This year sees the return of Dec's best friend Ant McPartlin on the show after Holly Willoughby filled in for him last year as he battled his own personal demons.

The pair recently posted a snap of themselves to their Instagram account as they prepare to host the latest series of the show.  

The outing comes after Dec admitted that he thought he had 'lost' his best friend of 31 years for good when Ant was arrested for a drink-driving conviction last year.

Speaking in their ITV documentary Ant & Dec’s DNA Journey, Dec said: 'It has been a tough couple of years and it has tested the bond we have shared since we were 13.'

Dec added: 'I was incredibly angry at the start, so angry. Disappointed that he didn't ever come to me and say "I am struggling, I need you," because that is what I would do if the shoe was on the other foot. And he never came to me and that hurt me a lot.'

The ITV documentary was halted for two years while Ant took a break from the spotlight to battle his addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs. He admitted himself to rehab for further treatment. 

During this time, Dec admitted he was 'filled with fear' at the thought of no longer having Ant by his side.
