Ant McPartlin to return to Britain's Got Talent this Friday

Holly stood in for Ant on last year's I'm A Celebrity

Revealing he was feeling "really emotional", Ant said: "I've missed you all".

Last year, Donnelly hosted the live Britain's Got Talent shows solo, although McPartlin had appeared in the pre-recorded audition episodes. This Morning's Holly Willoughby also stepped into his role for I'm a Celebrity at the end of the year.

Turning to Dec, he said: "As for you, I've missed you". Get Me Out of Here! because he was taking some time out to focus on himself, the producers were unsure about whether he would return for the series. Thank you very much, what a warm welcome.

The pair then hugged on stage as the audience cheered.

Simon Cowell seemed similarly happy to have Ant back on the "BGT" team, telling him: "We missed you; it wasn't the same".

Kyrie Irving: Young Celtics have 'a lot of learning to do'
If the team decides to trade Terry Rozier for nothing more than draft picks, then a spot would open there. Kyrie Irving apologized to LeBron James after the Celtics' loss to the Magic on Saturday.

Following McPartlin's drink-driving charge, he was banned from driving for 20 months and fined £86,000.

Britain's Got Talent returns to screens in the Spring.

Another post read: "Great to see you both back on the scene - together".

McPartlin stepped down from all of his TV commitments after being charged with drink-driving in March a year ago, before he was later banned from the road for 20 months and fined £86,000.

The incident saw McPartlin put his career on pause having previously checked into rehab back in 2017 with a painkiller addiction.

In March McPartlin was arrested for drink-driving after he crashed his Mini Cooper into two cars in Richmond, Southwest London.

Simon and Amanda have been the judges of every season of Britain's Got Talent, while David and Alesha have been on the show since season six in 2012.
