ITV confirms Ant McPartlin will be back on TV later this year

We’re delighted about this!

We’ve just gotten wind of some TV news that’s made us very happy.

Ant and Dec are hands-down our favourite presenting duo (sorry Holly and Philip), so we were devastated with the news that Ant would be taking a break from TV to attend rehab.

Many of us thought that this meant that he might take the year off I’m A Celebrity, with other presenters even being tipped to take his place.

Thankfully, ITV has confirmed that Ant and Dec will be back presenting the show this November.

Responding to a question about whether the show would take a break this year, ITV boss Kevin Lygo said;

“How very dare you! Ant is doing really well and we’re expecting him to return to I’m a Celebrity, so we won’t be resting it.”

Happy days!

Ant, 41, recently made his return to social media and thanked fans for their support.

We’re not exactly looking forward to the summer coming to an end but if there’s one thing that’ll get us excited for dark winter evenings, it’s the prospect of having this pair back in our sitting rooms.
