Fans flooded the pic with comments and said they missing having Ant on the programme.

One said: "So looking forward to having you both back. Missed you last year Ant x."

I'm so happy for you both.

Another wrote: "Great to see Ant looking back on form."

A third put: "Can't wait for the show boys, great to see you back Ant."

Someone else said: "Oh yes! Bring on the laughs. Ant and Dec back at the helm."

"Aww Ant and Dec. I'm so happy for you both," wrote a fifth.

"Looking forward to this so much! Enjoy," commented a sixth, adding: "And lovely to see you back, Ant."

Not all viewers are happy to have Ant back, though. Some took to social media to call for ITV to reinstate Holly Willoughby, who stood in for Ant in 2018 while he took time off from his TV duties following his drink-driving conviction.

Over on Twitter, a number of viewers tweeted saying they wished the This Morning host was returning for the 2019 series.

But the list of camp mates left a number of fans sorely disappointed, with a number of them complaining that they don't know who many of the stars actually are.
