Ant McPartlin will make his I’m a Celebrity comeback with girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett by his side.

The new series, which will start in November, will see Ant return to our screens with co-presenter Dec.

Last year, Ant, 43, missed the series as he battled alcohol and prescription drug addiction, and friend and fellow presenter Holly Willoughby stepped in.

It was the first time that Ant had missed presenting the show that he usually hosts with telly sidekick Declan Donnelly since the programme first aired in 2002.

Sources said that Ant was determined to return this year for the 19th series with girlfriend Anne-Marie acting as a pillar of support.

She has reportedly been Ant's "sober coach" and has been vital to his recovery and will fly to Australia to support him during filming the month-long filming Down Under.
