LISA Armstrong has admitted she struggled with “insecurities” following her split from Ant McPartlin.
The 42-year-old make-up artist split in 2018 after 11 years of marriage, but she has admitted the whole ordeal has “chipped away” at her confidence.
Speaking to The Daily Star, she said: “Nobody is immune to insecurities – nobody!
“We all have issues that chip away at our confidence on a daily basis.
“The celebrity version of perfection that bombards us every day is not real.”
The beauty expert believes social media is also to blame for her low morale.
She added: “Social media makes us hold ourselves to unrealistic standards.
“There is no such thing as perfection and uniqueness is what makes us all so very special.”
Lisa has taken on a new project, and will launch a new makeover series, in a bid to boost other people’s self esteem.
Speaking about thee web series, which features 10-minute episodes, she said: “Make-up has the power to bring out your best features.
“It highlights rather than distracts. I hope to show that with faith and with courage we can all shine!”
The former couple sparked speculation they had gone their separate ways in December 2017, as they did not spend Christmas together.
However, it wasn’t until October last year they officially divorced.
