ITV said its Saturday Night Takeaway will not air this weekend following the arrest of presenter Ant McPartlin

Mr McPartlin was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving after a collision involving three vehicles in south-west London.

A number of people were treated for minor injuries.

Police said a 42-year-old man was arrested at the scene after failing a roadside breathalyser test.

He was taken to a south London police station for questioning before being released under investigation.

McPartlin, who presents the popular light entertainment show with long-term screen partner Declan Donnelly, will seek rehab after his drink drive arrest, ITV has confirmed.

An ITV spokesman said: “ITV has taken a joint decision with Ant and Dec’s team not to broadcast Saturday Night Takeaway this weekend.

“We will be reviewing options for the last two episodes of the series (March 31 and April 7) which would not feature Ant who is taking time off to seek treatment.”

McPartlin confirmed in January that he was divorcing his wife of 11 years, Lisa Armstrong.
