Lisa Armstrong is reportedly planning to escape the UK on a sunny holiday when her ex-husband Ant McPartlin marries his fiancée Anne-Marie.
Ant proposed at Christmas and has reportedly set a date to marry his fiancée in August this year.
According to an insider, Lisa's best friend Craig Young invited her to stay in Los Angeles with him over the summer so she can get away from all the fuss.
"From the outset, she was clear that she did not want to be around once she found out the date," a source told heat magazine.
"While Lisa doesn't wish them any ill will and hopes the day goes well, she is keen to be far away when it takes place, which is completely understandable."
