Ant & Dec: 'We never expected we'd be No. 1'

Ant and Dec, who are on course for their first number one single with “Let's Get Ready To Rhumble”, have revealed that they only performed the song “for a laugh” and to fill a gap on Saturday Night Takeaway.

The presenting pair told Daybreak the resurgence of the 1994 hit was “mad” and added that they “never expected it would be number one in the midweek charts”.

The duo told Daybreak that all the money received would go to the Childline charity.
