His split from wife to his arrest in 2018, and addition as divorce filing in 2018, has summed up his tragedy section.
Just when many fans were wondering what's next for the famous anchor, he sparked his dating life with his new supportive girlfriend and supported firmly during his time of turmoil.
Separated From Decade-Long-Wife; Rumored To Be Patched Up
Anthony started dating makeup artist Lisa Armstrong in 1994. The romance lasted for more than a decade, and the couple finally got married in 2006 at St. Nicholas Church Taplow in Taplow, Great Britain.

After remaining married for 11 long years, the 43-year-old eventually filed for divorce in January 2018.
However, reports surfaced of the couple getting back together after Lisa reportedly supported her beau while he was spending his time in rehab post a drunk driving incident. Lisa was also seen flaunting her engagement ring in public. However, the rumors were crushed after Mirror claimed there was no chance of the couple getting back together.
Anthony and Lisa's divorce has not been settled yet, but it seems like he has already moved on with his life.
Dating New Woman, Ex-Wife Responses
Less than six months after filing the divorce, Anthony became romantically involved with his personal assistant, Anne-Marie Corbett.
The pair is believed to have grown closer after Anne comforted him during the time of his separation with Lisa. Like Anthony, Anne; who is a mother of two, had also gone through a recent tragedy as she broke up with her husband Scott in October 2017.
The couple became the support pillars for each other during their time of grief and slowly started developing romantic feelings for one another. Anne comforted Anthony in his hard time be it caught for the drunk driving incident or crashing his car in March 2018. She even joined him during his court proceedings.
A source claimed that the pair have been seeing each other since March 2018 when Anne was first pictured at Anthony's home taking his bins out and packing for him.

An insider talked to The Sun about the alleged affair between the employer and the employee,
"He's had a tough time of it, but Anne-Marie has put a smile back on his face again - she has been his rock."
The source further added,
"They have been living in each other's pockets, day in, day out. Knowing someone is there for him has brought him back from the brink — she's put him back together again."
In June 2018, the couple was spotted enjoying shopping at Harrods, which hinted towards the couple's prospering romance.
But not everyone is happy about their link up, and it seems like Anthony's ex-wife Lisa felt betrayed after her husband moved on so fast. On 17 June 2018, she posted a tweet with two shattered heart emojis and a red love heart. Although, Lisa expressed no words in the post yet the symbols were enough to show her despair.
Another thing that could be bothering Lisa is that Anne is a proven fertile woman with two daughters, and Anthony has an unfulfilled desire for becoming a father which he could not succeed while together with Lisa. Back in 2011, the couple had expressed their ambition of becoming parents to their children; however, it could not be accomplished despite repeated attempts.
As for Anthony and Anne, fans may be expecting a wedding soon, but the couple is taking their time to cope with recent breakups. Further, they have not been on an official date so it might be unsuitable to assume about them planning for a marriage.
While the wedding is on the way, Anne-Marie seems to be the lucky charm of Ant's life. She has brought fortunes for the man since her arrival. Firstly, Ant rehabilitated from his drug addictions and even volunteered to join a treatment center to overcome his substance abuse.

Then, Although he missed an entire season of I'm a Celeb, the show eventually won the BAFTA awards in May 2019. Ant, who was at the ceremony to give the acceptance alongside his co-host from the show Declan Donnelly and replacement host for the season Holly Willoughby, was even criticized for hugging all the credits despite his absence for the entire season.
Piers Morgan was the one to humiliate Ant as Piers called the TV Host "new John Terry." John was earlier mocked for accepting the 2012 Champions League trophy dressed in full Chelsea kit, despite not playing the game.
However, Ant didn't seem much concerned about the criticism and was even taking a walk with his girlfriend and dog, the next day.
