Ant is set to make his comeback pretty soon

With I’m A Celeb finishing up last night, everyone has been wondering when Ant McPartlin will make his TV comeback.

This was the first time in 16 years that Ant missed out on presenting the show with Declan Donnelly whilst he also missed out on the live shows of Britain’s Got Talent this year too.

Ant has been off our screens for almost a year now after he decided to take a break to recover from a drink and prescription drug addiction following his drink driving conviction earlier this year.

But it sound like Ant could be returning to work very soon.

According to The Sun Ant could be reunited with Dec on screen in January for the Britain’s Got Talent auditions.

A source 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.”

"It’s been an incredible difficult two-year period but he has been entirely focused on turning his life around in order to return to work.”

"ITV is very excited about Ant and Dec being reunited – but Ant’s recovery has been everyone’s first priority."

Ant was replaced by Holly Willoughby on this year’s I’m A Celeb and although it’s thought Ant will return to the show next year, show bosses are apparently keen to keep Holly on the show in some capacity.
