Ant McPartlin's grovelling apology in full as he blames marriage breakdown for drink driving - Break

Ant McPartlin has blamed his drink-driving smash on his marriage breakdown after pleading guilty to the offence in court.The Britain’s Got Talent host issued a grovelling apology for his boozed-up actions through his legal team, telling the district judge he was struggling with his split from estranged wife Lisa Armstrong.The couple, who were married for 11 years, separated in January 2018 months after Ant came out of rehab for the first time.In a statement to police, Ant said: “I’m very sorry I did this.I’m ashamed and mortified that this happened.” His barrister Liam Walker told the court that the cause of the incident was: “A brief relapse unbeknownst to his passenger.” He added: “Anthony McPartlin is sorry.He is doing everything he can so this never happens again.He hopes that in time he can make himself better and he might be forgiven by all the people he feels he has let down so terribly.” Mr Walker said his client has struggled to come to terms with the break up of his marriage and has been getting treatment for “alcohol and emotional issues”.He added that Ant’s mother Christine Woodhall was in the car with him at the time of the crash on March 18.Christine moved into Ant’s rental property in Chiswick, west London, after he moved out of the nearby marital home he shared with Lisa.She wasn’t spotted outside Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court when Ant arrived this afternoon, nor was his telly partner Declan Donnelly.It’s expected that Ant will be sentenced today after issuing his guilty plea within two minutes of the start of the hearing.He could face a driving ban, an unlimited fine or even time in jail if the district judge chooses to throw the book at him.His estranged wife Lisa, who works as a makeup artist on shows including BGT and Strictly Come Dancing, is yet to break her silence.
