‘Shocked & incredibly honoured’: Ant & Dec awarded OBEs!
Overwhelmed and over the moon, the boys are celebrating OBEs for services to Broadcasting and Entertainment!
“We are both shocked, but incredibly honoured to receive OBEs,” they said on hearing the news.
“We absolutely love what we do and have done since we started out aged 13. We are very passionate about the shows we present and we were especially honoured this year to host both The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration and the 40 Years of the Princes Trust documentary.
“What we do also allows us to work with some amazing charities that really do make a difference.
“2016 has been a fantastic year so far, and we're so grateful for all the support we receive.
“We are just two ordinary lads from the west end of Newcastle. We hope us receiving this honour can inspire young people to chase their dreams and believe that anything is possible.
“This will definitely be the proudest our mams have ever been!”
What a day… what a year!
And what more can we say… A monumental CONGRATULATIONS to the boys!!
