Celebrity birthdays: Ant McPartlin turns 39

by hellomagazine.com Happy birthday Ant McPartlin! As the British presenter turns 39, HELLO! Online takes a look at what the stars have in store for Ant and you...

This is what Ant, who is a Scorpio, can be expecting today:

Why do some people support a particular sporting team or political party? Or prefer a certain radio station? It may be partly to do with tradition, with formative childhood experiences or with some discovery made in a sudden moment of enlightenment that has since become a lifelong loyalty. Yet do we actually always appreciate every game that a team plays? Every policy that a party promotes? Every record that a station plays? In questioning an aspect of an organisation now, you are not automatically cutting yourself off from it.

Ant McPartlin


Ant McPartlin is best known for being one half of the 'Ant and Dec' duo - the kings of the small screen.

The Newcastle-born lads began their careers on popular teen soap Byker Grove, and after establishing a charismatic TV presence, the gregarious Geordies went on to pursue a music career as PJ & Duncan.

Now, however, their singles are routinely mocked by the pair, as they shed their gawky teen image and became the dynamic duo that we know and love today.

Ant began his presenting career with Dec at SMTV Live, where they were joined by Cat Deeley to present the hit comic children’s show Wonky Donkey. When they left the award-winning programme in 2001, tears were shed by many a child, but not long after the pair was offered their first prime time slot, presenting Pop Idol.

Since then, Ant and Dec have presented shows including I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, Britain’s Got Talent and Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Together with his partner in crime, Ant has won eleven National Television Awards for Best Presenter, as well as scoring a Lifetime Achievement Award at the age of just 27.

Ant married long-term make-up artist Lisa Armstrong in 2006 at Cliveden Hotel in Buckinghamshire.
