Troubled Ant is going back into rehab and will be off the telly indefinitely after his arrest.

Following the arrest, Ant and Dec made the decision to cancel their hit show Saturday Night Takeaway this Saturday night, while it remains to be seen what happens with the last two episodes of the series.

Following Ant's latest vehicle crash, the TV star has confirmed that he is stepping away from his work commitments and going back into rehab. He returned to our screens in November alongside best friend, Declan Donnelly to host I'm A Celebrity...

After meeting as teenagers on the set of children's drama "Byker Grove", the duo have progressed through the world of pop as PJ and Duncan, into children's presenting with SMTV and have now reached the heights where it seems that whatever they touch turns to gold.

Holly and Phillip say they are "shocked and saddened" by Ant McPartlin drink driving incident on "This Morning". "I never would have thought he would do that [get divorced] for example, let alone this".

Ant has had a hard year after spending two months in a rehabilitation facility for an addiction to prescription painkillers last summer, following a knee operation.

A statement issued by the star's rep said: "Ant has chose to go back into treatment and step down from his current TV commitments".

The people who look after Ant say he's taking time off "for the forseeable future" and will get treatment.

"As such "Saturday Night Takeaway" will not be going ahead this Saturday".

In January, McPartlin confirmed that he and his wife Lisa were separating after 11 years of marriage. During Tuesday's Good Morning Britain, friend of the couple Piers Morgan has revealed that Lisa is having a "very tough time" as he discussed the horrific auto accident and the affect the incident is having on those closest to Ant.

The presenters were criticised by fans on Twitter on Monday for not speaking of McPartlin's arrest, despite it being covered on ITV's Good Morning Britain. "But we want to wish those shaken and upset by the collision a quick recovery and personally for Ant we hope he gets some time and space to return to full health". The pair seemed to be in fine form though, with another win for Best Presenters under their belts at the National Television Awards for the 17th year running.
