Ant McPartlin ‘arrested on suspicion of drink-driving following car crash’ in west London

It is believed that Ant was arrested at 4pm earlier today following a “three-car smash”.

Reports suggest that the stalwart face of ITV’s Mini veered into the wrong lane after a sharp bend on Lower Richmond Road in south west London. 

The 42-year-old allegedly hit a green Mini and a BMW X5.

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative of Ant who declined to comment. 

A witness at the time explained what they saw. 

The source said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw who it was. 

“There were about six or seven police cars in total.”

Another source told the publication: “I came on the scene moments after it happened and he was being escorted to the police car to be put in the back.

“Everyone was in a state of shock at who it was.

“I was driving past very slowly and Ant looked straight at me and I thought he looked tired. I was only about 3ft from him.

“His eyes looked very heavy and he had a solemn face – it looked like his world had just ended.”

The witness explained he was the only one being put in a police car.

A third explained the bang was so loud they thought it was a “train crash”. 

“There’s a level-crossing nearby and I genuinely thought a train had wiped out a car,” they explained. 

The witness added: “Near a bend in the road there were two badly damaged Minis which looked as though they’d collided and a BMW X5 — and people wandering around in shock.”

It is thought that a child passenger in one of the cars was taken to hospital for a precautionary check-up, according to the Met.
