TV star Ant McPartlin has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving after his vehicle smashed into two cars in Richmond, West London. The 42-year-old failed a roadside breathalyser test and was arrested by police. The troubled television personality allegedly crashed his black Mini after losing control of his vehicle on a roundabout (centre), which veered into the opposite side of the road and collided with a green Mini, which had a young girl and couple inside. He had been out walking his dogs with his mother shortly before the crash (left) and she was also in the vehicle at the time of the incident. The collision comes after a tumultuous few months for the I'm A Celeb star, who is estimated to be worth £60 million. Last year, he booked himself into a rehab clinic after becoming hooked on painkillers and is now divorcing his wife Lisa Armstrong. Just hours before the collision, Ant had been hosting his ITV show 'Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway' with co-host Declan Donnelly (right).
