Ant and Dec take over presenting duties on This Morning

They gatecrashed the show

Presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly caused a bit of a stir on This Morning earlier today as they gatecrashed the show and stunned hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

The reason Ant and Dec made a surprise appearance on the programme was to help Holly and Phil celebrate their 10th anniversary as hosts.

This Morning's presenters couldn't believe their eyes when the Britain Got Talent hosts arrived on set since they only expected to talk to them via video link.

Ant and Dec explained that they were on the programme to stage what they called a "takeover" and to let Holly and Phil sit back, relax and enjoy their incredible TV anniversary.

Holly was in complete shock as Ant and her former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! co-host, Dec, arrived in person as she struggled to say anything coherent.

Ant explained: "We have stormed the show and taken over the reins as we look back at ten years of one of the best British partnerships on television."

Dec then quipped: "One of. Other partnerships are available."

They then revealed that a whole host of This Morning friends were waiting in the studio to help them celebrate.
