Ant McPartlin is set to make his long awaited to return to our screens when the new series of Britains Got Talent kicks off this Saturday.
The presenter took a break from the spotlight following a string of personal issues, including a drink driving charge and his divorce from wife Lisa Armstrong.
And 43-year-old Ant was welcomed back to his position with an adorable comment from a young contestant.
As Flakefleet Primary School from Lancashire took to the stage to perform their rendition of Queens Dont Stop Me Now, the BGT judges were brought to tears, with 47-year-old David Walliams showering the childrens act with praise.
The comedian said, “You made our hearts soar. Its one of the most joyous things Ive ever seen.”
After receiving the judges complimentary comments, the choir headed backstage to be greeted by 43-year-old Ant and his long-term presenting partner, Declan Donnelly, also 43.
One little girl took a shine to Ant, hugging him as he picked her up into his arms.
Clinging on to him, the schoolgirl sweetly confessed, “I missed you.
Looking touched by the moment, the Im A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! frontman replied, “I missed you too. Now youve got to let go now, youve got to go through.”
The young performer continued to hug Ant, saying, “Bye bye,” with Ant tearfully responding, “Love you lots.”
