Last night’s ITV's National Television Awards saw Ant and Dec again picking up top honours and well deserved. Everybody's favourite Geordie duo Ant and Dec were presented the Landmark award for their service to British television entertainment at the National Television Awards. The Geordie pair were honoured by Prince Charles and also Newcastle royalty Alan Shearer on their 25-year career in show business. Dec was visibly touched by the award as he was seen getting a bit teary on stage. Earlier the same evening, the two stars received the best entertainment presenter prize - making it the 13th time they have picked up the award.
These two best pals have been together both off and on television for 25 years and still on top of their game. Both still in their mid 30’s, young enough to continue for many years bringing us fun and laughter to Saturday night viewing. I know some of you will think their trivial and keep comparing them to Morecambe and Wise and I feel that’s unfair. The only things they have in common is that they are both hugely successful double acts who draw millions into their TV shows. Morecambe and Wise are comedians, not so Ant and Dec who started together as 12 year olds starring in the successful TV children’s show Biker Grove as PJ and Duncan the characters they launched their successful music careers going on to have a string of hit records including Let’s Get Ready To Rumble ( See the new live version on video below)and to host a string of hugely successful TV shows including Pop Idol, Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, PokerFace, Push the Button, Britain's Got Talent, Red or Black? In 2013 they signed a new 3 year deal with ITV said to be worth 8 million each!!! They are both outstanding entertainers and their model behaviour on and off screen is a perfect example to are young and is a credit to them both. The video below shows Ant & Dec donning their PJ & Duncan outfits once again on their Saturday Night Takeaway Show 23rd March 2013. Although this was just done for a bit of fun it "Let's Get Ready To Rumble” was rereleased and powered by the TV show immediately shot up to number one on the UKiTunes chart and on Sunday 31 March 2013 the track was revealed as the Official UK Number 1 single on the The Official Chart on BBC Radio 1. All money made from the re-release was donated to charity. I believe that British television would be a poorer place without them.
