Behind the scenes footage of Ant McPartlin on Britain's Got Talent just got leaked
So it looks like he will be appearing after all...
Behind the scenes footage of Ant McPartlin has been released by Britain's Got Talent producers ahead of his return to the show this weekend.
Despite being in rehab it is believed the 42-year-old will be seen on screen next week, as the show's auditions were filmed before his recent arrest for drink driving.
In the Snapchat videos, filmed backstage during the pair’s tour of the country, Ant looks happy and well. He is seen having a laugh and joke with the show’s cast and crew in the footage.
It is likely that Dec will front the show on his own once it gets past the auditions stage, whilst his on-screen partner recovers in rehab.
Last month, Ant McPartlin was charged with drink driving, following a road traffic accident in London.
Over the weekend, Dec presented the show alone. “It’s been a fun series. It’s been tinged with sadness,” he told the crowd after filming.
An audience member then shouted out “We miss Ant.”
To which Dec replied “Yes, we do [miss him]. Give a round of applause to Ant who’s back home.”
