Ant and Dec

Ant McPartlin is reportedly set move out of his London pad famously situated next door to his on-screen partner Dec Donnelly. Ant is reportedly planning to renovate a £5 million London mansion as he continues on his road to recover following a second stint in rehab for prescription drug and alcohol addiction.

The new project - though to be part of the presenter's recovery - would mean Ant moving out of his current London home, which is famously next door to his co-presenter Dec Donnelly's family home.

Rather than being able to quickly pop next door to spend time with each other, the double act will reportedly be a half-hour's drive away from one another when Ant relocates to South West London to renovate the new property.

According to MailOnline, Ant is "very excited" about the new house. A source revealed that the next couple of months will be "difficult for him, given he’s not in Australia with Dec for I'm A Celebrity."
