Anthony McPartlin, of Ant and Dec fame, has responded to his fans' concern after it emerged that he had been put into a headlock by thugs and experienced a dramatic assault.

McPartlin had been enjoying a meal at the Old Station House in the affluent area of Chiswick with his mother Christine and an aunt when the gang started making lewd gestures at him and videoing his reaction through the window of the restaurant, according to The Sun. His 58 year-old mother went outside to confront the gang but was reportedly pushed to the floor.

"The youths were banging on the window, filming them and generally just being a pain - and they just wouldn't let it lie," a witness told The Sun, adding "Ant was completely reasonable and said, 'Leave it out, lads, I'm just having a quiet meal.' But it immediately turned really nasty and one of them jumped on him and put him in a head-lock."

After seeing his mother thrown to the ground, the I'm A Celebrity host was apparently left "furious and shaken" and called the police. However, the youths had made a hasty exit once the police had arrived on the scene. Though names weren't confirmed, a Metropolitan Police spokesman has since confirmed that there was an incident on Spencer Road in West London on Thursday stated.

The 38 year-old Geordie presenter responded to his many fans' concern today, tweeting "Thanks for all your lovely tweets. Me and my mam are absolutely fine. Not gonna let an idiot ruin things. All good and V happy!" The incident will have reminded Ant of a similar experience in 2011 when he was watching football in the Barley Mow in Chiswick when he was assaulted by a young man.
