Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly PICTURED: They ‘hold crisis talks over their future in TV’

Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly looked sullen as they held a reportedly ‘difficult’ meeting about their TV future in Chiswick on Tuesday.

The presenting pair were said to be full of ‘silent anger’ and ‘frustration’ on the day, according to body language expert Judi James. 

However, the duo’s representative hit back at the claims, telling MailOnline: ‘This is yet another person spouting total rubbish just to try and get a moment in the spotlight on the back of Ant and Dec. They should be ashamed.’

The double act were joined by Ant’s ladylove Anne-Marie Corbett as well as Dec’s wife Ali Astall and baby daughter Isla.

Ant looked stony-faced during the outing, amid claims he is preparing to hand over £30million to his ex Lisa Armstrong to end their divorce battle.

The embattled star donned a suave blue blazer and practical trainers while he headed to the car with his rucksack in his hand.

Anne-Marie looked out of this world in her star-print jumpsuit and leather jacket when she joined her boyfriend and his TV sidekick. 

Ant left with Anne-Marie in tow as they both were seen clambering into the same Land Rover after their meet up with Dec and his wife Ali.

Ali was also on the scene to offer her support to her husband as she was seen pushing their little girl in a pram.

Body language expert Judi said the photos suggested Dec was bottling up a ‘silent anger’ and ‘frustration’.

‘We’re so used to seeing Ant and Dec grinning together like schoolboys that they appear almost unrecognisable in these grim-faced photos as they emerge from what have been described as crisis talks over their future together,’ she told The Mirror.

‘The fact they took their partners should have implied a bit of a friendly family atmosphere and a desire to restore all those old industrial-strength bonds but there’s no sign from any of their body language that the meeting was anything other than difficult.’

She added: ‘Dec’s body language signals hint at silent anger, frustration or anxiety. His features are contorted into a frown with deep lines etched at the sides of his mouth which is partially open with what look like clenched teeth and a slight lower jaw jut hinting at displeasure.’

MailOnline has contacted the duo’s representative for comment.  

It has been months since Ant last appeared on TV with Declan in pre-recorded Britain’s Got Talent scenes in May.

Ant has taken an extended break from the spotlight since his drink-drive arrest in March and subsequent rehab stint.

The long-term pals, who are expected to reunite on BGT early in the New Year, allegedly had a meeting in London to discuss their TV plans.

An insider told the publication: ‘Ant’s well-being is at the forefront of everyone’s minds and he’s in a great place.

‘But now they are trying to work out how his comeback will plan out and how everything will work. It’s been a tough year for everyone.’

Ant is expected to film Britain’s Got Talent early next year, when filming for the auditions start.

But as Dec will be away shooting I’m A Celebrity! with Holly Willoughby in Australia until December, the duo are allegedly keen to sort out their timetable now. 

MailOnline has previously contacted Ant and Dec’s representative for comment.

The pair’s outing comes amid claims Ant is ready to hand over half of his £60million fortune to ex Lisa Armstrong to end their ongoing divorce battle.

The TV presenter announced that he was splitting from his wife earlier this year and was due in court as part of the divorce case this week.

But he angered a judge when he failed to turn up at court, and was later seen walking his dog with new girlfriend Anne-Marie.

Friends of the star have said he is ready to pay Lisa £30million to draw a line under their marriage and end the legal wrangle.

A source told The Daily Express: ‘Ant has agreed that Lisa is going to get half of everything. He was told that he did not have to be there so he was shocked at the judge having a go at him.’

Ant has since apologised for missing the High Court hearing after the judge ‘told him off’ over the no show.

Instead of going to the hearing, the presenter, 42, was was seen walking Labrador Hurley on Wimbledon Common with former PA and new partner Anne-Marie, also 42. 

In snaps taken while the hearing was going on at the Royal Courts of Justice, Ant looked at ease as he strolled along the grass in the mild autumn weather.
