Host of I'm A Celebrity and Britain's Got Talent Ant McPartlin is said to be recovering after being attacked in a pub last night. The 35-year-old - one half of presenting duo Ant & Dec - was punched as he watched a football match in a London pub, The Sun has reported today.
In a perhaps homophobic jibe, the thug shouted at Ant: "Where's your girlfriend?", referring to his co-host Declan Donnelly.
An eyewitness told the newspaper: "Ant didn't react and this bloke launched himself at him and punched him in the face. Ant reeled back and then a big fight broke out as his mates came to help him. Other people jumped in and held back the other guy.
"The bloke was thrown out but when Ant left later, he was waiting for him. There was another lot of shouting and then Ant walked off."
He added: "It was all totally unprovoked."
The star's spokesman last night confirmed Ant was hit but wouldn't be taking the matter any further.
