Declan Donnelly and Ali Astall 'expecting first child'

Happier times The make-up artist's estranged husband Ant Mc Partlin was charged with drink driving this week and has gone back to rehab

An ITV spokesman has said: "We can confirm that Saturday Night Takeaway, presented by Declan Donnelly, will return to ITV on March 31, and the series finale will be taking place at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida a week later".

Reports suggest that Ali became pregnant in December, shortly after Dec finished up his I'm A Celeb filming stint in Australia.

Their announcement follows the news that both Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly were dropped over an advertising campaign by auto company Suzuki over McPartlin's drink-driving charge.

And if the rumours are to be believed, the pregnancy is coming at an extremely busy time for 42-year-old Dec and his wife, 40, with the television host now without the support of his best friend and co-star Ant McPartlin.

Dec and Ali have been married since 2014 and tied the knot at St Michael's Roman Catholic Church in Elswick with Ant as his best man.

Dec and Ali are both absolutely delighted to be expecting, especially as they have been trying for some time'.

Auto firm Suzuki has announced it will axe both Ant and Dec from their telly ads after scrapping their £20milion deal.

ITV have responded to claims Ant and Dec will be replaced on I'm A Celebrity 2018.

Dec will front the rest of the current series of "Saturday Night Takeaway" without him, and is also tipped to present the "Britain's Got Talent" live shows by himself.

One said: "OMG! I am over the moon to hear this!"

He told The Sun newspaper: 'Ant looked in a right state and was acting argumentatively toward a policewoman. "I couldn't believe it when I read this @antanddec". He was not making it easy for her and he seemed to be trying to wriggle out of her clutches.

It is thought Ant veered into the wrong lane after coming round a sharp bend, hitting a green Mini before crashing into a BMW X5.

Explaining the issue in terms of his friendship with Dec, Ant revealed: 'There's a rumour that we do everything together and I'm holding off having kids till Dec finds himself Mrs Right.
