Ant McPartlin will return to presenting duties on ITV. 

The news was confirmed by ITV boss Carolyn McCall, saying that he won't be back 'a moment too soon.' 

Speaking to ITV news, the channel's Chief Executive said '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 back unless he's well and fit enough to come back.'

Back in April, Ant was banned from driving for 20 months, given an £86,000 fine, £85 prosecution fee and £170 surcharge.

The court heard that the breathalyser reading for Ant was 75mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35mg, meaning that Ant was over twice the legal limit.
