One half of everyone’s favourite TV duo made his triumphant return to television last month when the latest series of Britain’s Got Talent made its debut.

I am of course referring to Ant McPartlin, who after a troubled year has been welcomed back with open arms by the millions of BGT viewers.

Throughout the new series, some eagle-eyed fans have noticed that the TV host has got himself some new ink. But what is Ant McPartlin’s tattoo? And what does it mean?

What is Ant’s tattoo?

Well, Ant actually has more than one tattoo, and during last week’s episode (Saturday, May 18th) viewers got a rare glimpse of his ink.

It appears that Ant currently has an arrow tattoo down his right forearm, as well as a symbol on each wrist.

The Britain’s Got Talent host usually keeps his tattoos out of sight, however, every now and again eagle-eyed viewers can spot them.

What do his tattoos mean?

According to The Sun, ant’s tattoos each have different meanings, although the inspiration behind some of his ink is still unknown.

The TV host currently has the letter “S” on his right wrist, which stands for the word “sober”, whilst another on his left wrist has an unknown meaning.

Ant also has the Alcoholics Anonymous symbol tattooed onto his wrist, which symbolises his ongoing struggle with addiction.

The Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway host previously revealed that his tattoos have “personal meaning” and said that the meaning behind each of them is “very positive.”
