Declan Donnelly and Ali Astall have confirmed their baby is due in September.

The "Britain's Got Talent" co-host admitted he and his wife are "very excited" about becoming parents, and they "can't wait" to meet their little one.

He said: "I just wish it would come out now, that we could fast-forward to having the baby.

"We want to get on with it - we can't wait."

"I'm so tired - I need to get him home now."

Dec took to the stage with "BGT" judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon to collect the prize, but his co-presenter Ant McPartlin was not in attendance at the ceremony, just weeks after he admitted to having "alcohol and emotional issues" after being convicted of drink-driving.

Ant will not be co-hosting the programme's live shows with Dec, and Amanda admitted he will be "missed", but hinted she could co-present some of the segments with the "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!" frontman.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz backstage at the TV BAFTAs, she said: "I think he will be missed but I think Dec will do a sterling job.

"Alesha and I are on hand to step in.

"Mand and Dec has a good ring to it actually."

"BGT" beat off competition from "Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway" to scoop the gong.
