Ant McPartlin Is Returning To 'Britain's Got Talent' Tomorrow
Ant McPartlin will make his return to Britain's Got Talent tomorrow after his year-long hiatus, it has been confirmed.
The Geordie TV presenter stepped out of the limelight and away from all his presenting duties with Declan Donnelly following his arrest for drink driving last year.
Ant will now return to work tomorrow (Friday, 18th January) alongside Dec, with the news being confirmed on Thursday's Good Morning Britain.
Presenter Richard Arnold confirmed his return, telling viewers: "I can officially announce that after a year off Ant will start filming on the new series of BGT.
"Can you believe it has come around again? How the time flies."
Ben Shephard said that Ant was "looking very well" with Susanna Reid adding: "And he'll still clean up next week at the National Television Awards".

Richard went on to explain that Ant an Dec will be reuniting for the auditions which will kick off in London.
He added: "They're reuniting on Friday for the auditions of course, getting underway in London on Friday before the rest of the BGT continue their search for talent next month."
Reports emerged last month claiming that Ant would be returning to the upcoming series of the ITV talent show, with a source claiming that it would be an 'emotional return' for all of those involved.
Ant's ex-wife Lisa Armstrong won't be working behind-the-scenes as a make-up artist on BGT this year. Lisa was axed as working with her ex-husband has become 'untenable'.
Holly Willoughby stepped in for Ant on the latest series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! although insisted that the TV gig was a one-off only despite fans begging for her to make a return next year alongside the Geordie duo.
Ant was given the biggest ever fine for drink driving of £86,000 in court last year after pleading guilty, and was banned from driving for 20 months.
