Declan Donnelly is cheerful as they leave for Australia with wife Ali Astall and daughter Isla for the return of I & # 39; m A Celebrity
I & # 39; m A Celebrity returns to TV screens on November 17 on ITV and Declan Donnelly appeared excitedly as he prepared to fly to Australia on Monday.
With a big smile on his face, the 44-year-old who pushed his daughter Isla, 14 months, into her pram with wife Ali Astall, 40, was pictured while they all went to the plane.
The loving father seemed to fall in love with his little toddler when they were preparing for the long journey, no doubt excited that Ant McPartlin would participate in the show again.
So sweet: Declan Donnelly appeared in a good mood when he left for Australia with wife Ali Astall and daughter Isla, awaiting the return of I & # 39; m A Celebrity
Double act: I & # 39; m A Celebrity returns to TV screens on November 17 and December has his dear wife by his side
The outing comes after Dec admitted he thought he had permanently lost his # 31-year-old friend & # 39; when Ant was arrested last year for a conviction for drunk driving.
Speaking in their ITV documentary Ant & Dec & # 39; s DNA Journey, Dec said: & # 39; It has been a difficult few years and it has tested the band that we have shared since we were 13. & # 39;
Dec added: & # 39; I was incredibly angry at first, so angry. Disappointed that he never came to me and said, "I'm having trouble, I need you," because that's what I'd do if the shoe were on the other foot. And he never came to me and that hurt me a lot. & # 39;
A trade off: the outing comes after Dec admitted he thought he had lost his best friend of 31 forever & # 39; & # 39; when Ant was arrested last year for a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol
There for each other: Dec was seen struggling with the pram while pulling his weight with the parenting duties
Catching up on the goss: Dec was holding a newspaper and a friend was wearing the personalized & # 39; AD & # 39; Ali handbag
Help: Dec had a helping hand with the suitcases for his long journey through the country
A group effort: Dec entertained his lovely little girl while Ali and a friend tied her securely in her pram
The ITV documentary was stopped for two years, while Ant took a break to combat his addiction to alcohol and medicines. He admitted himself to rehabilitation for further treatment.
During this time, Dec admitted that he & # 39; filled with fear & # 39; was at the thought that he no longer had Ant by his side.
But it seems that every gap has been healed and although Dec was happy to have Holly Willoughby as a stand-in at the show last year, he is delighted with his BFF back.
