Why Everyone’s Still Talking About Ant & Dec’s BAFTA Antics

Ant and Dec are pretty popular, no? 

We guess that’s an understatement.

This Geordie duo never fail to get people talking, whether they’re doing what they do best (we’re looking at you, Saturday Night Takeaway) or waltzing down the red carpet of yet another awards show.

That’s what happened at the weekend. And it was all down to Ant McPartlin’s face. Well, to be precise, his new beard. 

>Before and after: Ant’s beard sure makes a difference…

Ant debuted his new face fuzz on the red carpet of this year’s BAFTA TV Awards, and it’s safe to say that it pretty much broke Twitter. 

Accompanied by his wife of ten years, Lisa Armstrong, the 40-year-old looked suave in his tux, and co-host Declan Donnelly (of course) wasn’t too far behind. 

As soon as he appeared on screen, Twitter erupted. 

One fan wrote, ‘Never understood how people get Ant and Dec mixed up. At least they can tell the difference now Dec has grown a beard’.

LOL. We think you meant Ant there… 



Other tweets included: ‘lovin’ the beard Ant, it’s a keeper’ and ‘Ant grows a beard don’t know how to act’ [sic].

Another pointed out, ‘Ant’s beard… There’s only one thing for it… Dec needs to grow a beard too to see who’s hotter…’ 

Um. We’d be totally up for playing judge on that one.
