This is their epic story, with never-before-seen photography and the very best tales from their 30 years on TV. Although restrictions have eased and life is gradually returning to a new kind of normal, we know things are very tough for many children. It didn't disappoint. It was so fun I stayed on my bed the whole day to focus on listening/reading. I could've finished it earlier but I have to stop a lot of times and watch the clips they're talking about, and sometimes, I have to watch it like 2-3 times because it's that good.

What the NSPCC say about Ant and Dec’s Propa Happy

From their modest beginnings in 'Byker Grove' through through to their 'unique' time as pop stars and an award-laden TV career, those three decades have flown by in the blink of an eye. They've also featured an incredible cast of supporting characters, including their first scriptwriter - (an unknown comedian called David Walliams), Saturday night fun and games with countless Hollywood A-listers and celebrities they torture - sorry, work with - every year in the jungle. Told through the lens of every TV show they've made, as well as everything they've learnt along the way, this is the riotously funny journey of two ordinary lads from Newcastle who went on to achieve extraordinary things. Ant and Dec both met each other whilst working on the BBC's children's TV drama Byker Grove. Still at the age of 13 they became the best of friends, although at first they didn't really think much of each other! We thought it would be a shame to waste this period of reflection and set about writing a book to mark the anniversary. It has, until now involved a lot of tea (green for me, builders for Ant), chocolate biscuits and laughter. Harrison, Ellie (12 November 2019). "Ant and Dec discover they are cousins in DNA Journey documentary". The Independent . Retrieved 22 October 2023. In this final period of writing it is mostly video calls with dogs on our knees, but still trying to make each other laugh – which in essence is what we’ve spent the last 30 years doing!”
