The men started banging on the window and making obscene gestures, so Ant went outside to ask them to leave – and was promptly put in a headlock.

When Ant’s mother rushed outside and attempted to help him, she was pushed over.

Luckily, nobody was hurt – and no arrests were made.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Officers attended but no allegations were made and no one suffered any injuries.”

This isn’t the first time that Ant’s attracted unwanted attention on a night out – in 2011, he was punched in the face in an unprovoked attack in Chiswick.
