Ant McPartlin returns to work on Britain's Got Talent

Get Me Out Of Here! with Holly Willoughby instead of McPartlin.

He took part in the pre-recorded part of last year's series Britain's Got Talent, but Donnelly hosted the live shows alone.

The reunion is the first time since March 2018 that the award-winning presenters will have worked together, after McPartlin underwent treatment for alcohol addiction following a drink-driving charge which saw him banned from driving for 20 months and fined £86,000.

Introducing the first audition show on Friday, Donnelly told the audience: "We've got the judges back, the golden buzzer is back, and someone else is back".

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. My co-host for the series, would you please welcome.

Moved to tears, Ant said: "Oh god, I'm really, really emotional now. Make sure you look out for each other - we've missed having you around Ant, and hope you're feeling better in yourself now".

According to The Sun, a source close to the star said: "Ant has completed his recovery and ITV has decided he is ready to be back at work for Britain's Got Talent filming, which starts next month". I mean, even though Dec was brilliant, it still wasn't the same.

After he missed I'm A Celebrity.

"So on behalf of all of us, welcome back, we're family".

Viewers will see Ant and Dec reunited on screen later this year when Britain's Got Talent returns to ITV.

A third fan wrote: "It's so good to see Ant back and to see these two back together".

He crashed his Mini Cooper while driving more than two times over the legal drink-driving limit.

Britain's Got Talent returns with Cowell and Walliams as judges alongside Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.
