Ant’s birthday message to Dec is exactly why we love them so much

Ant's birthday message

Roll on November when they’re back on our screens.

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are a hugely successful duo but aside from that, they’re great friends too.

Earlier this year, Ant entered rehab seeking treatment for “substance abuse, prescription drugs, and drinking” after a knee operation went wrong, leaving him in severe pain.

Unsurprisingly, his long-time colleague Declan Donnelly was one of the first people to offer his support at the time, sending a touching message to thank fans.

Today, Ant was on Twiter for a very important reason, to wish his buddy a happy birthday and in typical Ant & Dec fashion, there had to be a joke included too.

“Happy birthday to the little fella from the ever so slightly taller fella!!xxxx #bigdonsbday”.

This message comes a few weeks after Ant returned to Twitter for the first time since leaving rehab, with a huge thank you for his many fans.

The popular TV presenters return to our screens to present the new series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here in November and we can’t wait.
