The source said: "He and Lisa have not yet decided if they will spend Christmas together. Ant is focused on recovery and thinks it best he doesn’t move home for a while.

"This has been a difficult time and, while both want to make things work, they are struggling to find a way to move forward together.

"Ant’s been bolstered by I’m a Celeb’s viewing figures, which seem to show the public still support him. Lisa has been by herself, and having a good time with her pals has proved a good distraction."

However, whilst Lisa, who is head of make-up on Strictly Come Dancing, has kept a dignified silence throughout the spotlight on her marriage for the last few months, she finally hit back at rumours a couple of weeks ago on her Twitter page.

She wrote a series of hashtags which read: "#writewhatyouwant #haventbeentoOzfor10years #ihaveajob #allaloadofmadeupshit #imnotestrangedthank-you #asyouwere."

Defiant Lisa has also retweeted posts from fans who have sent notes of comfort, including: "I feel so sorry for you at the minute, your life doesn't seem to be your own. Keep your chin up, you have plenty people supporting you."

Do Ant McPartlin and Joe Swash have a secret feud?

Meanwhile over in Australia, fans have noticed that things are a little... Well, frosty between Ant and his colleague Joe Swash, who is presenting the Extra Camp spin-off show.

Joe, who won the show back in 2008, told viewers of the show on Saturday to "party" with him, and Ant immediately said: "Ugh, sounds awful."

This comes after the Friday show which saw the pair attempt to nip rumours of a rift in the bud after Dec even picked up on the awkwardness.

Ant asked Joe: "What's the matter with you?" and Dec said: "What is going on here, I read this online, what's the beef here? Is it genuine beef?"

Joe said: "No I just think there's a fine line between not liking someone and finding them very horny."

Ant replied: "That's what I am, sexually attracted to you Joe," and Dec joked: "I wasn't sure whether it was tension or sexual tension."

They then had an awkward embrace as they tried to hug it out, with Joe jokingly leaning in for a kiss.

Ant pushed him off, saying that Joe was "disgusting."
