Book Description

This is the book everyone has been waiting for: national heroes Ant and Dec, Britain's most successful television duo, have invited their millions of fans into their world. From youth clubs to blind school, pubs to jungles, there's a wealth of behind-the-scenes anecdotes that have never been told until now. Ant and Dec met when they were thirteen on the set of Byker Grove in Newcastle. They didn't warm to each other immediately, but soon enough they became best mates and have been inseparable both on and off screen ever since. Bad rap, stunts going wrong, schoolboy pranks and off-screen antics are just some of the experiences they write about in this wonderfully entertaining memoir, full of vivid observations, colourful reminiscence and charming digressions, Ooh! What a Lovely Pair will give millions of fans an insight into the genuine intimacy and refreshing sense of humour that the two TV icons share.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Ghost writing here!! 16 Feb. 2014
By m lyons
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this book. You could here their voices from the pages. They both told their story chapter by chapter in different fonts, and once you got used to that it was a great and unusual way to share their experiences. How I got my head around this was, the wriggly writing was ant(ant wiggling around) and the straight up writing was Dec!! They were so focused on being successful in show business, and worked so hard for it, they really deserve the fame and fortune they both have earned. They come across as the boys next door and 2 you would love to have to dinner.They love their families and I just dont think anyone could seriously dislike them. Unusual enough in show business I would say! This does not make them goodie goodies because they have a very good time and love their pints, some very funny stories around their pint drinking!!!!! Would have loved to have heard a bit of gossip about some of the big stars they meet but overall a very funny book and a great read written very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Loveable Duo and Fun Read 21 April 2010
Ant and Dec: How can you not love these cheeky, loveable Geordie lads. Ooh! What A Lovely Pair: Our Story is a thoroughly enjoyable, engaging and entertaining account of their lives up to now, welcomingly injected with a good, refreshing sense of humour. What you see is what you get with these guys; they don't take themselves too seriously as some other self-obsessed celebrities blatantly do, have remained down to earth, both coming from working class backgrounds and are nothing but honest and frank throughout.

As well as chronicling their early life, they then recount their treasured time together spent on the hit BBC kids series Byker Grove (which I was totally hooked on as a kid in the late 80's/early 90's), meeting for the first time when they were both at the tender age of 13. And as the synopsis suggests they didn't warm to each other immediately like some may think, but it wasn't long before they became best buddies and have been virtually inseperable ever since.

After their stint as PJ and Duncan in Byker Grove then came their short-lived pop career, certainly notching up impressive sales for their string of singles and albums - although they've never quite been able to live down "Let's Get Ready To Rhumble"! LOL! They aren't averse to taking the mickey out of themselves and literally ridicule themselves in the book when it comes to writing about their stint as pop stars, both regarding it as a bit of a joke. It had obviously been a money-making ploy for the record company, cashing in and capitilising on Ant and Dec's (still) huge popularity with the teen market. They also recite that at nearly every function they attend today they often get called upon to perform "Let's Get Ready To Rhumble", much to their embarrasment (and annoyance).

I love reading autobiographies so I was really looking forward to this book.
I read this really quickly and laughed most of the way through it.
I think these two are fantastic and their life story up to now is brilliant .

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book I have Read!!! 29 Dec. 2009
I am a massive fan of Ant and Dec and wanted this book right from the moment I heard about it! I pre-ordered it a few months before it came out and it came before the time it said it was going to come. I started reading it and was amazed at how glued I was to it! It's full of laughs and jokes but it also has the serious parts of their lives. I was constantly laughing out loud or going 'awww'! Its very conversational as Ant's writing is in italics and Dec's is in bold, when you're reading it it's just as if Ant and Dec are in front of you talking! You get a brilliant insight on their lives and on how they have got to where they are now. There is a wide range of pictures in the book from when they were little and from all the shows they have done and it's great to relate the pictures to what you've read. I'm not a big reader but I really couldn't put this book down! I have now read this book about 3 times since I got it and it never gets boring. It's a must have for any Ant and Dec fans! A big well done to Ant and Dec on this great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ant & Dec 7 Feb. 2010
This is a very well written book and Ant and Dec have proved that they can be just as entertaining in a book as they can be on the TV. This book is a great insight into the lives of the famous pair and it includes every detail of their life from the day they were kids in school to the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent last year. This book is also hilarious I have never read a book before that has made me laugh out loud like this one. There are some very funny moments and some very cringe worthy moments and the way they describe them makes you feel like you we there with them and experienced it with them.
Overall this is a fantastic read and people should ignore the negative reviews this has received because by no means is this book not enjoyable.
Ant and Dec thank their fans throughout this book but I want to thank Ant and Dec for giving us this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldnt't put it down! 23 Sept. 2009
I started reading this last night and couldnt put it down! Its funny, well written and gives a great insight into Ant & Dec. Living in Newcastle I could also identify with all the places they talked about which made it even more interesting. Dec's part is written in bold type and Ant's in italics (which I found a bit hard on the eye at times), its just like they are having a chat with each other. Great stuff, highly recommended!
