Ant and Dec talk buying Christmas gifts

Ant and Dec have been friends and colleagues for so long that they accidentally bought each other identical Christmas presents.

The duo got each other a games console that can be used to play video games on an iPad last year after seeing it during a trip to New York.

Dec said “I remember seeing it and thinking Ant would like that and I would like one myself.

“And we ended up buying it for each other. We did laugh a lot when we realised.”

Ant and Dec are joining others including This Morning’s Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby to host the Christmas charity show Text Santa next month.

The show raises money for charities including Bardardo’s and the British Heart Foundation.

Viewers will see Pogues singer Shane MacGowan team up with the Coronation Street cast for a song, Fairytale of Weatherfield, and a special version of Take Me Out for the over-50s.

Dec admitted that presenting the show can be emotional.

He said: “When you hear some of the stories, they really do make your heart ache.

“I do well up. Most of us are having a really good time with family and friends at Christmas, but not everyone is as lucky and so it is a really nice thing to be able to help people at that time of year.”
