LISA Armstrong paid a tearful tribute to her late father today – four months on from his death.
The make-up artist, 42, was left heartbroken in May when Derek died following a battle with cancer.
Sharing a picture of Derek in his younger years, she wrote alongside a series of tear emojis: “4 months…. #dadda #myhero #love”
Lisa, who is currently busy getting ready for a new series of Strictly, was by her dad’s side when he passed away at the age of 71 at the family home.
She had kept his illness a secret while contending with the stress of her bitter divorce from Britain’s Got Talent host Ant McPartlin, also 42.
The pair are deadlocked over his £62million fortune. Legal costs have soared to £1.5million.
Lisa had been making regular trips from the property she used to share with Ant in West London to the family’s Oxford home.
She was with her mum and other family members and was said to be “distraught”.
A source said at the time: “A lot of people think Lisa is strong, and she is — but she’s had so much to cope with since she and Ant split up.
“There’s been one thing after another and at times she’s felt on her knees. But she’s kept it together and ploughed on.

“To do all of that whilst knowing your dad is seriously ill and on borrowed time is quite something. It would break most people.”
Last month Lisa revealed a tattoo tribute for her dad – a love heart with what looked like a Cancer Research Ribbon on one side on her forearm.
