    I really feel sorry for him and hope he does beat his addiction but what isn't defensible is his own personal choice to get into a car afterwords. I don't read much news etc but it seems even Jamie Carragher got more of a harsh deal from the media and public. When really comparing the two two offenses Ants is far worse.
    Ant almost kills someone whilst driving under the influence -he gets a mass outpouring of sympathy and pity . Carragher spits on someone and folk want him lynched and his career ended in shame.

    Another example of the upside down world we live in these days.

    Arrested at 3pm so must ahve been a proper knees up the night afore.

    Or he's been having a swally during the day.

    Funnier that his mum was in the car also - she's supposed to be the one helping him beat his demons.

    Jail him now

    We got the same kind of thing on here after Boyle was done for drink-driving. I think it's a combination of some folk being able to relate to drink-driving (which can be done inadvertently) and the fact that alcoholism is now viewed as a disease.

    I agree with you though. There's no excuse for driving over the limit and it's far more serious than spitting on someone.

    Think he was arrested at 4pm which means it wasn't from the night before.

    Do I have sympathy for his mental health problems? Yes.

    Is he a massive twat for driving drunk? Yes.

    Not sure how you come to that conclusion?
    Easy to still be over the limit at 4pm the next day after a heavy session the previous night.

    Ant (from Ant & Dec) has been done for drink driving and their Saturday night takeaway show has been cancelled.

    Been amazed by some peoples reaction on twitter, giving it "aww he's got mental health issues, he's struggling with a drink problem etc etc". IMO he deserves no sympathy for getting behind the wheel of a car drunk. I understand he has mental health issues and appears to have a drink problem which are both horrible to have but he willingly drove under the influence. A selfish act, putting other peoples lives at risk. A 3 year old had to be taken to hospital. I understand thankfully it was just as a precautionary check but never the less it could have been much worse!

    No excuse for it I'm afraid. He has plenty money so could have afforded a taxi fare. Deciding to drive just shows complete thoughtlessness and disregard for others.
    Still doesn’t make him interesting.

    Can’t stand them.

    T.V. For Sun readers.
    Absolute pish, I'll not have my name associated with the sun. Just a bit of light hearted entertainment and feel good factor on a Saturday night nothing like that rag.

    Charged today at a London police station with drink driving.
    Seems unlikely he’d be released without charge on the day. Perhaps the later charges were to do with the accident?

    Edit - https://www.drinkdriving.org/police_detention_bail.php

    Looks like he gave a blood or urine sample.
