Ant McPartlin, one half of the famous double act Ant and Dec, was over double the drink drive limit, Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court heard.

In a letter read out in court he said he was “ashamed and mortified” as he pleaded guilty to drink driving.

He was charged following a collision with two other cars while driving in Richmond, London, on 18 March.

The driver of a BMW, who was hit by McPartlin’s car, said the TV presenter’s car came round the corner like “a rocket”.

In a witness statement, the driver of one of the cars said he and his wife “could have died as a result of Mr McPartlin’s reckless driving”.

His barrister Liam Walker said McPartlin has expressed both his “sorrow and regret” and knows the consequences could have been much worse.

The Metropolitan Police previously confirmed that a number of individuals were treated at the scene for minor injuries, and a child passenger from one of the cars was taken to hospital to be checked as a precaution.

After he was charged, his publicist confirmed the presenter was taking time off from his TV commitments and seeking medical treatment for his drinking problem.
