Ant and Dec crowned celeb pair with best friendship

Ant and Dec have been crowned the celebrity pair with the best friendship.

The dynamic duo have beaten an extensive list of all-star partnerships - including the likes of This Morning's Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield - in a recent survey conducted by Thomas & Friends, the brand franchise behind Thomas the Tank Engine.

However, it's hardly surprising they've nabbed the crown as they've been friends for over 25 years and are still going strong now - even presenting "Britain's Got Talent", "Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway" and "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" together.

Ant said they first formed a friendship when they were both cast in "Byker Grove" as they shared a mutual love for Newcastle United and films.

Dec said: "We'd never met before but the two characters became friends so ultimately we would be hanging around on set waiting for our scenes to be done or hanging out in the Green Room, or sitting next to each other when we were getting tutored."

Ant added in a recent interview: "We then got to be in scenes together and honestly it was sat there talking about Newcastle United and the games and who our favourite players were and who we didn't like - it's the same chat as we have now to be honest, 25 years on - that's how we bonded really."

Meanwhile, they may not have managed to make the top spot but Holly and Phil did come in quite high as they followed swiftly behind in second place, while the blonde beauty's friendship with Fearne Cotton secured the third position.
