Ant is back: Emotional star reunited with Dec on Britain's Got Talent

Richard confirmed the news

Moved to tears, Ant said: "Oh god, I'm really, really emotional now".

McPartlin, 43, stepped away from his TV roles last March after a drink-driving charge.

McPartlin missed I'm A Celebrity.

Turning to Dec, he said: "As for you, I've missed you".

Holly Willoughby then stepped in to co-host I'm A Celebrity.Get Me Out Of Here! with December. The 42-year-old liked a tweet from a fan that read: "For you to lose your job because of your ex is very unfair and unjust, you're a lovely soul".

Another said: "Nice to have you back Ant. Dec is great and all that but we all know you're the amusing one".

"Shall we crack on before I cry?"

Simon Cowell seemed similarly happy to have Ant back on the "BGT" team, telling him: "We missed you; it wasn't the same". We missed you; it wasn't the same.

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




In Ant's absence, Dec continued to present the final two episodes of Saturday Night Takeaway alone, which was the first time the pair have ever been apart.

He was suspended from driving for 20 months and handed an £86,000 fine as a result of the collision.

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

Britain's Got Talent judge Walliams was among those celebrating McPartlin's return to the small screen, sharing a picture of himself with Ant and Dec on Instagram.

He was driving while more than twice the legal limit.

Ant previous 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.

The incident saw McPartlin put his career on pause having previously checked into rehab back in 2017 with a painkiller addiction.

Simon and Amanda have been the judges of every season of Britain's Got Talent, while David and Alesha have been on the show since season six in 2012.
