His tweeted: "I've had the loveliest of birthdays. I got a card from my 3 week old daughter, she's very advanced.

"Although her handwriting looks suspiciously like that of the dog (I suspect he wrote it really)."

"Anyhoo, thank you all for the lovely birthday messages, you’re bloody great D xx."

Dec received hundreds of birthday messages from both fans and his celebrity pals.

Ant, who is stepping away from his work commitments until 2019 to focus on his recovery following his drink-drive arrest in March, posted a hilarious throwback picture of his comedy partner.
