Ant was arrested approx 4pm on Sunday after his Mini was involved in a auto crash in South West London.

The BBC reports that he was released under investigation on Monday.

A child passenger in one of the cars was taken to hospital for a check-up as a precaution, the Metropolitan Police said.

Within a minute, troubled Ant crashed into a green mini carrying a mum and her young daughter, and maroon BMW before failing a breath test at the scene on Sunday at around 4pm.

It's been revealed that Saturday Night Takeaway will be cancelled for the near future as Ant McPartlin heads back to rehab following his drink drive arrest.

A rep for Ant and Dec told MailOnline: 'Ant has made a decision to go back into treatment and step down from his current TV commitments.

Obviously not a blanket-ITV move, Lorraine had earlier mentioned her friend Ant, as she then-insisted he would be on Saturday night's instalment on Saturday Night Takeaway - that was, of course, before it was confirmed the show would not be airing this weekend.

A spokesman for the channel said: "We very much hope that he gets the help that he needs".

Exclusive video footage obtained by The Sun showed Ant being put into a police auto following the smash outside a disused brewery. Officers, London ambulance service and London fire brigade attended, with a number of people being treated at the scene for minor injuries.

He returned to screens with Declan Donnelly in November for I'm A Celebrity. She was trying to get him to calm down.

This latest update comes after a hard year for Ant, who spent two months in a rehabilitation facility last summer, where he was treated for an addiction to prescription painkillers.

'Eventually she got him in the police auto.

The decision follows the TV presenter's arrest on suspicion of drink driving in London yesterday, Sunday March 18.

The star has also been working on Britain's Got Talent all while going through a divorce with wife of ten years Lisa Armstrong.
