Ant McPartlin has left rehab and fans are flooding social media with well-wishes

The star was seen around London at the weekend.

Ant McPartlin was spotted out walking his dog at the weekend after having spent a month in a treatment centre.

The TV host was captured playing with his dog in a London park and is said to have looked “brighter”.

The presenter has spent the last month in an intensive treatment centre after he admitted himself for addiction to alcohol and painkillers.

And the sighting of the star over the weekend has left fans feeling optimistic, as they flooded social media with well-wishes for Ant.

“Cannot explain how happy I am that Ant is out of rehab and looking healthy – I cried,” wrote one fan on Twitter.

“Whether he's finished treatment or not - so delighted to see Ant out and about,” posted another.

However, while Ant was seen strolling around London at the weekend, sources close to the star say he has not yet finished his treatment, with some reports suggesting he is to finish his treatment at home.

The source went on to say that it is still unclear how long the TV host will remain in treatment and when he will return to work.

The 42-year-old checked himself into the rehab facility after he pleaded guilty to drink-driving and was fined £86,000 and given a 20-month driving ban.

Ant was forced to pull out of numerous appearances and hosting duties in the wake of the accident.
