Ant McPartlin Will Conclude Rehab In Time For 'I'm A Celebrity' This Year


Ant Mcpartlin Ant and Dec

Following suggestions that he was preparing to take up to a year out of the spotlight, ITV bosses have confirmed that Ant Mcpartlin will be returning by the end of 2017 to present the upcoming series of ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’.

The 41 year old presenter revealed earlier this year that he nearly died as he battled depression and struggled to overcome dependencies on alcohol and prescription drugs. He entered rehab back in June this year, having been addicted to super-strength painkillers for two years after a knee operation back in 2015.

When news of it came out, it cast doubt over whether the Geordie presenter would be able to front ‘I’m a Celebrity…’ in Australia in October alongside his colleague Declan Donnelly as they do every year.

Bruce Forsyth Reckons Britain’s Got Talent Shouldn’t Include Kids


Bruce Forsyth Ant and Dec

British television legend Bruce Forsyth – current presenter of Strictly Come Dancing – has announced that children shouldn’t be allowed on Britain’s Got Talent.

"I don't think they should put children on that are too young. If you're going to do that, have a separate show. Have a children's show, British Children Have Talent," Forsyth told The Mail on Sunday. "To put little children through that kind of an ordeal, I think that is wrong. I think it was last year some poor little girl of about 11 was crying her eyes out on there. I don't think that's entertainment." BGT – hosted by Ant and Dec – has become one of the most popular shows on television as it pits contestants against each other in singing, dancing, magic tricks or even dog shows. Forsyth, too, has become a British staple over the years. Speaking of his return to Strictly Come Dancing, he added: "It's looking like I'll definitely be doing it and I'm looking forward to it." Forsyth recently revealed that he wants Ant & Dec to replace him on Strictly if he quits.

"So many people have been put in the frame, but I'd love Ant and Dec to do it. I think they'd do an amazing job," he said, fully endorsing the Geordie pair, who rose to prominence with their cheeky antics on Byker Grove and their musical styling as PJ & Duncan.

Ant And Dec Plotting American Saturday Night Takeaway


Ant and Dec

For all Ant and Dec’s huge success on British TV, we must admit we’ve never really envisioned them crossing over to an American audience. For one thing their brand of humour feels very British in itself and, for another, Cheryl Cole’s disastrous attempt to make it on the new X Factor stateside went awry for, among other reasons, people struggling to understand her Geordie accent.

Nevertheless, it’s become public knowledge that the duo are indeed discussing a move to America, where they’ll be taking their Saturday evening entertainment show Saturday Night Take Away with them. They did try taking on America back on 2009, as STV points out, but their show Wanna Bet? lasted only six episodes before being cut due to poor ratings. However they clearly feel their luck has changed and, speaking on television, Declan Donnelly addressed the speculation. “There's murmurings and there's talk about [the US] and obviously it's done so well here” he said, of the show that’s in its 10th series in the UK. “There's only two left of the current run here, so there's talk about it. I don't know, I think it would be great, it would be fun to do in the States – Takeaway would be amazing out there. It's a big country - lots of people, lots of fun you could have - so who knows?"

Elsewhere, the pair could be set to top the UK singles charts with their 1993 hit ‘Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble’ after they performed the song on last weekend’s ‘Takeaway. Bookies William Hill have them at 8/13 to succeed.
