TV favourite Ant McPartlin has shared an emotional message with his fans following a stay in rehab for a painkiller addition.
Ant, who entered rehab back in July, got addicted to painkillers after undergoing a number of knee operations over the last few years.
The 41-year-old has now sent a thank you message to his fans on Twitter which read, ‘Have to say I’m overwhelmed by everyone’s love, support and well wishes today. Thank you one and all. I’m sending all my love back. A xxx’
When the news broke that Ant had entered rehab to confront his demons earlier in the year, his celebrity friends were quick to show their support for the lovable Geordie boy. Ant is now clean of all prescription painkillers and is working with his doctors to regain full fitness.
It’s not clear when Ant will return to TV work, but fans are hoping to see his bubbly personality on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here later in the year.
