British Tv star Ant Mcpartlin was assaulted outside a London pub earlier this month (Mar14) after a gang of thugs interrupted a family meal.

The 38 year old, one half of Britain's biggest hosting duo Ant and Dec, was dining with his mother Christine and another relative in Chiswick when a group of yobs began filming him through a window.

He went outside to ask them to stop, but he was grabbed and placed in a headlock. His mother tried to come to his rescue but was thrown to the floor.

Police were called to the scene but no further action has been taken.

A spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police says, "Officers were called at 8.13pm to (Chiswick) to reports of an assault. Officers attended but no allegations were made and no one suffered any injuries."
