Stephen Mulhern Says Ant McPartlin Won't Be Returning To I'm A Celebrity
Ant McPartlin's Britain's Got Talent colleague Stephen Mulhern has been talking about the host's current situation.
Mulhern, who is a close friend of McPartlin, said that Ant won't be back until next year at the earliest due to his recovery.
Speaking to Best magazine, Mulhern said: "Fingers crossed, Ant will get the treatment he needs and be back to his old self for next year.
"But he does need the rest and to be left alone and given the time to recover."
Considering this news, that would mean that Ant won't be co-hosting I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here with Declan Donnelly which would be filming in Australia later this year.
Ant is currently taking a break from work following a drink-driving conviction. McPartlin was banned from driving for 20 months and fined £86,000 after crashing in to two cars while drunk in London.
