Ant McPartlin has revealed a brand new tattoo while out and about over the weekend.

The 42-year-old TV veteran showed off his new powerful inking during a date night with new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett on Saturday evening.

On his left wrist, is an Alcoholics Anonymous symbol which helps members to ‘stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.’

The popular host of Saturday Night Takeaway, Britain’s Got Talent and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! was involved in a collision with two other cars while driving his Mini in Richmond, London, on March 18.

Appearing at Kingston police station on March 21, after being interviewed under caution McPartlin was charged with drink-driving.

Over the weekend, Ant seemed back to his usual self, alongside best mate Declan Donnelley and his pregnant wife Ali Astall. He was also joined by Jonathan Wilkes and his wife Nikki, according to the Mirror.

Following the crash, McPartlin was charged with drink-driving, fined £86,000, and banned from driving for 20 months.

Appearing at Kingston police station on March 21, after being interviewed under caution McPartlin was charged with drink-driving.

It’s understood he was twice the legal limit during the incident which caused minor injuries resulting in a three-year-old girl being hospitalised.

Arrested at the scene of the accident after he failed to pass a breathalyser test, the Geordie TV star left rehab on April 26, following an intensive month of treatment.

A statement released by Ant’s publicist in the immediate aftermath of his crash, read:

Ant has decided to go back into treatment and step down from his current TV commitments.

He’s spoken with Dec and ITV today and asked for time off for the foreseeable future.

As such Saturday Night Takeaway will not be going ahead this Saturday.

His drink-driving conviction could have resulted in up to six months in prison, a driving ban of at least a year and an unlimited fine.

Hojol Uddin, Partner and Head of Motoring at UK law firm JMW Solicitors, one of the leading experts in motoring offences in England and Wales, spoke to UNILAD about the trial.

He said:

The fact that Ant has pleaded guilty at the first available opportunity and actively sought treatment prior to going to court will have been viewed favourably by the judge, with a reduction in the fine imposed.

He will also be eligible for a course to reduce his 20 month driving ban.

However, the fact that he was alcohol-dependent at the time of the offence could cause issues with the DVLA if he is to drive again in the future due to his medical fitness to drive.

It’s a possibility a medical test may be required before having his license returned to him after serving the disqualification imposed by the Court.

Glad to see Ant back up and running.
