Stars including Peter Andre will detail Ant’s “year from hell” in a Channel 5 show.

A spokeswoman for the documentary said: “This film offers insight on how Ant’s world collapsed around him and how it feels to have your personal problems played out in front of the nation.”

Ant, 43, returns in Britain’s Got Talent next month and I’m A Celebrity this winter.

Pop star Peter told readers of his New! magazine column: “I can’t give too much away because I don’t know what will make the final cut, but it’s basically about the pressures of the industry and the trials and tribulations facing Ant following his drink-driving arrest and rehab stint.”

The C5 spokeswoman added: “With Ant’s comeback due to officially go public with the next series of Britain’s Got Talent, the documentary hears from celebrities with similar experiences in the media spotlight and asks if Ant can successfully complete his recovery, reclaim and keep his place in one of the most successful TV partnerships of all time.”

The show comes as work on a programme exploring Ant and Dec’s heritage has started again.

Filming for the ITV programme stalled after his booze battle.

ITV’s director of television Kevin Lygo said: “We test their DNA and they go back and find relatives they didn’t know about.”
