Ant McPartlin is set to leave rehab in a month [Wenn]
The Britain’s Got Talent host and the other half to Ant and Dec is currently in the midst of a two month rehab stay to overcome an addiction to prescription drugs and an ongoing battle with alcohol and substance abuse, and has seen neither Lisa or Dec throughout his stay.
A source told the Sunday Mirror of Ant: “He is doing really well. It has been a tough few weeks but he is coming through it and is now over the worst of it.
“Ant has been very brave and is totally committed to his recovery. All that matters to him is getting well and getting back to his best.

“That’s why, until now, he has decided he needs to be on his own to focus entirely on his illness and how he can best recover.
“Ant knows he has so much love and support – but this is a very personal battle that he is determined to win.”
The source continued: “Ant and Lisa have been apart for nearly two months. That would be tough for any married couple – but they will be reunited very soon.

“Lisa is desperate to see Ant and she is expected to visit him shortly. Dec will be also seeing him soon. It’s bound to be emotional but Ant knows that Dec will be there for him every step of the way.
“Ant’s priority is getting better. He has put his health before everything else, he is very committed to being well again.
“With his commitment and new-found strength, those close to him believe he will be back on TV in November. It’s something he is working towards and focusing on.”
