Ant & Dec - Once Upon A Tyne (2nd Hand Softback)
Celebrating 30 years together, Ant & Dec look back on three decades in the spotlight, with the full behind-the-scenes story and never-before-seen photos of the shows that made them the nation's best loved stars
Ant : As the old Chinese proverb says, 'Good things come in pairs'.
Dec : And as another Chinese proverb says, 'If you've been in a double act with your best mate for thirty years, why not write a book about all your most memorable moments in three decades of showbusiness?'
Ant : Less catchy that one, isn't it?
Dec : But no less true. And after three decades together, we've written that book. Covering everything from a pirate radio storyline in Byker Grove through to the biggest shows on telly, this is our story.
Ant : Thirty years, eh? Amazing.
Dec : Absolutely. Especially when you consider we are both still 27 years old.
Ant and Dec hold a special place in the hearts of TV viewers everywhere. This is their epic story, with never-before-seen photography and the very best tales from their 30 years in TV.
From their modest beginnings in Byker Grove through to their "unique" time as pop stars and an award-laden TV career, those three decades have flown by in the blink of an eye.
They've also featured an incredible cast of supporting characters, including their first scriptwriter - (an unknown comedian called David Walliams), Saturday night fun and games with countless Hollywood A-listers, and celebrities they torture - sorry, work with - every year in the jungle. Told through the lens of every TV show they've made, as well as everything they've learnt along the way, this is the riotously funny journey of two ordinary lads from Newcastle who went on to achieve extraordinary things.

"Ant and Dec are just genuine blokes who found their calling at a young age. Meeting on the set of a kids TV show and becoming the best of friends. It's amazing that in 30 years their friendship has grown so strong and seeing their faces on TV every week never gets old. It was genuinely like sitting at a table listening to them tell the story as if they were right there."
