Ant McPartlin leaves rehab, discusses two-year pain killer addiction

McPartlin, half of presenting duo Ant and Dec with childhood friend Declan Donnolley, was admitted to rehab in June after a knee operation left him reliant on a cocktail of painkillers.

"The first step is to admit to yourself you need help", he said.

Earlier this year, Ant McPartlin checked into rehab, explaining how a knee injury two years ago led him to become addicted to prescription pain medication.

And in one terrifying ordeal he was rushed to hospital by ambulance at 5am after a binge. And I drank with them, which was stupid and very reckless. It sends you insane.

He continued of his wife: 'All I can say at the moment is that she's been unbelievable - fantastic throughout'.

After two months in rehab, luckily the Saturday Night Takeaway star is now clean of all drugs other than paracetamol for the first time in three years - and has also lost a stone after his time in the facility. "It was to the point of hearing things, seeing things in the garden and still the pain was getting worse", he told The Sun. I think he'll be fine.

His alcohol consumption had also increased and he admitted that he had clinical depression and would sometimes be unable to get out of bed. I took a load of stuff that day just to get through the day.

The star said he was "depressed through the whole thing" because he was in pain and immobile.

"The boys have hosted every series of I'm A Celebrity and everyone expects to see them back in five months time", the insider said.

Soon enough, the celebrity was visiting multiple independent private doctors to get more tramadol prescribed: "From the old lady who lies about her Valium supply to someone like me who was necking tramadol to the point of psychosis, in the end it's the same thing".

'I'm relieved he's receiving the help he needs, we just need him better'.
