Ant and Dec have been a famous comedy duo for several years now. They are best known for their work with "Britain's Got Talent," "I'm a Celebrity," and their very own show "Saturday Night Takeaway." Ant And Dec first met when they were 13-years-old, and fans have followed the hilarious duo as they set out into the world of show business.

What led to his addiction?

Ant admitted that he had been depressed about not being able to conceive a child with wife, Lisa.

Consequently, this started him down a road in which he heavily relied on alcohol and drugs. Ant also relied on the substances as a result of suffering from chronic pain. He had an operation to fix his knee and cartilage and since then has suffered from crippling pain.

Ant has willingly signed up for rehab admitting that the first step in this process was accepting that he needed help. According to a report by The Sun, Ant will not be allowed to have access to his phone or to have visitors during his time in the rehab facility.

This, of course, means that he will be unreachable for the two-month stint and fans have been commending him for taking the steps he needs to recover

What was Declan Donnelly's reaction?

Dec was shocked when his best friend revealed his struggles with addiction. Ant sat down with his wife, Lisa Armstrong, and long-time friend and co-worker Dec, and tearfully explained the demons he was fighting. Dec had been concerned about his friend for some time but had no idea about the true extent of his suffering.

He was shocked at Ant's announcement but is determined to help his friend through this difficult time in his life.

The fact that Ant has come clean about his addiction is a huge step and will hopefully mean a full recovery for the TV presenter. Dec also released a statement on Twitter thanking fans for their support in what is a tough time. There has been a massive reaction from fans, friends, and family who have expressed their love for the TV favorite.

Many of the fans have reached out over social media to share their kind words.

Ant headed to the rehab facility on Sunday for his stay of least two-months. It is possible that the star will be gone for longer but fans are encouraging him to take the time to get himself back on his feet. The out-pouring of support has been incredible. One can only hope that Ant gets the tools he needs to beat his addictions.

Ant made a statement saying that he wanted to speak out so that others who were dealing with similar issues would find help for their struggles too.
