The Queen and Sir David Attenborough hailed by viewers as "the new Ant and Dec"!

The pair of 91-year-olds featured on ITV special last night

Move aside, Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly. There's a new TV duo in town... none other than Her Majesty the Queen and Sir David Attenborough!

Viewers are hailing the unlikely pair as "the new Ant and Dec" and even called for them to host the next series of Saturday Night Takeaway, despite both being 91 years old.

They appeared together on ITV documentary The Queen's Green Planet last night, and their on-screen chemistry was an instant hit with viewers.

Viewers flooded Twitter with praise for the duo's relaxed rapport as they chatted about everything from climate change and the future of planet Earth to conkers during their walk around the royal grounds.

Sir David said on last night's programme: "Trees have been a part of the Queen's life, all of her life. Now, she wants to make sure that they're a part of ours."
