Alesha Dixon says things are "back to normal" since Ant McPartlin returned to "Britain's Got Talent".

The 43-year-old TV presenter took a year off work to focus on his sobriety after he was arrested for drink-driving last year and although his presenting partner Declan Donnelly was praised for carrying on solo, Alesha said the "BGT" team are happy to have Ant back.

She told the Daily Mirror: "It was a lovely day because the family were back together, we were reunited.

"The energy was good, there was a lot of love in the room and of course we all missed him tremendously so it was like things were back to normal.

"We had the most incredible series so you're in for a treat. We're very lucky, the six of us have a great working­ ­relationship.

"It has been lovely to work together for so many years. When you put that missing piece of the puzzle back it makes everything brilliant."

Meanwhile, Ant recently revealed he was "so emotional" on his first day back on "Britain's Got Talent" because he didn't expect such "goodwill and love" from fans.

He said: "Wow, it was so emotional for me.

"I don't think either of us were quite prepared for that. We didn't expect that level of goodwill and love. It was a very emotional day for me."

The new series of "Britain's Got Talent" kicks off on Saturday (06.04.19), and in the first episode Ant was touched when a young contestant told him she had "missed" him.

She jumped into his arms and whispered: "I've missed you."

Hugging the little girl, Ant told her: "I missed you, too."

Ant was arrested in May 2018 and was later fined £86,000 and given a 20-month driving ban after pleading guilty to drink-driving.

He then took time out from his presenting partnership with Dec to focus on getting help to overcome his demons.
