Ant McPartlin braves the rain as he walks twin Maltipoos Milo and Bumble with beloved Labrador Hurley in London… after lavish wedding details emerge
Ant McPartlin was on dutiful dog-walking duties on Sunday as he stepped out in the drizzle with his pet pooches.
Walking in a park in the capital, the TV presenter, 45, walked along with his twin Maltipoos Milo and Bumble and his beloved Labrador Hurley, shortly after details emerged about his lavish upcoming wedding to fiancée Anne-Marie Corbett.
Ant cut a casual figure in a black sweater and baseball cap and khaki shorts.

The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! host completed his look with a pair of black trainers.
He didn’t seem fazed by the wet weather, throwing a stick for Hurley, with Bumble and Milo looking a tad bedraggled.
The walk was undoubtedly a breather from Ant’s wedding preparations.
According to a source in Hampshire, a grand stately home-turned-hotel in Hampshire will host a star-studded reception for the event on August 6 and 7.
Ant is paying for 100 friends to stay at £1,000 per night and has told them to send the spa bill to his £5,000 per night honeymoon suite (more expensive than The Ritz!).
The wedding ceremony is expected to be in a nearby church.

Ant’s engagement to Anne-Marie was announced on New Year’s Eve after the presenter popped the question in a romantic Christmas Eve proposal.
It’s believed Ant designed Anne-Marie’s engagement ring himself – paying up to £200,000 for the rock.
In May, Ant enjoyed a booze-free stag do organised by Declan Donnelly in Berkshire.
The famous pair enjoyed a six-hour round of golf with friends, before heading to an exclusive clubhouse and tucking into a four-course lunch prepared by the head chef.
‘Ant was having the time of his life, he and Dec were laughing and joking all the way around,’ an insider told The Daily Mirror.

‘You could tell there was friendly competition between them, but they were still whooping each other on when one of them played a specially good shot.
‘Ant had a really good time. It was the perfect day for golf.’
Dec reportedly toasted his close friend’s happiness and booze was strictly off the menu after Ant quit alcohol in 2018 following his arrest for drink driving.
Ant was previously married to former wife Lisa for 12 years.
The pair, who were together for 23 years, confirmed their split in 2018, following Ant’s stint in rehab the previous year where he sought treatment for painkiller addiction.
Following rehab, Ant took a year out from TV and he and Lisa parted ways, with their divorce being finalised in April 2020.
