Ant McPartlin has moved his mother into his London home to help support him when his wife returns to work.
The 'Britain's Got Talent' presenter - who recently completed a stint in rehab due to prescription drugs and booze addictions - has asked his mother Christine to stay at his home in the UK capital because his wife Lisa, 40, has returned to work as a make-up artist on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

Ant, 41, spent two months in rehab before going home to visit his mother in his native Newcastle.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: "He needed to go home and get back to his roots - it was just the tonic he needed.
"Even though he is settled in London, Newcastle will always be his true home and going back there is like going back to normality for him.
"With his family all around him to support him and having visited his mum he is finally getting everything back together and can start working at making things up to Lisa.
"He is ashamed at what he has put her through and determined to make things right.
"But he knows that will take work and time."
And Ant then asked Christine to come to London with him as he settles back into life after rehab.
Speaking previously about his mother's thoughts on his prescription pills addiction and rehab stint, Ant said: "She's happy to have me back."
"People do notice the difference in you when you're down and depressed. "She noticed it. She said she's really happy to have her old son back, which is nice to hear."
