When you’ve been missing someone quite badly, sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference.
Ant McPartlin’s returned to twitter for the first time in nearly seven weeks has been treated as a sign things are getting very much back to normal.
The 43-year-old has been on an almost complete social media hiatus in 2018 as he rebuilds his life following his drink-drive arrest back in March.
He shares a twitter account with co-star Declan Donnelly and although his post was a push for tonight’s show Re-Play 2018, it was the initial ‘A’ at the end of the tweet which had fans full of excitement.

That tweet that got them all talking
He posted: "***exciting show alert*** Tonight ITV 9pm Re-Play 2018 with Richard Osman.
"Play along and see if you’ve been paying attention to 2018. Enjoy! A".
Fans loved the fact that he was back, well over a month on from his last post.
"Don’t care about the show, just love that Ant tweeted" one replied on twitter.

"Can’t wait to see you back on my TV screen Ant! it’s not the same without you!!" another wrote.
They are counting down the days until telly favourites Ant and Dec are side-by-side on our screens again.
The hosts are preparing to film Britain’s Got Talent auditions in January, ten months on from the moment his life changed.
