Strictly’s Lisa Armstrong gives beach look demo after fun at Blackpool seaside

Lisa Armstrong showed off how to nail a beachy look after she had a great time up in Blackpool for the Strictly Come Dancing weekend.

Lisa has been through a tough year, having stood by husband Ant McPartlin through his booze and prescription drug addiction before he publicly announced an end to their 11-year marriage in January.

And her heart was broken all over again in June when Ant announced he was in a new relationship – with none other than his and Lisa’s old personal assistant Anne-Marie Corbett.

Lisa travelled up to Blackpool ahead of the Strictly ballroom special, and was spotted out the night before with a group of friends and colleagues from the show, letting her hair down with a bottle of white wine.

Lisa, 42, wore her newly blonde hair slicked back and opted for a fresh face as she cracked jokes with her mates.

A source close to the makeup artist told Mirror Online: "She was feeling relaxed as she’s away from the stress at home and with people who care about her.

"It’s been a tough few months for her, but luckily she’s smiling again."

And so fans of the show are not without their seaside fun, Lisa’s make-up tutorial on It Takes Two featured how to nail a natural, beach inspired look.

She joked about the atmosphere in the make-up demo, compared to the usual show: "I always say it’s so peaceful here – rather than in a make up room on a Saturday! It’s chaos."

Her colleague reminded fans of all the work they have to do after the show, as Lisa joked about the carnage that comes with it.

She added: "We have to take hair out, washing faces, chasing people down the corridors for hair pieces and gems."
