Former television presenter Ant McPartlin has been fined £86,000 (€99,500) and banned from driving for 20 months after admitting driving while having more than twice the legal alcohol limit in his system. I am ashamed and mortified that this happened.

Alison was part of the media circus waiting for Ant to deliver a statement after his hearing, in which he pleaded guilty to driving with 75 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.

His defence barrister Liam Walker also said 42-year-old Ant had suffered a "brief relapse" - which his mum had no idea about - and he "hopes he can be forgiven by the many people he has let down".
