Geordie TV hosts Ant and Dec have secured their first number one single today - 17 years after their chart career came to an end.

The duo prompted a download dash for their 1994 hit Let's Get Ready To Rhumble after performing the track on their Saturday Night Takeaway show last weekend.

Their re-entry into the singles chart went straight to number one, knocking The Saturdays' What About Us featuring Sean Paul off the top stop.

Presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly say they will donate the profits to Childline.
