Ant & Dec

Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, better known as Ant & Dec, are the popular presenters of Britain's Got Talent, whose presence on any primetime TV show seems to ensure success. Their easy Geordie banter sets a mood that viewers seem to love – despite the fact they both started their careers as actors.

The pair first caught the public's eye on children's TV show Byker Grove and had a short outing as a pop duo, but it was their presenting skills that have brought them fame and fortune.

Pop Idol, the precursor to The X Factor, was their first big break after which the credits began to roll in. Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway followed from 2002 to 2009, then I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here in 2002 and Britain's Got Talent in 2007.

Reality TV seems to be their forte, although there have been many one off presenting jobs where their natural charm and repartee have been employed to draw in the viewers.
