Ant McPartlin set for TV BAFTA return

Share article:

Ant McPartlin will return to the TV BAFTAs on Sunday (12.05.19) - after missing last year's ceremony.

The 43-year-old TV presenter didn't attend the 2018 spectacle because he was taking time out of the spotlight due to a drink-driving conviction, leaving his sidekick Declan Donnelly to walk the red carpet alone, but he will be back at London's Royal Festival Hall this year.

Ant - who made this TV comeback co-hosting "Britain's Got Talent" alongside Dec this year - looks set to be joined by his regular co-host on the red carpet at this year's Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards as they go in search of more career honours.

The pair are up for two TV BAFTAs, for Entertainment Performance and Entertainment Programme, both for their show "Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway".

But Ant took some time out from the show last year as part of his break from the public eye, with Dec flying solo on the penultimate episode.
