The driver of the other Mini vehicle also told the court they thought they could have died in the incident.

Ant McPartlin has pleaded guilty to his drink driving charge. The charge stated he had 75 mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

After being involved in a collision with two other cars on 18 March in Mortlake he was breathalysed and found to be more than two times over the drink drive limit.

District Judge Barbara Barnes told Ant: "You are a well-known and successful entertainer", whose weekly income is estimated to be around £130,000 a week.

Ant's driving ban could be reduced to 15 months, provided he completes a referral programme by the middle of May next year.

She added: "I think it will have quite an impact on you to know you're no longer a man of good character". He is now undergoing treatment for his alcohol issues.

The court heard Ant's barrister Liam Walker said his client had been seeking help for "alcohol and emotional issues" at the time of the crash.
