Ant & Dec Receive OBEs

Our favourite Geordie duo has done it again; for the 16th year in a row, they’ve picked up the award for Best TV Presenter at the National Television Awards. As well as this, their show Saturday Night Takeaway has been awarded Best Entertainment Show, and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here helped them to win the Best Challenge Show.

But, that’s not all – they’ve also received OBEs at Buckingham Palace for their services to entertainment and broadcasting, making this a year to remember for the pair!

Commenting on their achievement, Dec showed just how much this recognition meant to them:

“You don’t expect things like this to happen to lads like us from the west end of Newcastle, so it’s a huge honour.

We’re humbled and honoured and ecstatic about the whole thing. We hope it can inspire young people from backgrounds like ours that things like this do happen to us sometimes.

Put your head down and work hard and you can achieve what you want. You can end up in Buckingham Palace.”

If you want to see the pair in all their glory, you can watch them collecting their OBEs below.

Or, if that wasn’t enough, take a look at these pictures of them looking very pleased with themselves!
