Ant is back: Emotional star reunited with Dec on Britain's Got Talent

Holly stood in for Ant on last year's I'm A Celebrity

Today was the first day of filming auditions for the new series in London, before the judges head to Manchester next month.

The presenters, both 43, who have been best friends since they were 13 and have been presenting together for 22 years, shared a joint snap from their vehicle (inset) while on their way to film the new series of Britain's Got Talent in London.

Dec welcomed him with a big hug, after Ant's year-long break form presenting.

Ant has been off work since crashing his vehicle while drunk in March a year ago.

The pair then introduced BGT judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Simon Cowell.

"The judges are back, the buzzers are back. and someone else is back".

GMB co-host Ben Shephard admitted Ant is "looking well", and her fellow presenter Susanna Reid joked he will still "clean up" at next week's National Television Awards, where Ant and Dec Donnelly are aiming to triumph in the Best Presenter category for an 18th consecutive year. I really don't. Jealousy in a weird way is good for you.

He told the audience: "I've missed you all".

Australian Open: Federer headed to 4th round

Taiwan stages live-fire military exercises after China threats
But Beijing considers it to be a wayward province and has never ruled out military force to bring it under control. "We reserve the option for all the necessary means".

He continued: "What a lovely welcome".

Of course, fans were over the moon and expressed their excitement to have the pair back on screens soon. "Shall we move on before I cry?"

Ant previous year announced he'd be taking time out from presenting work after his involvement in a collision in south London while he was driving under the influence.

He also commented on Ant McPartlin's return to host the series, following an absence on screen past year. Get Me Out Of Here! with Holly Willoughby instead of McPartlin. "I missed you all".

The presenter reunited with his long-time presenting partner Declan Donnelly on the first day of auditions for the ITV programme at the London Palladium. I mean even though Dec was brilliant, it still wasn't the same. It would be like me not being with David, I would be happy, but not happy.

He added: "So on behalf of all of us, welcome back, we're family".

The lads posted the snap of themselves in the vehicle on the way to the first day of Britain's Got Talent auditions to their joint Instagram account.
