The 42-year-old has had a difficult few months with his drink-driving charge and rehab stint.

Ant McPartlin stepped down from his TV commitments in March after his arrest and checked into rehab, leaving co-host Declan Donnelly to continue the series of alone.

Ant also missed the final two episodes of Saturday Night Takeaway, leaving Dec to present the finale alone in Orlando, Florida.

He was also notably missing from the TV BAFTAs red carpet last Sunday.

However, rather than fly solo, Dec was accompanied by his wife Ali Astall, and of course, the bump.

Amid the Ant drama, Dec, 42, and Ali, 41, announced they are expecting their first child which is due in September.

EX-WIFE: Ant and Lisa reportedly split earlier this year

Given how recently Ant came out of rehab, it is unlikely that he will reprise his hosting duties on Britain’s Got Talent which is currently airing now before the live shows begin.

Ant had previously admitted that he was addicted to alcohol and prescription drugs.

He later split with his wife Lisa Armstrong, 41, before being fined £86,000 for the drink driving offence where he crashed his Mini into two other cars.
