Ant and Dec

Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly met at the age of thirteen on BBC Children’s drama, Byker Grove.  

Their characters, PJ and Duncan, were mates in the show and Ant & Dec soon became firm friends in real life.

Ant & Dec are signed exclusively to ITV, a deal originating in December 2000. They have gone on to host an array of hit shows including Pop Idol, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Britain’s Got Talent, Red or Black?, Push the Button and most recently the relaunch of the BAFTA winning show Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Since 2001 Ant and Dec, along with their shows, have won over a staggering 28 National Television Awards (including Most Popular Entertainment Presenters for over 13 consecutive years), six British Comedy Awards, five BAFTA’s and a variety of other industry accolades.

In 2014, Ant & Dec hosted their first live arena tour around the country with Takeaway on Tour, a live adaptation of the TV Show, playing to over 300,000 people.

Spring 2015 will see them host The BRITS for a second consecutive year and launch a brand new series of the hugely successful 'Saturday Night Takeaway'.
