According to The Sun, Ant’s planning agent told the council in the reports: ‘The existing rear garden is a good size with a boundary fence around the sides of the property with mature trees on all sides adding to the privacy.

‘There is very little overlooking possible between ground floors of neighbouring properties.

‘The rear garden is very secluded and the proposed swimming pool and the garden room will not be visible from neighbouring houses.’

Construction: The publication report the council approved the outdoor plans, two single-storey extensions and a garage conversion to a bathroom

The publication report the council approved the outdoor plans, two single-storey extensions and a garage conversion to a bathroom as the renovations were ‘designed to reflect the character and appearance of the original building’.

MailOnline has contacted Ant’s representatives for comment. 

In November, The Mail On Sunday revealed Ant tried to maintain anonymity in a planning application for his £6 million mansion by using the name ‘Logan Mountstuart’.  

Logan Mountstuart is the fictitious British writer whose story is told in the 2002 novel Any Human Heart by William Boyd.

Logan struggles with alcohol, depression and the split-up with his wife – events echoed in Ant’s recent past. In June 2017, he checked into rehab after confessing to problems with substance abuse, prescription drugs and alcohol following operations on his knee.

Nine months later he was fined £86,000 and given a 20-month driving ban after pleading guilty to drink-driving. He had been more than twice the alcohol limit when he caused a three-car collision in Richmond, South-West London, while driving with his mother, Christine Woodhall.

Just three months earlier he announced he was splitting with his wife Lisa Armstrong after 11 years of marriage.

Ant submitted an application to the council last March as he continued to renovate the seven-bedroom house he is moving into with Anne-Marie and her two daughters.

He wanted to put up a canopy in his garden large enough to put a car in, and named the applicant as Logan Mountstuart.  

Earlier this year, Saturday Night Takeaway host Ant was reported to have handed over £31 million to Lisa in their divorce settlement, including their £5 million home in West London, after an ‘eight-hour negotiation’.

The beauty expert was said to have been the ‘peacemaker’ during a recent eight-hour long discussion about her divorce from the TV star, claimed The Sun. 

The publication first alleged the TV veteran offered up more than half of his estimated £50m fortune, but was ‘delighted’ that the case has come to an end as he can ‘move on’, two years after announcing their split.

However, as the news broke, the former Deuce musician took to Twitter to deny the reports, posting: ‘Nope a load of nonsense AGAIN….’
