British TV host Ant Mcpartlin is nursing a sore head after he was punched in a bar brawl on Tuesday (08Mar11).
The small screen star was watching a soccer match in The Barley Mow pub in Chiswick, West London when a man began to taunt him, shouting, "Where is your girlfriend?" - referring to Mcpartlin's comedy partner Declan Donnelly.
The unnamed punter, believed to be a teenager, then lunged at Mcpartlin.
Eyewitness Giedrius Kudzinskas tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "Ant didn't react and this bloke launched himself at him and punched him in the face.
"Ant reeled back and then a big fight broke out as his mates came to help him. Other people jumped in and held back the other guy.
"The bloke was thrown out but when Ant left later, he was waiting for him. There was another lot of shouting and then Ant walked off.
"It was all totally unprovoked. He was furious about what he had said to him."
A spokesperson for Mcpartlin has confirmed the star was hit but will not press charges.
