Ant McPartlin made a rare appearance with his wife Anne Marie Corbett as they left the final of Britain’s Got Talent together at the Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday night.
The Geordie presenter, 47, was in hysterics as he lurched into the car with Anne Marie’s daughter Poppy, where they wore winner Viggo Venn’s now iconic high vis jacket on their heads.
The Norwegian comedian had worn the outfit on stage when he was crowned winner, taking home the £250,000 prize and a spot on the bill for the Royal Variety Performance.
Anne-Marie is the mother of two daughters, Poppy and Daisy, who she shares with her ex-husband Scott Corbett.
She also looked cheerful as she sat next to him and laughed at their funny antics.

Comedian Viggo was crowned the winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2023 on Sunday night.
Dancer Lilliana Clifton, 13, and 14-year-old magician Cillian O’Connor placed second and third respectively, but missed out on the title.
Viggo took home the £250,000 prize and a spot on the bill at the Royal Variety Performance.
However, spectators appeared to berate Viggo, while social media erupted when viewers claimed the talent show had been resolved.
After technical difficulties and a string of interruptions during Saturday night’s Britain’s Got Talent semi-final, ITV could be forgiven for crossing fingers and toes as the grand final of their long-running flagship kicked off on Sunday night.
Viggo, 33, not only donned his now-iconic hi-vis vest, but forced head judge Simon Cowell to wear a matching one when rose petals were thrown over the pair

Judge Alesha Dixon told him, “You captivated the nation. They love you.”
Bruno Tonioli added, “I think your physical comedy is world class, you’ve created one of the most memorable characters since Mr Bean.”
And Simon was full of praise for the prankster, telling him, “At least you didn’t make me look stupid tonight. I’ve never met an act like you in my life, I admit it, I really love you now.’
Viggo called back to his original audition at the end of his performance, taking off his jacket for Daft Punk’s “One More Time” to reveal another hi-vis vest.
And when asked why he has so many coats, he told co-host Declan Donnelly, “I wear so much high-vis because it’s very cold in Norway.”
Before the show aired, Simon explained how he hoped the program would help contestants build better lives for themselves.
Laughter: Poppy was having a great time pulling off a series of animated facial expressions in the back of the car

He said, “I think you have two things: you want to make a show that people will hopefully enjoy watching. And second, you want to give whoever it is that chance, hopefully, so that things get better in their lives after they audition. I think where things have changed a lot from where we first started, it’s always been about the end price.”
While many took to social media to praise Viggo for his win, some criticized him online, with one penning: ‘Nothing irks me more than when complete JOKE ACT wins a match’
Another wrote: ‘This man wore a hi-vis to a talent show and got away with £250,000. Fair game’.
A third added: ‘The public is rightly captivated. Viggo Venn has zero talent. I hate the British public’.
