The troubled TV star, who was charged with drink driving earlier last year, opted for a small inking on his right wrist last year but he was sporting more body art than previously on tonight's show.

Declan Donnelly's co-host has managed to keep his several tattoos under wraps until now.

Fans speculated about the inking on his wrist before – with many guessing it says "strong," "support" or struggle." following his stint in rehab.

However Daily Star Online revealed in 2018 that Lisa Armstrong's ex's new tattoo is most likely to be an S&H.

A tattoo expert said: "Ant's new tattoo appears to be S & H."

Meanwhile, a leading tattooist to the stars added: "The symbol in-between the S and the H looks like the symbol of togetherness."

At first glance the ink looks like the number 86 – the same figure Ant was charged with after appearing in court – £86,000.

Though while they remained coy about the meaning of the ink, a source close to Ant McPartlin confirmed the tattoo does not include the '86' or indeed any numbers.
