The meeting marks a new step back in the busy production schedule from which Ant withdrew to focus on his personal problems in 2018.

His presentation duties were originally suspended by ITV after he was arrested for driving under the influence near his home in London in March.

The presenter collided with a green Mini and a maroon BMW after his own Mimi hit the wrong side of the road.

Again on their way to their joint Twitter account, they wrote: & # 39; The takeaway meals for Ant and Dec for Saturday and December are back and we would love to hear from YOU!

& # 39; Do you want to nominate yourself, a friend or family member to participate in the biggest show on television? Do you know someone who loves a surprise on live TV? Applications for the 2020 series are now open. & # 39;

The friendship of the duo is well underway, despite last year's struggle when Ant was confronted with addiction and was beaten with a driving ban and work interruption.

In the midst of misery, Dec confessed that he debated going solo.

He said: & # 39; I would lie if I said the thought had not occurred to me. Of course I thought about it. Ant left and he had a lot of work to do on himself …

& # 39; He had to think a lot. Me too. I thought of every possibility and every permutation …

& # 39; Ultimately, the most important thing that I wanted to make happen was that Ant came back and that he was healthy and happy, and that we had put our relationship back on track and we moved on. That is what makes me happiest, working together & # 39 ;.
