Ant McPartlin has spoken out about having a problem with substance abuse, alcohol, and prescription drugs in a candid interview.

The 41-year-old reveals that he broke down when he admitted his problems to his wife Lisa and colleague Declan Donnelly.

The Britain’s Got Talent presenter says that he wanted to speak out about his substance abuse in order to encourage others who may have a problem to seek help.

Anthony last night checked into a rehab clinic, where he will stay for two months.

He told The Sun, “The first step is to admit to yourself you need help.

“I feel like I have let a lot of people down and for that I am truly sorry.

“I want to thank my wife, family and closest friends for helping me through this really difficult time.

“I’ve spoken out because I think it’s important that people ask for help if they’re going through a rough time and get the proper treatment to help their recovery.”
