Ant & Dec


Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly met at the age of thirteen on the set of the hit 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.


After a brief stint as pop stars (13 Top 40 hit singles), the duo have gone on to become the UK’s most successful TV presenters, hosting shows such as SMTV Live, CD:UK, The BRITS, Pop Idol, Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, Soccer-Aid, I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! and Britain's Got Talent for ITV.


Ant and Dec and their shows have won a staggering 39 National Television Awards (including Most Popular Entertainment Presenters for the last 18 years), 8 RTS awards, 24 TV Choice awards, 13 BAFTAs and a variety of other industry accolades. 


The duo have been ambassadors for The Prince’s Trust for over 17 years, and were asked to exclusively interview Princes Charles, William and Harry for the 30th Anniversary celebrations of The Prince’s Trust. This interview went out in over 20 countries worldwide. 


Ant & Dec also have their own production company, Mitre, which creates and co-produces a number of TV formats including Saturday Night Takeaway and the new hit ITV series In For A Penny.
