Lisa Armstrong fell for I'm A Celebrity
host Ant McPartlin as soon as they met, an old friend has revealed.
The former singer became acquainted with McPartlin eleven years ago at a teen magazine roadshow. At the time, she was a member of pop band Deuce along with Kelly O'Keefe, Paul Holmes and Craig Young.
"We first met Ant and Dec on tour. We were supporting them as PJ and Duncan and I fancied Ant because I thought he was gay too," old bandmate Paul told The Mirror
. "It was so funny. Both Lisa and I wanted him so it was a battle between us - but she got him. Dec even went out with Kelly for a while.
"Lisa is like my sister, she is so sweet, caring and just a great girl. I think that is the secret of their success. She just gets on with her career and lets him get on with his."
McPartlin and Armstrong are set to tie the knot in two weeks.
