Understandably, the Strictly Come Dancing makeup artist kept her father's illness private as she was also dealing with her divorce from husband of 12 years, Ant McPartlin.

Lisa and 44-year-old Ant finally came to an agreement two years after splitting up.

The TV presenter reportedly handed their £5 million home in West London over in the settlement, after an "eight-hour negotiation".

However, the former couple still share custody of their pet Labrador, Hurley, and Lisa is said to be keen to sell the house they lived in together.

A source claimed: "She and Ant lived in the house for years. It holds a lot of bad memories and now the divorce is being finalised she wants to start again somewhere new."

Last month, The Sun reported how Lisa sent Ant's new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett a stream of abusive text messages.

Lisa told Anne-Marie she was "hated" in the wake of the £31million divorce settlement.

It is not known whether Anne-Marie, the ex-couple’s former PA, replied but tensions between the two women remain high.

A source said: "With all the stress of the past couple of years, Lisa is probably exhausted.

"She snapped and fired off a string of middle-of-the-night texts, one of which told Anne- Marie that everyone hated her.

"Obviously, Anne-Marie was extremely shaken and upset. She had hoped that after all this time, everyone could have moved on."
