Luckily, the crisis was averted, with the pair both managing to cross the river and carry on with their stroll as normal. 

Ant seemed in good spirits on the outing, collecting sticks to throw for the pooches and chasing the dogs around the park. 

Ant’s dog Hurley was also on the walk with them. It’s believed he will  share custody of the pooch with Lisa, as she recently tweeted about her love for him, calling him her ‘baby.’

It was claimed he will be forced to share ownership of the five-year-old chocolate Labrador in a bid to for an amicable divorce, alleges The Sun.

Speaking to the online publication, a source detailed the devastating blow for both parties involved: ‘Ant adores Hurley – he’s like his child – but obviously so does Lisa who calls him ‘my boy’.  

‘It’s a very sensitive situation because they always thought they would raise him together, but they are currently sharing custody and there will be a formal agreement made in the coming weeks.’

The former pop singer, 41, will allegedly work on show’s spin-off Britain’s Got More Talent instead, where she will be less likely to run into Ant amid their rumoured £31million divorce battle.

Sources claimed Lisa, who is Stephen Mulhern’s beauty assistant, is keen to ‘continue as normal’ and wants to keep things ‘civilised’ with her husband of 11 years

‘Lisa has worked on BGT for years and is keen to continue as normal. She has friends there and enjoys being part of the show,’ a source told The Sun.

‘She’s generally done Stephen’s make-up and helped other people but this year the plan is for her to work exclusively on the spin-off.’
