Ant McPartlin has taken to Twitter to wish his fans a Happy Halloween alongside a photo of himself and telly partner Dec Donnelly.

The presenter, 42, shared a throwback snap to the duo’s shared Twitter account on Wednesday evening showing the pair dressed up as Batman and Robin.

Ant, who is taking the rest of the year off to focus on his sobriety, told his best pal Dec it was “time to go trick or treating again”.

He wrote: “Right Dec, time to go trick or treating again! Happy Halloweenfolks! #TrickOrTreating # A.”

Fans were thrilled by Ant’s post with one person writing: “Aww Ant, Happy Halloween to you. I really miss you with Dec on the telly. Made up to see your tweet.”

Another said: “Happy Halloween to my favourite dynamic duo!” while a third added: “Happy Halloween Ant… great to see you back.”

Ant has rarely shared anything to social media since March, when he announced plans to take a break from the spotlight after a drink-drive incident.

Meanwhile, in August, Ant revealed he would be taking the rest of the year off to focus on his recovery following a stint in rehab.

He will not join Dec in Australia this month to co-host I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! marking the first time Ant’s ever missed the show.

Dec will instead be joined by Holly Willoughby, who will take a temporary leave from her role on This Morning to fill Ant’s shoes.

Ant & Dec have also announced Saturday Night Takeaway will go on hiatus in 2019 and return for a new series in 2020.

In September, Ant celebrated six months of sobriety in a photo alongside an old friend, showing Ant looking healthy and happy.
