Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly shared some exciting news with fans this evening – they’ve been vaccinated!
They announced the news on their joint Instagram account, revealing that they had their first coronavirus jab.
At 45 years old, the Geordie icons became eligible for their jabs earlier this month.
The duo shared a collaged photo, with Ant on one side being injected and Dec on the other side wearing a mask and the pink, blue and purple vaccination sticker.
They shared the snaps with the simple caption ‘We’re jabbin’ #vaccinated‘, and a needle emoji.
By April 15, everybody over the age of 50, as well as the highly vulnerable, and health and social care workers, had received their first dose.
In the United Kingdom, over 45 million vaccine doses have been administered, with over 11 million of these being second doses.
By the end of July, the government claims to be ‘on track’ to provide a vaccine to all adults in the country.
Recently Ant and Dec’s family-friendly programme Saturday Night Takeaway came under fire after a string of jokes about Dec’s height and risqué remarks.
Ofcom received 96 complaints about the episode in March, with the television watchdog confirming they were about ‘a few different issues including the innuendos used and height jokes.’
The End of Show Show was packed with subtle digs at Dec’s expense, with singer Sting even branding the presenter ‘Stumpy’.
Elsewhere, Stephen Mulhern appeared on the stage on stilts and said: ‘Oh Dec, don’t get upset. I’ll cheer you up old buddy’, while Bear Grylls also mocked Dec’s size during a comedy sketch.
‘Have you come to rescue us?’ the presenter innocently asked, to which Bear responded: ‘No, this thing is way bigger than you!’
Without skipping a beat, Ant chimed in: ‘Well everything’s bigger than him’.
Saturday Night Takeaway continues on Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
