Ant McPartlin checked himself into rehab for his prescription drug and drink problems just a few weeks ago, and has received a whole host of messages of support from fans and celebrity pals.

But his BFF and on-screen other half Declan Donnelly apparently hasn't been to see him while he's been staying at the facility.

Despite the treatment seemingly going very well, it's been reported that a decision was made for Ant to work through his issues all by himself. This means no visitors, and it’s claimed even his wife Lisa hasn't been to see him.

According to The Sun, a source revealed: "Ant has had no visitors — not even Lisa or Dec.

"It was judged best that he battled through this on his own."

And while Ant has been able to take day trips out of the rehab facility, they added: "There is still a way to go, but he is making real progress."

Despite being unable to visit his pal, Dec has stood by Ant and revealed he wouldn't host the upcoming series of I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! with anyone else.

“Ant and Dec are a team with a huge emotional bond, they are like brothers and and Dec will only be hosting I’m A Celebrity with Ant by his side," a source told The Mirror.

“They’ve got months yet to sort things out and the hope is that Ant will bounce back with another hit series of I’m A Celebrity and they will move on from this chapter in their career.”

Isn’t Dec’s loyalty just totally ADORBZ?
