They may be apart right now, but Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have delighted fans with their latest news.

The presenting duo have announced they will be releasing a book later this year to celebrate 30 years of working in TV together.

'Ant & Dec: Once Upon A Tyne' will be released in September and it is the first time the pair have put pen to paper since their first autobiography more than a decade ago.

Announcing the news in a video on Instagram, the boy decided to have a bit of fun from their separate homes with a game of charades.

The presenters played a game to announce the news

They captioned the post: "Oh, what a charade! But we won’t give the game away here."

The Geordie pair continued: "A bit of news from our lockdowns to yours… this year we'll have been working together for 30 years (blimey!) and we're writing a book to mark the anniversary.

"Stories from our time on the telly (and that brief period of time when we were basically 90s pop sensations!).

"Excited for you to have a flick through… less excited for you to see the photos we're including, but we accidentally promised we'd put them in and there’s no backing out of that now!"

"Sending you all lots of love during these strange times x."

Ant and Dec have had to cut their hit series Saturday Night Takeaway short following the coronavirus outbreak.

They first presented the show without a live studio audience and then took the decision to finish the series early and spent last Saturday hosting the shows 'best bits' from each of their homes.
