In the clip, Dec said: “Bit of an announcement today but rather than just doing it straight, I thought we could have a bit of fun with it by playing a game of charades.”

Dec then did an action, as Ant shouted: “A book!”

Dec said: “Very good,” as she started to do other actions.

After multiple guesses, Ant couldn’t get it right and Dec said: “Forget it.

“What I was trying to say was this year, me and Ant would have been celebrating 30 years working together.

Ant said: “You can’t talk during charades,” to which Dec told him: “Shut up!”

The caption read: “A bit of news from our lockdowns to yours… this year we’ll have been working together for 30 years (blimey!) and we’re writing a book to mark the anniversary.

“Stories from our time on the telly (and that brief period of time when we were basically 90s pop sensations!).

“Excited for you to have a flick through… less excited for you to see the photos we’re including, but we accidentally promised we’d put them in and there’s no backing out of that now!
