Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway is back for another exciting series, and on the 8th March 2015 the SUPERCOMPUTER is coming to Gateshead for the first time.

The Supercomputer is on the road looking for hidden talents and party tricks, and anyone can go along to see if they have what it takes.

Organisers say they want to see hopefuls dressed to impress when they display their hidden talents.

A lucky few will be in the running for a chance to win two tickets to New York - but they have to impress the computer first!.

Ant & Dec's Supercomputer wil be at the Metrocentre from 9am for the morning session and from 2pm for the afternoon session.

Dec reveals he proposed at sunset on Oz beach

Dec proposed to his girlfriend Ali Astall on an Australian beach at sunset, on a holiday before the latest series of I'm A Celebrity...

He waited until the last night of their trip to the Hayman Islands, on the Great Barrier Reef in November.

Of course, his best friend and the other half of the famous Geordie Duo, Ant McPartlin, knew what he was planning, and says he can't wait to be best man.

He will reveal details of the night he popped the question on The Jonathan Ross Show tonight.

I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to do it so I took the ring with me and I was looking for the opportunity to do it and it was beautiful out there, we were on the Great Barrier Reef and we had a wonderful hotel and it was stunning everywhere but I just didn’t quite know how I was going to do it.

It got to the last evening and we’d organised dinner on the beach and we went round to one side of the island, the only place on the island where you can see the sun set, and we just went round and we watched the sunset go down and we did it there, it was lovely.

Ant says he is looking forward to his Best Man duties.

He was Best Man for me, I’ve been married eight years now.

His speech was very good, very funny so I’ve got a lot to get him back with!

The Jonathan Ross Show is on ITV tonight at 9:20pm

TV royalty Ant and Dec are joining up with the real thing for a new documentary about the work of the Prince's Trust.

The Geordie duo will spend time with the Prince of Wales as the trust gears up to its 40th anniversary in 2016.

The result will be a 90-minute ITV special shown next year.

Ant and Dec are both ambassadors of the trust and say they are 'hugely excited' to be working with Prince Charles on the 'first project of this kind.'

We've worked with The Prince's Trust for years and know what an incredible job they do of supporting young people right across the UK. This is a unique opportunity for us to get under the skin of a great organisation and its founder, to pose the questions we've always wanted to ask and to see the achievements of the young people celebrated.

– Ant & Dec

The trust, launched by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1976, works with people aged 13 to 30 struggling with school or unemployment.

We are delighted to be following The Prince's Trust over a year to celebrate this landmark occasion.

This special programme will see Ant and Dec spending time throughout the year with the Prince and seeing at close hand the work he does within the trust aimed at enhancing young people's lives up and down the country.

This promises to be a major event in the schedule and a real treat for our viewers.

Donnelly, who has won the National Television Awards Most Popular Entertainment Presenter ten times alongside McPartlin, has dated TV presenter Georgie Thompson and actress Clare Buckfield in the past.

Talking about their relationship previously, Donnelly admitted it was "a little strange" when the couple first got together because they had been work colleagues for so long, but said: "It's going good. Everything's hunky-dory."
