TV presenter Ant McPartlin has been charged with drink-driving after his arrest on Sunday, and will appear in court next month.

A police statement confirmed he had been charged after a road traffic collision in Lower Richmond Road in south-west London.

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

The TV star was pictured leaving his rented house in Chiswick with his manager and a driver yesterday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Declan Donnelly will host 'Saturday Night Takeaway' without his partner when the show returns a week on Saturday.

"We can confirm that 'Saturday Night Takeaway', presented by Declan Donnelly, will return on March 31," said an ITV spokesman.

McPartlin was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving on Sunday and has taken a step back from his TV work in order to return to rehab.
