Ant and Dec on being 'replaced' by Jedward

Thursday November 26, 2009

Judge Louis Walsh was one of the first to proclaim X Factor twins John and Edward Grimes have the potential to be the "new Ant and Dec".

But what do the original duo, Declan Donnelly and Ant McPartlin, feel about such comments?

During an interview in Australia where they are currently filming I'm A Celebrity…, the TV personalities opened up.

"I keep getting texts saying, 'Jedward are the new And and Dec.' And rather worryingly, alot are from my girlfriend Georgie," says Dec.

In response, Ant went on to say, "She's right. Two years time, Jedward will be presenting and I'll be a contestant, crying my eyes out in the Bush Telegraph."

"But hopefully people aren't finished with the old Ant and Dec just yet. We've got a few years left haven't we?…Haven't we?"

Having just signed a new two-year contract with ITV, its safe to say that the boys will not be fading from our screens just yet.
