Fans celebrate the on-screen return of Ant and Dec

The presenting duo returned for the new series of Britain's Got Talent.

Fans celebrated the reunion of presenting pair Ant and Dec as Britain’s Got Talent returned.

Ant McPartlin took a break from TV and his long-term partnership with Declan Donnelly following a drink-driving conviction last year.

Holly Willoughby stepped in to replace McPartlin on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! earlier this year.

But now the Newcastle natives are back together on TV screens, to the relief of BGT fans.

Supporters of the presenting duo were moved by their on-screen reunion, and took to Twitter to share their feelings.

Calli Kitson posted: “Ant and Dec are back. The country is coming back together piece by piece.”

Her views were echoed by Lucy Lincoln, who wrote: “It is just so nice to see Ant and Dec on telly together again.”

Linda Coffin had the same reaction, writing: “Good to see Ant and Dec back together.”

Elisha Phillips said: “I’m so happy Ant is back on BGT. Ant and Dec are my fave.”

They were joined in their celebrations by many online, who were pleased to see the pair return to ITV, alongside show judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.

The duo won the National Television Award for best presenter in January, despite their period apart.
