Dec Donnelly joins This Country star for hilarious duet

He belted out an old PJ & Duncan classic!

Ever woken up after a night out to discover pictures and videos on your phone that you didn’t remember taking?

Bet they didn’t feature Declan Donnelly!

That’s what happened to This Country star Charlie Cooper after he attended the TV Baftas on Sunday evening.

The comic and his sister Daisy May were nominated for their BBC mockumentary about two cousins growing up in a Cotswold village.

After the event, Charlie shared a video with his Twitter followers, writing: “Woke up and found this on my phone.”

The video shows Daisy with her arm around Dec in the empty auditorium swaying and singing to ‘Eternal Love’.

The song was a hit for the presenter and Ant McPartlin back in the Nineties, when they were still known as their Byker Grove characters, PJ and Duncan.

A smiling Dec, 42, gamely sings along to his old track while Charlie can be heard from behind the camera pitching in to repeat some of the lyrics, Ant-style.

“Brilliant,” said many, while others said it was “hilarious”.

Others suggested Daisy’s character Kerry could be a temporary replacement for Ant while he takes time off work.

“I want her to present I’m A Celeb with Dec, it would be amazing,” said one.

“Kerry n Dec, new double act,” said another.

“Daisy and Duncan! Perfect,” wrote a third.

In the video, Daisy can be seen in character, wearing a red Swindon football club dress, which earned her a place on many of the worst dressed lists to her brother’s amusement.

But the actress had the last laugh as she picked up the award for Best Female Comedy Performance.

This Country also won Best Scripted Comedy.
