Ant McPartlin takes his best MATE on honeymoon with him and Anne-Marie – and it's not Dec

ANT McPartlin has taken his best mate on honeymoon with him and his new wife Anne-Marie – but it’s not Dec.

The presenter, 45, was spotted messing about on the beach with Jonathan Wilkes, after the newlyweds flew to the Algarve following the showbiz wedding of the year.

Jonathan is an entertainer, who is known for being best friends with Robbie Willliams, but he and his wife Nikki are also very close to the presenter and Anne-Marie.

In fact, they are so close they decided to go on honeymoon with them in a break from tradition. 

TV favourite Ant looked happy and healthy as he stripped off to his swim shorts to have fun in the sun.

He showed just how head over heels he is for his former PA as he revealed a chest tattoo of the initial “A” inside a love heart. 

The black tattoo also appears to be a nod to the logo for Alcoholics Anonymous, which shows a triangle inside a circle bearing the letters AA.

Ant, who sought help from the ­support group following a battle with alcohol and drug addiction in 2017, had a version of their official logo ­tattooed on his wrist a year later.

But his latest tattoo seems to combine the AA logo with Anne-Marie’s name after she supported his recovery as the “sober partner” helping to keep him on track.

The group had earlier enjoyed lunch at beachside restaurant Maria’s.

Onlookers told how the new Mr and Mrs McPartlin seemed to be having the time of their lives as they soaked up the sun.

One said: “Ant and Anne-Marie seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves. They were singing and dancing during their lunch at the beach restaurant.

“Then they headed down to the sea to cool off, and relax on the sand.

“They were behaving like typical newlyweds, and were quite affectionate with each other, which was lovely to see. They are clearly very much in love. And after the fanfare of the wedding they seem to be making the most of each other’s company.”
