Lisa Armstrong was happy to be reunited with her dog Hurley amid the custody battle.

The make-up artist and her ex-husband Ant McPartlin remain at loggerheads over who will keep custody of their chocolate Labrador after their marriage crumbled.

Lisa has made a bid to keep the pooch full-time while Ant wanted the dog to split his time equally between them.

As their bitter divorce rages on, the behind-the-scenes Strictly star shared a sweet moment with her dog on Instagram .

Lisa rung in the New Year with her mother and she shared a rare photo on Instagram as they celebrated the end to a heartbreaking 2019.

The Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist was left devastated in May of last year when her beloved dad Derek lost his battle with cancer.

Paying tribute to him, she said: "Always with me and forever in my heart….. #dad #RIP #Theydaythefirstisthehardest #hurls #ohana".

The Strictly personality had kept her dad's diagnosis a secret while she endured a very public split with her ex Ant at the start of 2019.

A source told The Sun at the time: "A lot of people think Lisa is strong, and she is — but she’s had so much to cope with since she and Ant split up.

"There’s been one thing after another and at times she’s felt on her knees. But she’s kept it together and ploughed on.

"To do all of that whilst knowing your dad is seriously ill and on borrowed time is quite something. It would break most people."

This month also marks a year since she and Ant went public with the end of their 10-year marriage.

Ant has moved on with former PA Anne Marie Corbett who accompanied him to Australia for I'm A Celebrity in November.
