Ant McPartlin has been spotted for the first time since his drink-driving arrest on Sunday. The TV star has finally broken cover after his brush with the law over the weekend. The 42-year-old presenter emerged from his house today after spending two days in hiding following the car accident in in Richmond, south west London.
Ant hid his eyes behind dark sunglasses and looked stony-faced as he walked out his front door and headed to a waiting car. His appearance comes days after he failed a roadside breathalyser test at the scene after colliding with two other cars while driving on Sunday. Ant was held in police custody for ten hours before arriving home on Monday.
It has since been revealed he has returned to rehab, after undergoing treatment for prescription drug and alcohol addiction last summer and as a result, his popular Saturday evening show Saturday Night Takeaway – which he hosts with presenting partner Declan Donnelly – will not broadcast this coming weekend and possibly permanently. A source said: “Ant is now out of things professionally, completely cut off from everything. He’s checked out.
