After Britain’s Got Talent wrapped up earlier this year, Ant revealed his addiction to prescription painkillers following a botched operation on his leg.
He then sought treatment in rehab and is now said to be giving wife Lisa Armstrong “some space”.

But as he prepares to return to his presenting role on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Ant looked knackered while out and about with Dec and his wife of two years, Ali Astall.
As the trio stopped by the shops to pick up some goods, Ant was pictured frowning as they made their way around the town.
At one point, he stopped to look at the ground, rubbing his forehead as the hot summer sun beamed down on his back.

The star was later snapped smoking on a cigarette outside of a café.
Ant travels with Dec for the ITV series every year, while his wife Lisa stays at home for her own career.
But after fans questioned the Strictly Come Dancing makeup artist over why she hadn’t jetted out to join her husband in Australia, Lisa hit back in a tweet.
