The popular I’m A Celebrity host made the brave decision to publicly reveal he was heading to the facility, following a battle with alcohol and prescription drugs.

And now, Ant’s devoted wife Lisa has been spotted on a rare appearance after Ant returned from rehab, looking in high spirits as she walked the pair’s beloved pet pooch in London.

Dressed in a casual ensemble consisting of a cosy coat, trendy ankle boots and short trousers, the make-up artist – who has recently returned to work behind the scenes on the brand new series of Strictly Come Dancing – looked happy and content as she walked through the capital.

Lisa hasn’t stopped gushing about working on the show on Twitter, often posting what products she would be using on the budding dancers.

Messaging Holby City star Chizzy Akudolu, she wrote: “So @chizzyakudolu I brought those lipsticks I was telling you about! #patmcgrathlabs You’ll be rocking all them colours #Strictly2017 x.”

Back in August, Lisa was reunited with her husband Ant after he returned from the facility. Ant reportedly ‘wept’ as he revealed his problem to both Dec and his wife Lisa weeks prior, confirming he needed to head to a two month rehabilitation centre to help work through his problems.

Dec himself took to social media to show his support for his double-act other half during the difficult time.

Thanking fans for their ongoing support, Dec wrote to the pair’s 6.58 million followers: “Thank you for all the kind messages and well wishes for the big fella. He will be touched. Your support is, as ever, much appreciated. DD xx.”

Speaking to The Sun, Ant revealed how depression led to addiction to prescription drugs, and an ongoing battle with alcohol and substance abuse.

He said: “I feel like I have let a lot of people down and for that I am truly sorry.

“I want to thank my wife, family and closest friends for helping me through this really difficult time. 

“I’ve spoken out because I think it’s important that people ask for help if they’re going through a rough time and get the proper treatment to help their recovery.”
