Carl Fogarty slams Ant McPartlin and tells him to 'man up' in furious rant

In an interview with The Daily Star, 52-year-old Carl didn’t hold back when asked about Ant – who pleaded guilty to drink-driving last week.

Ant gave a heartfelt apology after appearing in court, where he was fined £86,000 and banned from driving for 20 months.

This wasn’t enough for Carl however, who met Ant when he won I’m A Celebrity in 2014.

He told the publication he thinks Ant should: “Grow up, sort yourself out and take responsibility.

“Don’t go running off to rehab every five minutes when something goes wrong.


“He got in a car p****d – don’t do that, it’s not right. “You don’t need to go to rehab to be told to sort that out, you know that’s wrong and you shouldn’t be doing that.

“He needs telling straight, he needs to sort himself out and man up.”

Following the crash on March 20, Ant checked into rehab and cancelled all his television commitments.

Outside Wimbledon Wimbledon Magistrates Court Ant, 42, said he was “ashamed and mortified”.

He said: “I accept full culpability for this and wish to apologise to all concerned.

“I'm incredibly disappointed that I've let myself and so many others down on this occasion.”

Ant also said he was seeking help to “address the problems that he has in order to overcome them – and ensure they never happen again.”

He also said he recognised he needed to set a “positive example” to others as he was in the public eye.

Carl's comments come just days after The Sun revealed that his daughter Danielle had split from her fiance Jake Quickenden.

The pair, who met through Carl, decided to call it a day after a series of explosive rows.
