What Is The UK Drink Drive Limit And What Are The Punishments For Breaking It

Ant McPartlin is officially back to work as he joined Declan Donnelly for the first day of Britain’s Got Talent.

The 43-year-old resigned from all TV duties throughout 2018 after he was arrested for drink-driving in March, where he crashed his Mini into two vehicles and was later confirmed to be twice the legal limit.

He subsequently sought treatment in rehab and has spent the best part of last year focusing on his recovery and enjoying his new relationship with former PA Anne-Marie Corbett.

But he reunited with his bestie Dec for Britain’s Got Talent auditions at the London Palladium, and the pair marked the occasion with a selfie, which was captioned: ‘Audition day 1. The boys are back in town!’

They were later snapped clambering out a taxi in front the legendary venue, surrounded by the legion of fans who stood by the star through think and thin.

His BGT co-stars have spent the past year strenuously pledging their support for Ant, with Simon previously assuring: ‘This was a very difficult one for all sorts of reasons.

‘As you will see in the show, we always stand by our friends. We are all human.

‘Our show of friendship is what we did in the first show if that makes sense.

‘Nobody was excluded, it wasn’t awkward, but it is a very difficult time for him.

‘We have known each other a long time and you stand by the people you have worked with over the years. The most important thing is he has manned up. He is going to get himself back together.

‘This is what happens, it is happening to people all over the world. People, for whatever reason, get into a rut and times like this you stand by your mates. It has always been that way.

‘But the show goes on, it’s a simple as that.’

Ant was forced to pull out of Saturday Night Takeaway midseries in 2018, with Dec fronting the show solo – a first in both of their careers as the nation’s best-loved duo.
