Ant McPartlin’s Personal Life
McPartlin married make-up artist Lisa Armstrong on July 22, 2006, at Cliveden, a country house hotel in Buckinghamshire. They had been together for a long time. The couple was married for 11 years before they said they were getting a divorce on January 15, 2018.
McPartlin was a strong supporter of the Labour Party until the 2010 election, when he switched to voting for the Conservatives. He told The Guardian newspaper in February 2013 that it would be hard for him to vote for either political party in the future.
In 2015, McPartlin went to the hospital for knee surgery. After the surgery went wrong, he was told to take painkillers to deal with the pain. Over the next two years, he slowly became dependent on the drugs (one of which was the opioid OxyContin) and alcohol, which he used even before going on TV.
In June 2017, he checked himself into rehab to get help for his addiction. Two months later, he was released.
On March 18, 2018, McPartlin was in a car accident in London. After the accident, he was arrested on suspicion of driving while drunk. The next day, on March 19, he met with Dec and ITV and told them he would stop presenting so he could go back to rehab for more help. On April 16, 2018, he was questioned behind closed doors and then charged with drunk driving. The next month, McPartlin pleaded guilty to the crime at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court. He was banned from driving for 20 months and fined £86,000, which was the most money ever given for drunk driving in Britain. He had been told not to drive for 30 days and given a fine of £350 for going 204 km/h (127 mph) on the A1(M) motorway.
McPartlin announced in August 2018 that he would be taking a break from hosting TV shows until 2019. He said, “My recovery is going very well, and after talking to Dec and ITV, I’ve decided to take the rest of the year off.”

In January 2019, McPartlin went back to work on TV with Donnelly at the auditions for Britain’s Got Talent.
At St. Michael’s Church in Heckfield, Hampshire, on August 7, 2021, McPartlin married Anne-Marie Corbett, who had been his assistant. Since 2018, they had been seeing each other.
Ant McPartlin Professional Life
McPartlin’s first TV appearance was on the children’s workshop show Why Don’t You?, but he got his big break when he became famous for playing PJ in the CBBC show Byker Grove, which was a show for kids. During his time on the show, he met Declan Donnelly for the first time. Declan was cast as Duncan. The two became close friends on the show, both socially and professionally. The men played their characters until 1993, when they left the show. During their time together, the two made several hit records under the name “PJ & Duncan AKA.” One of these was the song “Tonight I’m Free,” which was played on Byker Grove.
From that point on, McPartlin and Donnelly worked together on TV as Ant & Dec, a pair of hosts. At first, they kept working in children’s television with the Saturday morning hit SMTV Live. Later, they moved on to gameshows like Friends Like These, PokerFace, and Push the Button, talent shows like Pop Idol and Britain’s Got Talent, and entertainment shows like I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. The two of them kept working as actors. They were in a tribute to The Likely Lads called “No Hiding Place,” which was a remake of an episode from the show’s sequel, Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?  McPartlin and Donnelly were both in the movie Alien Autopsy, which came out in 2006.
In 2007, it was found that two shows he hosted with Declan Donnelly, Ant & Dec’s Gameshow Marathon and Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, had scammed viewers who called in. Their own production company made the second one.
Ant & Dec got a lot of attention around the world in April 2009 when, as backstage commentators for Britain’s Got Talent, they talked to contestant Susan Boyle. Boyle’s audition became the most-watched YouTube video of the year, and her album topped the charts in dozens of countries.
