Ant McPartlin is ‘doing well’ after his first full week in rehab for drink and drug addictions.
Ant McPartlin checked into rehab a week ago after confessing to his wife and co-host Dec he has a drink and drugs problem.
The multi-millionaire and TV presenter Anthony McPartlin has confessed he has problems with ‘substance abuse, prescription drugs and booze’ and sent himself to rehab to overcome the addiction.
Friends of Ant’s have said the telly presenter is “drawing strength” from the support from colleagues and millions of fans, The Mirror reports.
Ant revealed to The Sun before heading into rehab: “The first step is to admit to yourself you need help.
“I’ve let people down. I’m truly sorry.
“I feel like I have let a lot of people down and for that I’m truly sorry.
“I want to thank my wife, family and closest friends through this really difficult time.
He added to paper: “I have spoken out because I think it is important that people ask for help if they are going through a rough time and get the proper treatment to help their recovery.”
ITV bosses have told Ant he can take as long as he needs to recover – even if he misses the new series of I’m A Celebrity which airs in November.
Ant is expected to stay at least two months in a clinic receiving help.
Ant and Dec together earned a total of £29.5million in the past 12 months.
