Ant McPartlin Reveals He Nearly DIED From Shocking Secret Addiction

Ant McPartlin has revealed he almost died from his secret addiction to super-strength painkillers as he opened up for the first time since checking into rehab. The I’m A Celebrity presenter checked himself into rehab back in June after a tearful confession to his wife Lisa Armstrong and TV partner Dec about his dependency on prescription drugs and alcohol.

He revealed how he begged Lisa to call him an ambulance after an “insane” pills binge which saw him rushed to hospital at 5am. Multi-millionaire Ant, 41, one of the biggest names in telly, wept as he ­revealed the crisis to his wife Lisa and co-star Dec, also 41. The shock revelation threatened to overturn Ant’s clean-cut reputation and threw his TV career in jeopardy.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday , Ant said: “I was at the point where anything — prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs — I would take. And take them with alcohol, which is ridiculous. The doctors told me, ‘You could have killed yourself’. ” Speaking before he entered rehab , he said: said: “The first step is to admit to yourself you need help. I’ve let people down. I’m truly sorry.”
