British entertainment hit Saturday Night Takeaway will not return to screens until 2020 after host Ant McPartlin revealed that he is taking the rest of the year to deal with personal issues.

McPartlin will also step aside from hosting I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here this November, which means that co-host Declan Donnelly will present the jungle format without his presenting partner.

This comes after McPartlin was involved in a DUI and went to rehab earlier this year.
