Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly aren't just colleagues and best mates, they're also the only plus ones each other need.

The Geordie duo arrived together at the BAFTA TV Awards 2019, looking dapper as can be.

They were reunited on the red carpet for the first time since Ant's return to the limelight following his drink-drive charge and subsequent break from television.

The best pals are up for three gongs at the ceremony; Entertainment Performance and Entertainment Programme for Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and Reality & Constructed Factual for I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The lads chatted to BBC Radio 1's Clara Amfo on the red carpet.

When asked if it felt good to be reunited on the red carpet, Dec said: "It always does, we love BAFTA, it's such a fun day, but yes, it's nice to be back on the red carpet isn't it?"

Ant added: "Yes, it's nice to be back on the red carpet."

Ant also confessed that getting ready for a bash like the BAFTAs was much easier for men than it is for women.

He said: "It's easy for men, isn't it, that's the thing. It takes a very funny looking man to not look good in a tuxedo."

Ant and Dec were also asked to share the secret to their success.

Dec said: "We've been around for a long time, we've been here for ages so people are just used to us.

"We're familiar," Ant added. "Like a comfy settee. You know what you're getting."

Ant said he's hoping to see Bodyguard win an award tonight, while Dec is backing Killing Eve for a victory.

They said they're big telly fans.
