Ant McPartlin and girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett are about to take a huge step in their relationship.Ant will be heading back to I'm a Celebrity after missing last year's series as he battled alcohol issues and prescription drug addiction, and Anne-Marie will reportedly be joining him.
According to reports, the presenter wants his 43-year-old girlfriend - who is also his sober coach - by his side while he films in Australia.
"Ant’s thrilled that she will be with him," a source told The Sun. "She is vital to his recovery and a month away from her would have had a detrimental impact on his mental health."
Ant and Anne-Marie got together three months after he split from ex Lisa Armstrong, whom he was married to for 11 years.
The pair's relationship appears to be going from strength to strength as last month it was also reported the couple are planning to move into a £6 million mansion.
