ITV says Ant McPartlin will take a break from television presenting until 2019.
They’ve confirmed that he will miss the next series of ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ and ‘Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’.
The duo have broken their silence via a statement on the entertainers website.
ITV also confirmed that Dec would host the upcoming series from the Australian jungle by himself.
The Geordie duo have jointly-decided not to front a new series of Saturday Night Takeaway next Spring.
Ant’s been to rehab and is taking a break from work commitments following a conviction for drink-driving.
