Ant McPartlin has been a familiar face on our telly for over two decades, has always kept his family life under wraps despite his high-profile career alongside co-star Declan Donnelly. The 48 year old's personal life made headlines in 2018 due to his divorce from Lisa Armstrong and a drink-driving arrest.

This marked the first time his family was thrust into the limelight as they rallied around him. Among those offering support were Ant's sisters Sahra and Emma.

The siblings are understood to share a close bond, with old photos showing them enjoying days out together. Sarha Nigrelli, Ant's sister who is believed to be in her mid-40s, is known to have a tight-knit relationship with the Britain's Got Talent star.

They've been snapped together numerous times over the years, with Ant even joining Sarha and her family on trips. A 2018 photo shows Ant with Sarha, her husband Andy and their kids, Ethan and Ava, enjoying a day by a lake. The group don life vests, presumably preparing for a boat ride, reports OK!.

In the past, Sarha was often seen behind the scenes of ITV shows, supporting her big brother. She and her husband were also present at Ant and Dec's OBE investiture in January 2017.

Ant's younger sister, Emma, generally keeps a low profile. Yet, past photos reveal the siblings enjoying nights out together, often accompanied by Ant's ex-wife, Lisa Armstrong

Emma used to share pictures with her brother on her now-inactive Twitter account. She would frequently retweet posts lauding her brother and his work, as well as images from his wedding to his current wife, Anne-Marie Corbett.

Ant also has a brother named Robert, about whom little is known. Robert's wife, Sally Ann Thomson, tragically passed away at 29 from a rare form of ovarian cancer in 2013.

Both Sally Ann and Robert were present at Ant's wedding to Lisa in 2006. Recently, Ant's family has grown, as the television presenter welcomed his first child, a son named Wilder, with wife Anne-Marie in May 2024.

The couple tied the knot in 2021, and Ant is also a stepfather to Anne-Marie's two daughters from a previous relationship.
