He’s just completed an eight-week stint in rehab, but TV presenter Ant McPartlin could be facing a whole new battle to save his marriage. When news first broke that Ant had checked himself into rehab for a long-running addiction to prescription painkillers the nation was shocked. Since then, the I’m A Celebrity presenter has admitted to regularly ‘necking’ a cocktail of pills to the point of psychosis. The star agreed to check into an exclusive Central London clinic in a bid to help him kick his life-threatening habit.
Reports suggest that the consequences of Ant’s addiction are still wreaking havoc on his relationship with wife Lisa. The pair have hardly have seen each other during Ant’s eight-week stint in rehab due to strict visitation rules put in place by the clinic. Lisa has been noticeably absent. Rather than staying at home with her husband, Lisa has been working long hours as a make-up artist on the set of Strictly Come Dancing ahead of the new series.
There were rumours of trouble in the relationship before Ant went into rehab. The star himself admitted they were struggling to start a family together. “I would say it’s a very private matter. We’ve struggled. Like a lot of couples do. It’s very personal.”
