Presenters get ready to 'rhumble'? Survey reveals women fancy Dec more than Ant
Friday 12 April 2013
This could cause a rumble between two of TV's best friends - a survey has revealed women would rather bed Dec than Ant.
Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, both 37, have become familiar faces on television screens since they found fame on BBC children's show Byker Grove and host some of the country's biggest shows including Britain's Got Talent.
The pair, who also had a music career as PJ and Duncan, recently made it to number one after fans rushed to buy their 1994 hit Let's Get Ready To Rhumble after they performed the track on their Saturday Night Takeaway show.
The survey revealed 72% of the nation's women believe Dec would perform best in the bedroom, with one woman saying she thought he would be a "tiger between the sheets".
The research, which saw 4,000 women questioned, found more than three quarters thought Ant would make the best friend with 81% saying they would rather share a cup of tea and a chat with him.
When asked to choose their overall favourite between the TV duo, Dec was the ultimate winner, just pipping his pal to the post with 54 per cent of the vote.
Phil Dorrell, brand manager at Sweet'N Low which commissioned the poll, said: "Ant and Dec are well on their way to becoming national treasures, so it was interesting to see which of the two was the UK's favourite. Though Ant was a popular choice, it seems that British housewives ultimately wanted to see Dec on top."
