The Britain's Got Talent host and the other half to Ant and Dec has come to the end of his rehab stay, to overcome an addiction to prescription drugs and an ongoing battle with alcohol and substance abuse.

Ant McPartlin has thanked Prince Harry for writing to him to thank the star for speaking out on his battles with depression and addiction. "The doctors told me, "You could have killed yourself", he said.

The star explained how he was once ended up in hospital at 5am following a binge on pills.

He admitted that as soon as he walked in the doors he felt relief because the drugs "didn't have control over me any more". He pleaded with his wife, make-up artist Lisa Armstrong, to take him to hospital after a night bingeing on tramadol, morphine and alcohol.

He continued: "I was insane. It was to the point of hearing things, seeing things in the garden and still the pain was getting worse". Ant started taking painkiller medication following a knee operation in 2015.

"The great thing is I spoke to a lot of the medical team and I'm not an alcoholic".

Nuveen Senior Income Fund (NSL) Declares Monthly Dividend of $0.04
Nuveen Credit Strategies Income Fund has decreased its dividend by an average of 6.3% annually over the last three years. Diversified Real Asset Income Fund of Beneficial Interest has a 12 month low of $15.00 and a 12 month high of $18.30.

However for the first time in three years he is now clean of all drugs, and has lost a stone since being admitted into rehab in June. "As a general rule, anything that is opium-based can be addictive".

"When I first went in I was so bad I was just happy to have someone looking after us". But then we found my pain had been caused by a hole in my knee bone - it was shot. "I was just drinking too much to numb the pain", he confirmed.

"I knew there was a dance routine involved".

He admits despite warnings on the packet he "didn't take them as seriously as I should have".

With the couple's inability to conceive a contributing factor to his depression, Ant went on to admit the pair had "struggled" in their marriage over the last few years - but that Lisa has been helping him every step of the way. Lisa and Dec gave me a bit of a send-off from mine.

It is expected that McPartlin will return to screens in November, when he will host the next installment of I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.
