9th Aug 18 | News

Ant McPartlin has confirmed that he will take a break from all TV roles until 2020.

Saturday Night Takeaway will not return for a new series next year - while Declan Donnelly will present I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here without his sidekick.

42 year old Ant said in a statement:

“My recovery is going very well and for that to continue having spoken to Dec and ITV, I have made the decision to take the rest of the year off.

I’d like to thank both Dec and ITV for their continued support and I look forward to getting back to work in the new year."

The presenter stepped back from TV commitments and public appearances following a drink-driving charge earlier this year.
