Ant McPartlin speaks about his recovery: 'I was necking tramadol to the point of psychosis'

Post by Guest on Sun Aug 13, 2017 9:49 pm

Award-winning TV presenter Ant McPartlin has spoken about his addiction to prescription painkillers after spending two months in rehab.

McPartlin, half of presenting duo Ant and Dec with childhood friend Declan Donnolley, was admitted to rehab in June after a knee operation left him reliant on a cocktail of painkillers. He pleaded with his wife, make-up artist Lisa Armstrong, to take him to hospital after a night bingeing on tramadol, morphine and alcohol.

McPartlin has also said that he was clinically depressed for a year but never told anybody until "the very end".

McPartlin told The Sun on Sunday that his addiction to painkillers worsened during 2016 but reached its peak earlier this year when he used a cocktail of drugs to help him through his presenting duties, including a dance routine with Take That on Saturday Night Takeaway.

I know someone who takes it and he thinks he's addicted now. What do you do though if it's the only thing that works?
