Ant McPartlin is returning to I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here after he missed the last series in the aftermath of his drink driving incident.

The TV host has reportedly rejoined his presenting partner Declan Donnelly to film some promotional material for the new season of the jungle show.

Ant and Dec, both 43, are believed to have filmed a funny sketch titled Two Men and a Boat, which shows them rowing towards Australia where the show is filmed, according to The Sun.

The skit is said to see them run into terrible weather and get lost, before they eventually make it Down Under to host the hit reality TV show.

Standard Online contacted representatives for McPartlin and ITV for further comment.

The trailer will mark McPartlin’s return to the ITV show after he took a hiatus from his presenting commitments following a drink driving incident in March 2018 and a subsequent stint in rehab.

He was replaced by This Morning’s Holly Willoughby 38, who joined Donnelly in the Australian jungle.

McPartlin also split from Lisa Armstrong, his wife of 11 years, at the start of last year. The pair were granted a “quickie” divorce in a 30-second hearing in October.

McPartlin has since struck up a relationship with his former PA Anne-Marie Corbett and spoke earlier this year of the beneficial impact his girlfriend has had on his lif

"Anne-Marie honestly is the fundamental reason for the great change in my life," he told The Sun on Sunday in January.

"She’s been my rock. She’s a beautiful soul. We’re very happy.

"I’m in the best place I’ve been in my life, to be honest with you. She’s the greatest support to me. She’s always been behind me and supported me and looked after me. She always has been there for me."
