TV presenter Ant McPartlin has been charged with drink driving following a crash in south-west London.

Ant was arrested approx 4pm on Sunday after his Mini was involved in a car crash in South West London.

Ant has now been charged with drink-driving on Wednesday afternoon following his arrest on Sunday, and will appear at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on April 4, Metropolitan Police confirms.

Following crisis talks with ITV, Saturday Night Takeaway has been cancelled this Saturday (March 24), and Ant is heading back to rehab.

Declan Donnelly has broken his silence following Ant’s arrest earlier this week, and has confirmed the last two shows of Saturday Night Takeaway will continue as they ‘owe it to the audience to complete the series’.

Dec has since released the following statement: “Whilst I never thought i’d be in this position, after much discussion and careful consideration we’ve decided that the remaining two shows of this series of Saturday Night Takeaway will go ahead.

“We made a promise to take hundreds of deserving winners to Florida to watch the series finale, and we will honour that.”

Dec added: “Everyone at ITV and the Takwaway team feels we owe it to the audience to complete the series. Dec x”
