It has been confirmed that Ant McPartlin will return to work on Britain's Got Talent on Friday
Ant McPartlin will return to his post as a BGT presenter tomorrow (17 January), it has been confirmed.
Good Morning Britain's Richard Arnold said on this morning's show: "I can officially announce that after a year off Ant will start filming on the new series of BGT."Can you believe its come around again? Oh how the time flies.
"They're reuniting on Friday for the auditions of course, getting underway in London on Friday before the rest of the BGT continue their search for talent next month."
Ben Shepherd then added that Ant is "looking very well", and Susanna Reid added: "And he'll still clean up next week at the National Television Awards.
Ant and Dec won Best Presenter at the NTAs last year for the 17th year running, and their nomination this year caused some controversy as Ant had taken most of the year off following a stint in rehab.
Ant last year announced he'd be taking time out from presenting work after his involvement in a collision in south London while he was driving under the influence.
He was then given what is thought to be the biggest drink-drive fine ever, £86,000, after pleading guilty. He was also banned from the road for 20 months.
Speaking outside court after the incident, Ant said: "I just want to say I'm truly sorry for what happened.
"High standards are expected of me, I expect them of myself. I've let myself down, I let a lot of people down. And for that I am truly sorry.
"I'd like to apologise to everybody involved in the crash and I'm just thankful no-one was seriously hurt."
