Ant McPartlin And Declan Donnelly Spotted Together For The First Time In Months
Comedy duo Ant McPartlin And Declan Donnelly have been spotted together for the first time since Ant was admitted into rehab following a drink drive charge after a car crash he was involved in.
Ant stepped back from all of his TV commitments after he pleaded guilty in court and was handed an £86,000 fine.
But it looks like the pair are back together, maybe not in the entertainment sense, but in a hotel garden in south London.
The fan in the picture, Christin Maschmann, is a vlogger at NiceandSunny. She wrote on Instagram: "Pleasure to randomly bump into @antanddecofficial today! Lovely guys!"
She told the Mirror Online that the pair were 'super nice and in a good mood'.
Ant left his co-presenter to host Britain's Got Talent alone for the new season. And the show received a BAFTA on Sunday where Dec appeared with his wife, Ali Astall, who is pregnant with their first child.

He stayed silent and in the background as he joined the cast on stage to accept the award.
Ant had stepped out of the limelight following a long addiction battle to painkillers. He checked into rehab three days after he was charged with drink-driving following a three-car smash on March 18 earlier this year in South West London.
The 42-year-old Saturday Night Takeaway star was heading back from a dog walk with his mum when he lost control of his Mini at a roundabout.
The court received a police charge sheet which stated that the TV personality "drove a motor vehicle, namely a Black Mini... after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in [his] breath, namely 75 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, exceeded the prescribed limit."
The presenter was fined £86,000 and banned from driving for 20 months after pleading guilty at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on April 16. The fine was the biggest ever in the UK.
It is not know how long he will continue seeking professional help for, however, he has cancelled all work on BGT and I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here for the 'foreseeable future'.
We watched as his long-standing TV partner, Dec, hosted their show Saturday Night Takeaway solo for the first time as it was coming to a close. He was met with a unanimously positive audience response.
Dec said: "I've got twice the amount of work to do, so we're going to crack on" in a subtle reference to McPartlin's return to rehab, before moving on quickly to explain what the evening's show had in store.
