Ant McPartlin arrives at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court

Ant McPartlin arrives at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court

Ant McPartlin was fined £86,000, and given a 20-month driving ban at his sentencing today.

Ant admitted he was more than twice the legal limit after his Mini collided with two other cars in west London last month.

The court heard that Ant had 75mg of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - twice the legal limit.

The TV star and This Morning presenter took to Instagram to share her exciting news, uploading a black and white image of herself alongside her new venture's name - Truly.

The statement said: "I appreciate people in the public eye should provide a positive example". He entered a plea of guilty and was fined £86,000.

As reporter Alison Freeman updated viewers on the developments in court, a white van pulled into shot, with another auto bumping into the back of it, after another vehicle crashed into them.

The court heard that the driver of the other Mini said afterwards he thought he and his family were going to die in the collision.

The driver of the BMW, named only as Dr Ng, said immediately after the collision her nine-year-old son, who was uninjured but in shock, told her: "I am dying, Mummy, I am dying".

She said: 'For me, being a woman, it's nice to have a space where you can have that honest, open conversation that isn't too militant or frightening or one-way.

In a statement, read by his lawyer, he apologised for his actions and said he was "ashamed and mortified" by what he had done.

"I accept full culpability for this and wish to apologise to all concerned". Higher standards are expected of me, I expect them of myself.

McPartlin's barrister said his client had been seeking help for "alcohol and emotional issues" at the time of the crash, adding that his mother was in the auto with him. He says he understood magic the day his daughter was born healthy, despite his pregnant wife battling cancer.

The judge told the court that Ant had showed "genuine remorse" after the incident.
