Following his arrest in March last year, the popular show was taken off air for a week, before his presenting partner Declan Donnelly was forced to host the rest of the series alone.
Saturday Night Takeaway was then removed from the schedules this year, allowing Ant to recover from his addiction to booze and prescription painkillers.
Sharing a picture to Instagram, the TV host – who is in the middle of a lengthy divorce battle with ex-wife Lisa Armstrong – said he was "excited" to be back.
First meeting for Saturday Night Takeaway 2020…exciting times!
In the picture, the presenting duo can be seen sat among various crew members as they discuss the new series.
The caption read: "First meeting for Saturday Night Takeaway 2020…exciting times!"
Ashley Roberts was one of the first to reply. She said: "Go on boys!"
Others said they "couldn't wait" for the show to return.
One fan of the show said: "YYYEEEEESSSSSS!!!!! I'm soooo excited this is back!"
Another echoed the same sentiment and said: "Yay! I can’t wait for that show to start. I’m so happy and excited right now."
