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.

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!

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 don't normally read autobios, but as someone who has grown up alongside Ant and Dec I was fascinated to see what they'd gone through to become the kings of TV. I really enjoyed the writing style, switching between each of them to tell their stories in a funny, friendly, and very frank manner. They come across as a great couple of guys and they've lived really interesting lives, if you like them on TV you'll really enjoy the book.

If you like Ant and Dec, you'll like this book and then like Ant and Dec even more. The autobiography doesnt give much life story but concentrates on their fabulous relationship and career. The book has two fonts , ordinary and italic, one for each author to save confusion. I enjoyed reading the book.

This was my first book on kindle with pictures. Don,t think I will get another as it is a bit awkward at times. However it was a nice book. I Don,t think I learned anymore about them than I knew already.

This is a brilliant book that gives you an insight into the lives of Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly. It's humorous, inspiring and I did not stop laughing all the way through. The only bit that confused me was that Dec took lead through book when I expected it to be Ant. But I highly recommend it to any Ant and Dec fans or to anyone who has an interest in how two young boys from Newcastle went through being actors, pop stars to presenters, and what goes on behind their cheeky grins!

I absolutely loved reading this book. Being born in the 80's I grew up with Ant and Dec and found this book to be a great trip down memory lane with quite a few interesting secrets thrown in. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
