Ant & Dec Talk 'Takeaway on Tour'

Ant & Dec on LorraineAnt and Dec have revealed on ITV’s Lorraine, that it’s a family affair when they hit the road for the Saturday Night Takeaway Tour, kicking off tonight in Cardiff. Chatting to Dan Wootton, the TV duo revealed;

“Yeah they come [Ant’s wife and Dec’s girlfriend], the dogs come, yeah, it’s kinda all of us on the road which is nice and we’re looking forward to that. It’s nice to take a little bit of home with you.”

Asking Ant if he is relieved he doesn’t have to look after Dec now the 38 year old is settled with
girlfriend Ali Astall, Ant told Dan;

“I quite liked being his wingman, that was quite good fun back in the day! All those days are gone now!”

As Dec exclaimed;

“He never looked after me anyway!”

Proud to finally be performing in some of the biggest venues in the UK, Ant admitted that their previous
pop career probably wasn’t going to lead to a tour on this scale - saying;

“Good thing is we were never big enough to play arenas when we were PJ and Duncan, so all these years later, look we finally made it with an arena tour!”

Talking about the physicality of the tour, Dec revealed they have had to put in some extra training to get ready, saying

“We’ve been working out in the gym and doing a bit of boot camp to get fitter for this because we
started doing the first day… they got the rope ladders out, we tried to climb them, we got about four rungs up and went ‘Oh my God - we’re not fit enough!’”

As Ant added;

“I’ve fractured toes and stuff and you’ve [Dec] had shin splints!”
