Ant McPartlin reveals how painkiller addiction 'nearly killed him'

Rex
It's still unknown if Ant will return to host this year's'I'm A Celebrity with his presenting partner Declan Donnelly

Ant McPartlin is hoping to return to the small screen hosting I'm A Celebrity.

"It was decided I'd taken enough tramadol - they knew I had a problem".

The presenter has said that he hopes to be back in time for I'm A Celeb, which starts in November, but it will be down to the decision of the doctors whether or not he will be fit to host the show.

In an interview with The Sun on Sunday upon leaving rehab, he admitted to seeking prescriptions from several different private doctors at once, causing him to "neck tramadol to the point of psychosis".

After two months in rehab, Ant has now finished his treatment and is clean of all drugs except paracetamol.

"I want to thank my wife, family and closest friends for helping me through this really hard time", he continued", he said. Leitrim, also said that his addiction to painkillers started when he sustained a serious injury to his knee while Irish dancing.

"I would go for it first because it would make the pain disappear and kind of numb it".

"Have to say I'm overwhelmed by everyone's love, support and well wishes today", he told his 6.65million followers, tweeting from the official account he shares with partner Declan Donnelly.

"I was insane. It sends you crazy".

McPartlin said he was initially prescribed "normal stuff" such as co-codamol and codeine, but soon needed "opium-based" painkillers.

"There was a point on Saturday Night Takeaway past year when we performed with Take That". "You just think you know best - I'm in more pain, I'll just whack another one down". We had an hour's conversation then I packed my bag and I went.

The fracture then turned into a 2cm hole in the bone, which meant he was in constant pain while his leg was in a brace.

Ant also revealed he was banned from contacting Lisa in the first few weeks of rehab.

"The great thing is I spoke to a lot of the medical team and I'm not an alcoholic".

"I'm going to have to be careful with anything I take in the future". After this year's Britain's Got Talent final he had the second op, which left him "just done", he said.

"That's something I need to be conscious of and aware of for the rest of my life". That's what they tell you, 'You're still in recovery'. "I'm still in pain but managing it a lot better".
