JAN MOIR: Ant ISN'T the real victim, whatever his celeb pals say, because he nearly ended the lives of an entire family
On a chilly afternoon, on the edge of spring, Ant McPartlin saw the world as he knew it slip from his grasp. It wasn't just his car the television star lost control of when he crashed into two oncoming vehicles in West London last Sunday (left).
