Ant and Dec hope Benitez will stay at Newcastle

Ant and Dec are hopeful that Rafael Benitez will stay on as manager at Newcastle United next season.

The Geordie duo, who are lifelong Newcastle fans, believe the Spaniard is the right man to turn around the fortunes of the recently relegated Magpies.

Benitez had earlier claimed he would leave St James' Park if the club were relegated to the Championship but the Newcastle boss has since said a decision over his future could be made in the next few weeks.

Watch: Moment Dec arrives at church, shortly before his beautiful bride

Watched by dozens of cheering fans, ITV Stars And and Dec arrive at the church in Newcastle as Dec prepares to walk down the aisle.

Dec was driven to the church by his on-screen side kick, best friend - and of course best man - Ant McPartlin who jokingly revved the car's engine as his co-star stepped out to cheering fans.

The pair posed briefly for photographs; Dec looking relaxed and happy before making his way into the church.

Dec's older brother, who's a Priest, was waiting inside. He is marrying the couple in a particularly moving touch to their special day.

Shortly after, the bride arrived. Ali Astall, who's Dec's professional manager, stepped out of the bridal car and stunned the crowds in her beautiful, classic wedding dress, carrying a gorgeous bouquet.

She posed beneath the pretty flower arch before walking in to become Mrs Donnelly.

Stars at the ceremony in central Newcastle include Ben Shepherd, Rochelle and Marvin Humes, Keith Lemon, Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby, Phil Schofield and footballing legend Alan Shearer.
