TV star Ant McPartlin has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving after a crash in southwest London.

The 42-year-old is said to have been involved in a collision with two other cars while driving his Mini in Richmond just before 4pm on Sunday.

A child passenger in one of the cars – believed to be a three-year-old girl – was taken to hospital for checks, as a precaution.

Others involved were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

McPartlin failed a roadside breath test and was arrested.

He had been with his mother at the time, according to The Sun.

Pictures of the scene show the front driver’s side of his black mini smashed in.

A Met Police spokesman said a 42-year-old man had been taken to a south London police station for questioning and enquiries continue.

McPartlin has since been released and reportedly arrived home at 2.40am this morning.

The Saturday Night Takeaway presenter entered rehab last year after struggling with an addiction to painkillers.

In January, he announced he was divorcing wife and Strictly Come Dancing make-up boss Lisa Armstrong after 11 years of marriage.
