Ant McPartlin is said to be eager to spend the festive season with his wife, after facing a turbulent few months this year as he battled his addiction to prescription painkillers and alcohol.
He is currently in Australia presenting I’m A Celebrity alongside Declan Donnelly, but will soon jet home.
It was recently reported Ant had moved out of the home he shares with Lisa Armstrong, to a flat of his own just around the corner.
But the ITV presenter apparently wants to spend Christmas with his wife.
“She’s said they will see each other over Christmas,” a source told Daily Star Online of Lisa.
“Lisa would rather stay friendly than be resentful. She doesn’t want to ruin what they had – this isn’t a blame game.”

They continued: “Ant wants to spend this Christmas as her husband.”
OK! Online has contacted a representative for Ant to provide a comment.
Following speculation Ant and Lisa’s marriage is on the rocks as he continues his recovery, the Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist recently hit back at reports.
After being questioned by a fan on why she wasn’t joining her husband of 11 years in Australia, Lisa tweeted: “IhaventbeentoOzfor10years #ihaveajob #allaloadofmadeups**t #imnotestrangedthank-you #asyouwere.”
Ahead of his return to the jungle, Ant said he was “feeling great”.
