The Mirror reports that Dec, 43, and Ali, 40 –  parents to daughter Isla, nearly 1 – attended a bash in London in aid of children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.

The happy couple looked smart and relaxed as they joined celeb pals at the Very British Affair auction at Claridge’s.

Also joining them at the bash was This Morning’s Holly Willoughby and Loose Women’s Christine Lampard.

Holly looked stunning in a plunging trouser suit while her hubby Dan Baldwin looked dapper in silvery grey.

It was only last week that Ant and Dec caused a bit of a stir on This Morning when they gatecrashed the show and stunned hosts Holly 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.

The busy pair have also revealed that they have started work on the next series of Saturday Night Takeaway.

Ater his 2018 arrest for drink-driving, Ant returned to work on Saturday Night Takeaway.

Following his arrest in March last year, the popular show was taken off air for a week, before his presenting partner Declan Donnelly was forced to host the rest of the series alone.

Sharing a picture to Instagram, the TV host – who is in the middle of a lengthy divorce battle with ex-wife Lisa Armstrong – said he was “excited” to be back.
