What a stupid boy. Worth 60 million and doesn’t get a taxi. I just don’t know how he’ll come back from this latest fiasco (drink drive car crash hits 3 year old).

Boy?

He's forty fucking two.

And he is a dickhead.

I hope the 3yo gets better quickly.

Fruitbat1980 Sun 18-Mar-18 23:19:48

Ditto.

Ant and Dec are annoying idiots.

RoseWhiteTips Sun 18-Mar-18 23:23:36

They still think they are in Byker Grove.

RoseWhiteTips Sun 18-Mar-18 23:24:03

Ant has issues for sure.

The 3 yo wasn't injured and was taken to hospital as a precaution.

I wonder if he was over the limit from the night before, like Kirsty Gallagher recently.

NotAllTimsWearCapes Sun 18-Mar-18 23:24:33

Come back in what way?

Fruitbat1980 Sun 18-Mar-18 23:28:13

I know he isn’t/ wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea but no getting away from fact he’s one of the most highly paid/ popular presenters on TV. I just can’t see how he can stand on SNT next weekend and be jovial after this. My moneys already on holly willoubhy being drafted to stand in next week.

Trumpdump Sun 18-Mar-18 23:34:30

I doubt he will be on SNT next weekend. I was reading today (before this accident) that they've already shelved some of their upcoming projects...

littlemisscomper Sun 18-Mar-18 23:37:11

He won't be back on BGT. I wonder who they'll use instead?

Ariesgirl1988 Sun 18-Mar-18 23:38:25

erm what exactly was the point of this thread? whats it to do with us what his problems are? blimey what a waste of a thread hmm

GabsAlot Sun 18-Mar-18 23:38:57

he hasnt been charged yet-he also didnt hit a 3 year old it was another car

MistressDeeCee Sun 18-Mar-18 23:41:00

People have done this and far worse and it's not ended their career

Fruitbat1980 Sun 18-Mar-18 23:41:39

Airiesgirl think maybe your missing the point! You could say that about 75% of mumsnet threads. Perhaps this thread isn’t the place for you?
I just don’t think he’ll be back, off to rehab? Who knows. Feel a bit sorry for dec!

CircleSquareCircleSquare Sun 18-Mar-18 23:42:07

Wow.

notangelinajolie Sun 18-Mar-18 23:54:19

I think that is the last we will see of Ant and Dec. What a loser.

RunMummyRun68 Sun 18-Mar-18 23:56:37

She will have been terrified, as will her parents and other road users!

He needs to be off the tv now....plenty of new talent coming through to take his place

I hope little girl is ok

Ariesgirl1988 Mon 19-Mar-18 00:01:18

@ OP I'm missing the point? erm who starts a thread asking if they're being unreasonable thinking ant will struggle to come back from this? seriously people get a life its not our business its down to him to sort his problems out! hopefully he didn't hurt anyone is more or less my thoughts on the topic but not something to start a db about hmm

MotherforkingShirtballs Mon 19-Mar-18 00:03:53

Sorry ariesgirl, OP obviously didn't realise that the Thread Police were on duty tonight hmm

WashingMatilda Mon 19-Mar-18 00:04:57

aries you've commented twice on a thread you claim to have no interest in. hmm

YANBU OP

RunMummyRun68 Mon 19-Mar-18 00:05:00

Is it not our business?

Could have been any one of us injured.... maybe it was an MNer and her dd in the other car. I'd say it's all our business when it comes to drink/driving and the ongoing adoration of that person who committed the crime

MotherforkingShirtballs Mon 19-Mar-18 00:11:22

I don't think he'll struggle much at all, his management team will be PR-ing the shit out of this as we speak. There'll be the repentant statement - "I did a stupid thing, I'm utterly apologetic". Then the grand gesture - 3yo and her family publically showered with extravagant gifts/money. Followed by the return to rehab and return to TV after he's discharged.

Drink driving is unforgivable, he could have easily killed someone by getting behind that wheel. I feel bad for Dec who is going to have his career fucked up by all of this, I feel bad for the family whose car he hit, and I feel bad for his loved ones who are seeing him sink further into destructive behaviours.

HildaZelda Mon 19-Mar-18 00:18:21

It's Dec I feel sorry for. If Ant goes down, he's going to take Dec with him, from the point of view of Dec's career being gone I mean. One half of a duo. I don't think it could just be 'Dec'.

retirednow Mon 19-Mar-18 00:22:45

Who cares, he's just out of rehab, should know better and could have killed someone. I don't think we'll be seeing him on tv for a while.
