Ant McPartlin has opened up about life with his wife Anne-Marie Corbett’s – explaining he can’t wait to spend more time with their family after taking a step back with his career.

The 48-year-old television presenter tied-the-knot with 46-year-old Anne-Marie in a lavish ceremony in August 2021. Anne-Marie has two children from a previous marriage – and Ant has explained how much he is enjoying being a step-father to them.

Ant says he can’t wait to quit his ITV show Saturday Night Takeaway – which he has hosted alongside 48-year-old Declan Donnelly since 2002 – so he can spend more time with his family.

Dec himself became a first time dad in July 2022 as he and wife Ali Astall – who he married in 2015 – welcomed a son. Speaking of the end of Saturday Night Takeaway, Ant said: “On a more personal level, part of the reason we’re pausing Takeaway is we need a break ourselves, and we need to spend some time with our family.”

He continued to Fault magazine: “We’ve both got children that we need to spend time with for a little bit. We need time to think and, and time to step back and look at the bigger picture and just see where we are now.”

And speaking of his own changing relationship with Dec, Ant said: “We started working together when we were 13, and we became friends very quickly. But, you know, we’re both, were are both 49 this year. We’re obviously not the same people that we were when we were 13. So throughout our career, you know, we’ve both changed. But being able to maintain that friendship doesn’t come naturally.

“Sometimes you have to work with friendships, and sometimes you have to compromise and sometimes you have to give each other space and time and whatever.”

Fans of Ant and Dec were devastated last year when it was revealed the 2024 season of their long-running prime time show Saturday Night Take-Away would be the last.
