Background Ant & Dec_section_0

McPartlin and Donnelly met while working on the BBC children's drama Byker Grove in 1989. Ant & Dec_sentence_11

After a shaky start, they soon became best friends. Ant & Dec_sentence_12

They have achieved such popularity as a duo that they are hardly seen apart on screen. Ant & Dec_sentence_13

It is reported that they are each insured against the other's death, with the amount reportedly being around £1 million. Ant & Dec_sentence_14

Career Ant & Dec_section_1

Acting Ant & Dec_section_2

Although McPartlin had gained some television experience with a brief stint on the children's television series Why Don't You? Ant & Dec_sentence_15 , which was broadcast on the BBC, Donnelly was the first of the two to acquire his place on the BBC children's drama Byker Grove. Ant & Dec_sentence_16

He joined in 1989, playing Duncan. Ant & Dec_sentence_17

A year later, McPartlin joined the cast to play PJ (series 2, episode 5). Ant & Dec_sentence_18

Their friendship began when their storylines collided, creating a friendship both on and off-screen. Ant & Dec_sentence_19

Byker Grove producer Matthew Robinson told them to "Stay together through any row you have, whatever it is, be together and you could be the future Morecambe and Wise. Ant & Dec_sentence_20

I think they have proved that in many ways." Ant & Dec_sentence_21

Donnelly also played a stable boy in the film adaptation of the novel The Cinder Path in his teenage years. Ant & Dec_sentence_22

They also went on to co-star in the 2006 sci-fi comedy movie Alien Autopsy. Ant & Dec_sentence_23

Music Ant & Dec_section_3

Main article: PJ & Duncan discography Ant & Dec_sentence_24

After leaving television, the duo turned their hand to pop music. Ant & Dec_sentence_25

Their first single was a song they performed while part of Byker Grove, titled "Tonight I'm Free". Ant & Dec_sentence_26

The single had some success, and the duo went on to record two albums under their character names of PJ & Duncan. Ant & Dec_sentence_27

Their most famous hit during this period was the BRIT Award nominated "Let's Get Ready To Rhumble", for which the video and moves were choreographed by Mark Short, who had previously worked with Tina Turner and Peter Andre. Ant & Dec_sentence_28

For their third album, the duo reinvented themselves under their real names of Ant & Dec. Ant & Dec_sentence_29

The album featured their signature single "Shout". Ant & Dec_sentence_30

During their time as primarily music artists, the pair released sixteen singles and three studio albums; however, none of their releases managed to reach number one, with their highest UK chart position being number three. Ant & Dec_sentence_31

The duo did, however, reach the top ten in Germany and Japan, and even had a number-one single in Germany, with their cover of the Everly Brothers' "All I Have to Do Is Dream". Ant & Dec_sentence_32

Success also struck in other European countries. Ant & Dec_sentence_33

The duo had a short-lived revival in the music industry, releasing a song for the 2002 FIFA World Cup, titled "We're on the Ball". Ant & Dec_sentence_34

The track peaked at No. Ant & Dec_sentence_35

3, being beaten by Will Young and Gareth Gates. Ant & Dec_sentence_36

On 23 March 2013 Ant and Dec performed "Let's Get Ready To Rhumble" as part of their show Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, which powered the song to number one on the UK iTunes chart and on Sunday 31 March 2013 the track was revealed as the Official UK Number 1 single on The Official Chart on BBC Radio 1. Ant & Dec_sentence_37

All money made from the re-release was donated to charity. Ant & Dec_sentence_38

Presenting Ant & Dec_section_4

Children's television Ant & Dec_section_5

Ant & Dec got their first presenting job in 1994, while they were still releasing music under the alias of PJ & Duncan. Ant & Dec_sentence_39

They co-presented a Saturday-morning children's show entitled Gimme 5, which was broadcast on CITV. Ant & Dec_sentence_40

The show only lasted two series before being dropped. Ant & Dec_sentence_41

In 1995, the duo were once again offered a job on CBBC, this time presenting their own series, entitled The Ant & Dec Show. Ant & Dec_sentence_42

The series was broadcast from 1995 to 1996, and in 1996, Ant & Dec won two BAFTA Awards, one for 'Best Children's Show' and one for 'Best Sketch Comedy Show'. Ant & Dec_sentence_43

In 1997, a VHS release, entitled The Ant & Dec Show – Confidential, was made available in shops, and featured an hour of the best bits from two years of the programme, as well as specially recorded sketches and music videos. Ant & Dec_sentence_44

In 1997, the duo switched to Channel 4, presenting an early-evening children's show entitled Ant & Dec Unzipped. Ant & Dec_sentence_45

This show also won a BAFTA, but was dropped after just one series. Ant & Dec_sentence_46

ITV soon signed the duo in August 1998, and within weeks, were assigned to present ITV1's Saturday morning programmes SMTV Live and CD:UK, alongside Cat Deeley. Ant & Dec_sentence_47

The duo presented the shows alongside Deeley for three years, becoming the most popular ITV Saturday morning show. Ant & Dec_sentence_48

The programme's success was the mix of games such as Eat My Goal, Wonkey Donkey and Challenge Ant, sketches such as "Dec Says" and the "Secret of My Success", and the chemistry between Ant, Dec and Cat. Ant & Dec_sentence_49

Two SMTV VHS releases, compiling the best bits from both shows, were released in 2000 and 2001 respectively. Ant & Dec_sentence_50

Ant & Dec also starred in the children's TV series Engie Benjy during their time on SMTV. Ant & Dec_sentence_51

Ant & Dec made their permanent departure from children's television in 2001 after trying out formats like Friends Like These for BBC One in 2000 and Slap Bang with Ant & Dec for ITV in 2001 (which was basically SMTV in the evening even playing Challenge Ant against adults). Ant & Dec_sentence_52

They have since said that the main reason they left SMTV was because the Pop Idol live finals were due to begin on Saturday nights on ITV in December 2001. Ant & Dec_sentence_53

Primetime Ant & Dec_section_6

Ant & Dec's first primetime presenting job came in the form of BBC Saturday-night game show Friends Like These, which was first broadcast in 1999 and made them known as presenters- a shift change from their acting days. Ant & Dec_sentence_54

The duo presented four series of the programme between 1999 and 2001. Ant & Dec_sentence_55

In 2001, the duo's contract with ITV was renewed for a further three years, following their appearances on SMTV Live and CD:UK, and received their first primetime presenting job on the station, presenting brand new Saturday night reality series Pop Idol and down to this success they had to leave SMTV behind. Ant & Dec_sentence_56

Pop Idol was broadcast for only two series before was replaced in 2004 by The X Factor, to which former Smash Hits editor Kate Thornton was assigned presenting duties. Ant & Dec_sentence_57

In 2005, as part of the ITV's 50th birthday celebrations, they were back on television fronting Ant & Dec's Gameshow Marathon, a celebration of some of ITV's most enduring gameshows from the past 50 years. Ant & Dec_sentence_58

They hosted The Price Is Right, Family Fortunes, Play Your Cards Right, Bullseye, Take Your Pick! Ant & Dec_sentence_59 , The Golden Shot and Sale of the Century. Ant & Dec_sentence_60

In 2002, Ant & Dec created and presented their own show, entitled Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. Ant & Dec_sentence_61

The show has so far run for sixteen series, with the latest, including the 100th episode, airing in early 2018. Ant & Dec_sentence_62

The first series was not an overall success, but with the introduction of "Ant & Dec Undercover", "What's Next? Ant & Dec_sentence_63

", "Ant v Dec" and "Little Ant and Dec", the show became a hit. Ant & Dec_sentence_64

During the fourth series, Dec broke his arm, thumb and suffered a concussion whilst completing a challenge for the 'Ant vs. Dec' segment of the show. Ant & Dec_sentence_65

The incident involved learning how to ride a motorbike and jumping through a ring of fire. Ant & Dec_sentence_66

During the challenge, Dec failed to pull hard enough on the throttle of the bike, causing it to topple over and sending him flying through the air. Ant & Dec_sentence_67

The accident caused the pair to miss the Comic Relief charity telethon of 2005. Ant & Dec_sentence_68

In 2006, the first episode of series five saw the duo abseil down the side of the 22-storey high London Studios, where the show was filmed. Ant & Dec_sentence_69

Two DVDs, a best-bits book and a board game of the series were released during 2004. Ant & Dec_sentence_70

The show was rested after 2009 as Ant & Dec said they were running out of ideas and it became stale, as many of the popular features such as "Little Ant & Dec" and "Undercover" were dropped. Ant & Dec_sentence_71

Saturday Night Takeaway returned in 2013 and was a massive success; Ant & Dec resurrected previous hit features such as "Undercover", "Little Ant and Dec" (albeit with a new Little Ant and Dec) Win the Ads and Ant v Dec, with new host Ashley Roberts. Ant & Dec_sentence_72

They also brought in new features such as the Supercomputer, Vegas or Bust, the End of the show 'show' where Ant and Dec perform with an act such as Riverdance or an Orchestra, and "I'm a Celebrity, get out of my ear!" Ant & Dec_sentence_73

where they have an earpiece in a celebs ear and they tell them what to do while being filmed by secret cameras. Ant & Dec_sentence_74

The series was such a success that ITV recommissioned it for 2014 even before the 2013 series ended. Ant & Dec_sentence_75

A board game of the format was released in 2008. Ant & Dec_sentence_76

The last two episodes in 2018 saw Dec present them on his own after Ant stepped down from his TV commitments after he was involved in a road collision. Ant & Dec_sentence_77

In August 2002, Ant & Dec fronted I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!. Ant & Dec_sentence_78

They drew their highest viewing figures to date in February 2004: nearly 15 million tuned in to watch the third series. Ant & Dec_sentence_79

In May 2006, they were assigned to present coverage of the charity football match Soccer Aid. Ant & Dec_sentence_80

They were then invited back to present coverage of the second match in September 2008 but have been replaced by Dermot O'Leary from 2010 as the match clashed with Britain's Got Talent. Ant & Dec_sentence_81

In June 2006, they announced they had created a new game-show format for ITV, entitled PokerFace. Ant & Dec_sentence_82

The show featured members of the public gambling high stakes of money in an attempt to win the ultimate prize. Ant & Dec_sentence_83

The first series began airing on 10 July 2006, and was aired for seven consecutive nights. Ant & Dec_sentence_84

The second series was broadcast in early 2007, and saw a move to a prime-time Saturday slot. Ant & Dec_sentence_85

Ratings for the series fell to below 3.5 million, and the series was subsequently axed in March 2007. Ant & Dec_sentence_86

In April 2007, the duo signed a two-year golden handcuffs deal with ITV, reportedly worth £40 million, securing their career at the station until the end of 2009. Ant & Dec_sentence_87

In June 2007, they were offered the job of presenters on new ITV reality platform Britain's Got Talent by Simon Cowell. Ant & Dec_sentence_88

The series features contestants aiming to win £100,000 and spot on the bill at the Royal Variety Performance, while performing and being judged by Cowell, actress Amanda Holden and former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan. Ant & Dec_sentence_89

The series was highly successful, drawing in nearly 12 million viewers, and led to the pair continuing to operate as hosts for future series, along with continual appearances in a regular feature on the ITV2 spin-off show Britain's Got More Talent. Ant & Dec_sentence_90

But, similarly to Saturday Night Takeaway, the twelfth series saw Dec present the live shows on his own (despite them both presenting the auditions shows). Ant & Dec_sentence_91

The pair filmed a series of six episodes for a new American game show, Wanna Bet? Ant & Dec_sentence_92 , in November 2007. Ant & Dec_sentence_93

The episodes was broadcast in 2008, but failed to attract enough interest for a second series to be commissioned. Ant & Dec_sentence_94

What You Wrote, another format created by the duo, was due to air in Autumn 2008 but was reportedly axed by ITV. Ant & Dec_sentence_95

In 2010, the duo debuted a replacement for Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, entitled Ant & Dec's Push the Button. Ant & Dec_sentence_96

The series was a success albeit not in the same way as Saturday Night Takeaway, and a second run of the programme was broadcast in 2011 but Ant and Dec later dropped the show in favour of reviving Saturday Night Takeaway. Ant & Dec_sentence_97

Ant & Dec have also presented the game show Red or Black? Ant & Dec_sentence_98 , a creation of Cowell's, airing live on ITV in 2011 with a second series in 2012, but this was not a ratings success and was cancelled after the second series. Ant & Dec_sentence_99

On 24 December 2011, they presented ITV's charity initiative Text Santa with Holly Willoughby. Ant & Dec_sentence_100

In November 2016 the pair signed a new three-year deal with ITV estimated to be worth £30 million. Ant & Dec_sentence_104

In November 2019, "Ant and Dec's DNA Journey" aired, which followed the pair as they retraced their family roots through DNA samples. Ant & Dec_sentence_105

In the show they both found out that they have the same DNA marker, which means that Ant and Dec are related as distant cousins. Ant & Dec_sentence_106
