The new book is an autobiography which takes a look at the I’m A Celeb and SMTV Live hosts career, which this year hits a huge milestone, as the pair celebrate 30 years of working and being on the telly together.
“Ant: As the old Chinese proverb says, ‘Good things come in pairs’.
Dec: And as another Chinese proverb says, ‘If you’ve been in a double act with your best mate for thirty years, why not write a book about all your most memorable moments in three decades of showbusiness?’
Ant: Less catchy that one, isn’t it?
Dec: But no less true. And after three decades together, we’re writing that book. Covering everything from a pirate radio storyline in Byker Grove through to the biggest shows on telly, this is our story.
Ant: Thirty years, eh? Amazing.
Dec: Absolutely. Especially when you consider we are both still 27 years old.
Ant and Dec hold a special place in the hearts of TV viewers everywhere. This is their epic story, with never-before-seen photography and the very best tales from their 30 years in TV.
From their modest beginnings in Byker Grove through to their “unique” time as pop stars and an award-laden TV career, those three decades have flown by in the blink of an eye.
They’ve also featured an incredible cast of supporting characters, including their first scriptwriter (an unknown comedian called David Walliams), Saturday night fun and games with countless Hollywood A-listers, and celebrities they torture – sorry, work with – every year in the jungle.
Told through the lens of every TV show they’ve made, as well as everything they’ve learnt along the way, this is the riotously funny journey of two ordinary lads from Newcastle who went on to achieve extraordinary things.
As a way to commemorate the achievement and to promote the book Ant and Dec are doing a live stream where they will chat about their career, all profits from the sale of tickets for the live stream will go towards The Princes Trust, a charity which Ant and Dec have been patrons and supporters of for a number of years now.
They presented a documentary to celebrate 40 years of the charity which helps young people between the ages of 11-30 gain access to jobs, training and education.
In Conversation with Ant and Dec will take place on 11 September, at 18:30 UK time. you can find out more info and get tickets here.
