Ant McPartlin Won’t Return To TV Until Doctors Give Him The Green Light, Leaving New Series Of  ‘I’m A Celebrity’ Up In The Air

'Nobody wants to see him do himself more harm than good by racing back too soon.'

Ant McPartlin’s TV return is in the hands of his doctors, as the star continues his recovery following his stay in rehab.

The TV presenter revealed that he was seeking treatment back in June for an addiction to prescription drugs.

It is still unknown if he will be ready to present ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ in November, as docs don’t want him to rush back into work too quickly.

He tweeted: “Have to say I’m overwhelmed by everyone’s love, support and well wishes today. Thank you one and all. I’m sending all my love back.”

Many of his showbiz pals also lent their support, with Piers Morgan tweeting: “Extraordinary interview. Welcome back mate — best of luck with your continued recovery.”

We also wish him a speedy and full recovery.
