Ant & Dec are not an act. They are real. I know that might seem a bit weird thing to say at the start of an article, but there are countless times you might come across an actor, presenter or singer who has a different personality entirely when they are performing. Ant & Dec are the same. The goddamn same. And they are glorious.
As they're friends as much off-screen as on-screen, and with Saturday Night Takeaway back this week, we made them take the BFF test. And my god it was great.
You can watch them take the test here:
