Ant and Dec are back on our screens as another series of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! is well under way. While the ingestion of live insects and obscure body-parts of exotic animals by some very vaguely familiar faces will be taking centre stage as usual, a vast number of viewers will have their eyes on the rather unpredictable receding hairlines of the show’s cheeky presenting duo.
When the double-act were last on air, it was as co-hosts of the springtime TV event Britain’s Got Talent. It was during this run of the show that several newspapers ran reports that viewers were “confused” by Dec’s hair as his hairloss appeared to have recovered somewhat.
Dec – full name Declan Donnelly – had been sporting thinning hair for the past few years – and at the age of 34, this was no surprise. In the last series of Britain’s Got Talent, however, Dec appears to have undergone some hair growth.In contrast, his partner Anthony McPartlin, who has always been known for his high widow’s peak, has seen his hairline recede as well without any obvious signs of regrowth.
