BGT fans are preparing themselves for a very different show when it kicks off on Saturday night, as, for the first time, Ant McPartlin will be absent.

Instead, his co-host Declan Donnelly will take the reigns after Ant, 40, pulled out of all TV commitments following his arrest for alleged drink-driving last month.

Now BGT boss Simon Cowell has insisted the door will always be open for Ant to return, telling The Sun: ‘We’ve known each other for a long time, and you stand by the people you work with over the years, for obvious reasons.

X Factor judge Simon also spoke about scenes filmed just after Ant announced his split from wife Lisa Armstrong, who works on the show as a make-up artist.
