Newcastle and England football legend Alan Shearer passed on his congratulations to Ant and Dec who picked up their OBEs at Buckingham Palace today.
Keen eyed social media users went into a mini-meltdown earlier at the unfamiliar sight of the Geordie duo stood in reverse order.
People receiving their awards were arranged in alphabetical order based on their surname, meaning Declan Donnelly was placed ahead of Ant McPartlin.
Something which also surprised Shearer, who had expected the TV presenters to collect their honours together.

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.
