He may have won ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’, but that didn’t stop Carl Fogarty from tearing into Ant Mcpartlin over his drink-driving charge, saying that the presenter should “man up”.

“Grow up, sort yourself out and take responsibility,” Fogarty told the newspaper on Thursday (April 19th), having no words of sympathy. “Don’t go running off to rehab every five minutes when something goes wrong."

McPartlin and his wife of 11 years, Lisa Armstrong, are apparently on the rocks after his return from rehab.
Following his recent stint in rehab for his addiction to alcohol and painkillers, presenter Ant Mcpartlin is reportedly repairing the strain that the ordeal put on his marriage to wife Lisa Armstrong after putting her “through hell”.
The 41 year old star, half of the legendary presenting duo Ant & Dec, shocked the world back in June this year after revealing that he had been battling dependencies on alcohol and painkillers following a knee operation a few years ago. He subsequently went into rehab for two months, but now that’s completed, he’s apparently trying to keep his marriage to 40 year old wife Lisa together.
The Daily Star reported on Friday (September 22nd) that, with the pair’s upcoming schedules, their 11 year marriage is coming under increasing pressure.
It had been speculated that McPartlin would have to miss presenting the ITV reality show alongside his colleague and best friend Declan Donnelly.
Following suggestions that he was preparing to take up to a year out of the spotlight, ITV bosses have confirmed that Ant Mcpartlin will be returning by the end of 2017 to present the upcoming series of ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’.
The 41 year old presenter revealed earlier this year that he nearly died as he battled depression and struggled to overcome dependencies on alcohol and prescription drugs. He entered rehab back in June this year, having been addicted to super-strength painkillers for two years after a knee operation back in 2015.
When news of it came out, it cast doubt over whether the Geordie presenter would be able to front ‘I’m a Celebrity…’ in Australia in October alongside his colleague Declan Donnelly as they do every year.
