Ant McPartlin set to return to Britain's Got Talent this week

Ant McPartlin set to return to Britain's Got Talent this week”

Ant pulled out of hosting Saturday Night Takeaway in March after he was arrested for drink driving.

He has taken the rest of the year off, skipping I'm A Celeb - but is now gearing up to get back to work.

Filming on the next series of Britain's Got Talent is set to begin in London on Friday with host Ant McPartlin returning to the fold.

In August past year, Ant revealed he's taking a break from presenting with co-host Declan Donnelly to focus on recovering from his painkiller addiction, months after his drink-driving arrest in April.

"Can you believe its come around again? How the time flies". Get Me Out Of Here!, with Holly Willoughby replacing Ant on the latter.

McPartlin was suspended from driving for 20 months and received an £86,000 fine after crashing his Mini Cooper while more than two times over the legal drink-driving limit.

"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".

Declan Donnelly then presented I'm A Celebrity.

According to Arnold, McPartlin is "looking very well" ahead of his TV return.

Donnelly hosted the series solo during McPartlin's absence.

Britain's Got Talent, which features judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon, will be broadcast on ITV later this year.

Later that year, Ant entered rehab following struggles with a two-year addiction to painkillers as a result of a knee operation.
