Ant has been absent from TV for the past eight months following a well-publicised drink-driving accident which happened back in April.

He stepped down from filming commitments missing the last few shows of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

He spent some time in rehab recovering from alcohol issues as well as his addiction to pain killers.
