The 'Saturday Night Takeaway' star's breathalyser reading was 75mg of alcohol per 100ml, according to the charge sheet submitted to the courts by police.

Ant was arrested after he crashed his car while under the influence in Richmond, London last month.

According to the Daily Mirror, the sheet states: "Drove a motor vehicle, namely a Black Mini...after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in your breath, namely 75 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, exceeded the prescribed limit."

The legal limit is 35mg per 100ml.

Ant's case was due to be heard at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court last week but it was postponed for two weeks and the TV star will now appear on April 16.

The court said in a statement to the Evening Standard newspaper: "An adjournment in this case has been agreed. Ant McPartlin will not be appearing at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on Wednesday. He will appear in court on Monday April 16."

Representatives for the star have said Ant, 42, has terminated all of his work commitments for the "foreseeable future" and has returned to rehab after he underwent treatment for prescription drug and alcohol addiction last summer.

His return to rehab meant his partner Dec Donnelly was forced to present 'Saturday Night Takeaway' on his own for the first time in 20 years last weekend.

But, despite his nerves, the 41-year-old presenter was praised for his appearance.

He said afterwards: "It's been the weirdest, weirdest show. But I wanted to say a huge, huge thank you to lots of people here. Most of all I just wanted to thank you guys. That reception when I came down the stairs ... I wasn't sure what was going to happen. I wasn't sure how I was going to do or how you were going to react ... but you carried me all the way through the show. I couldn't have done it without you guys. Thank you. I think that's it. I've talked quite enough this evening - enough talking for two. Thank you so much. And we can all go to the bar."
