2018-Mar-20 | By News Admin

Presenter Ant McPartlin has stepped down from his TV roles following his arrest on suspicion of drink driving.

His publicist said McPartlin, who spent time in rehab last year, was taking time off "for the foreseeable future" and would have further treatment.

ITV's Saturday Night Takeaway will not air this weekend and the final two episodes, scheduled for 31 March and 7 April, won't feature McPartlin.

The star was involved in a collision in south-west London on Sunday.

His decision to step down comes following talks with his presenting partner Declan Donnelly and with ITV.
