Ant McPartlin is expected to return to this year’s series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

ITV’s Director of Television, Kevin Lygo, has revealed that Ant is doing really well, after completing a stint in rehab.

The presenter, who has hosted the Australian-based reality series for years alongside his telly partner Declan Donnelly, entered rehab in June due to his problem with drugs and alcohol.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International TV Festival, Kevin said, “Ant is doing really well and we are expecting him to return for I’m a Celebrity.”

Ant has since revealed that a knee injury in 2014 led to his addiction to prescription pain medication and alcohol.

“I was at the point where anything – prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs – I would take. And take them with alcohol, which is ridiculous. The doctors told me, ‘You could have killed yourself’,” he told The Sun on Sunday.

“I didn’t think how dangerous they are. You just think you know best – ‘I’m in more pain, I’ll just whack another one down’. That’s the danger – self-medicating.”
