The presenters, both 43, who have been best friends since they were 13 and have been presenting together for 22 years, shared a joint snap from their vehicle (inset) while on their way to film the new series of Britain's Got Talent in London.

He was introduced to the audience at the London Palladium by Declan Donnelly, who said: "We've got the judges back, the golden buzzer is back, and someone else is back".

Dec welcomed him with a big hug, after Ant's year-long break form presenting. What a great show to come back to.

They went on to create their singing act "PJ & Duncan" and by 1995 were hosting their own show, The Ant & Dec Show. Oh god, I'm really really emotional now.

Ant McPartlin is officially returning for Britain's Got Talent after taking a year off.

Last August, Ant said his recovery was going "very well" and that he was looking forward to getting back to work "in the New Year". "Make sure you look out for each other - we've missed having you around Ant, and hope you're feeling better in yourself now". "Shall we move on before I cry?"

While long-term friends Ant and Dec have spent time together away from the prying eyes of cameras, they've not appeared onscreen together since last April - when the last of the pre-recorded BGT 2018 auditions aired.

After Ant's return to the stage, Simon added: "Ant, welcome back". We missed you; it wasn't the same. "Can't wait to see you back on TV soon", posted a second.

The 59-year-old said: "Even though Dec was brilliant, it still wasn't the same".

McPartlin, 43, stepped down from presenting Saturday Night Takeaway following his arrest for drink-driving and returned to rehab.

He was later fined £86,000 and given a 20-month driving ban after pleading guilty to drink driving.
