Ant McPartlin CHARGED with drink driving following vehicle crash

Piers Morgan agrees with Heart listeners- Dec should go it alone

Piers Morgan agrees with Heart listeners- Dec should go it alone

While Piers thinks that Ant should continue on his own, he also understands that Dec would not go on without Ant's blessing.

The Saturday Night Takeaway telly star was involved in a three-vehicle crash in south-west London over the weekend and was taken to the Police station after failing a breathalyser test at the side of the road.

It's not yet known whether Lisa will be at the magistrates' court next month to support Ant as he enters a plea for one charge of drink-driving.

All three episodes of this season's finale of their TV show "Saturday Night Takeaway" were originally going to be pulled from their airwaves after Ant McPartlin announced earlier this week that he was going back into rehab after video footage of him involved in a two auto collision went viral.

FORMER Rangers star Gazza has offered to host Saturday Night Takeaway with Geordie pal Declan Donnelly after Ant McPartlin's "drink-drive" shock.

"A child passenger from one of the cars received medical attention as a precaution".

As well as presenting Saturday Night Takeaway, the pair host ITV's Britain's Got Talent and I'm a Celebrity...

"But obviously Dec is in a bad state of mind because this is a situation where there are no winners".

He added: "Ant would have to say, I've [let] him to do that, say break the pact [and go ahead without me]".

Posting the message online, Dec signed off simply: "Dec x".

Ant has re-entered rehab for a second time after the crash.

His agent said in a statement last weekend: 'Ant has made a decision to go back into treatment and step down from his current TV commitments.

'Everyone at ITV and the Takeaway team feels we owe it to the audience to complete the series'.

And now the Daily Mirror have revealed ITV and Dec made that decision after an emotional chat with Ant - during which he gave his sidekick his blessing to go on to present the programme alone.

Ant, 42, has withdrawn from all upcoming TV commitments to get help, and Dec certainly looked under pressure as he left his London home today.
