Ant: All good after pub assault

Ant McPartlin has revealed he is "absolutely fine" after being assaulted outside a pub.

The Saturday Night Takeaway star was having dinner with his mother at Old Station House gastro pub in Chiswick when a gang started making rude gestures and using mobile phones to film him through the window, and when he asked them to leave, the group put the 38-year-old in a headlock.

The TV star tweeted: "Thanks for all your lovely tweets. Me and my mam are absolutely fine. Not gonna let an idiot ruin things. All good and V happy!"

The Sun reported that Ant's mother Christine was pushed to the ground when she tried to intervene.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said they were called to an incident in Spencer Road, Chiswick, shortly after 8pm on Thursday, March 13.

He said: "No allegations were made and no one suffered any injuries."
