Ant McPartlin will be making a a big return to TV – but only when he is “well and fit enough”.

ITV’s Chief Executive Carolyn McCall confirmed that the the 42-year-old will be returning to the channel, just not “a moment too soon”.

She told ITV News:

“So, we wish Ant well. Clearly, he won’t come back a moment too soon.

“So I mean he will come back when he’s well and when he is ready to come back.

“ITV will not be putting him under any pressure to come backless he’s well and fit enough to come back.

She was asked again if the Britain’s Got Talent and I’m a Celebrity presenter would be returning to ITV, to which she replied: “As far as I know, that is true.”

Earlier this year, Ant was convicted of drink-driving following a car crash in London this March.

He re-entered rehab following his arrest, and announced that he was taking some time off from his current TV commitments.

His publicist said in a statement at the time:

“Ant has decided to go back into treatment and step down from his current TV commitments.

“He has spoken with Dec and ITV today and asked for time off for the foreseeable future.”

His presenting partner, Declan Donnelly, hosted the final episodes of Saturday Night Takeaway and Britain’s Got Talent solo.
