Ant and Dec already fail at new social media break with anniversary tweet
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly had announced a break from social media for the summer ahead of the return of Britain’s Got Talent in the Autumn
The double act announced their intended absence from social media earlier today (August 1).
The pair tweeted from their official joint account that they would take a step back before returning to the limelight this Autumn for new instalments of Britain’s Got Talent.
They tweeted: “We’re both taking a break for a few weeks to spend time with family and friends.
“Wishing everyone a great month and we’ll see you at the end of August!”
However, it didn’t take very long for the pair to tweet again from the account a mere eight hours later!
In a message clearly from Dec himself, the account tweeted: “PS. Thanks for all the anniversary wishes for me and Mrs D. 5 years today. [Blowing kiss emoji, heart emoji]”.
Dec is, of course, referring to the five-year-anniversary of his marriage to the duo’s manager, Ali Astall.
The pair became engaged in 2014 following a year-long relationship.
Dec and Ali married in 2015 in a ceremony officiated by Dec’s brother, Father Dermott Donnelly.
Ali gave birth to their daughter Isla Elizabeth Anne in September 2018.
Naturally, the pair’s fans took to the replies section to congratulate the couple.
One fan tweeted: “you’re very welcome dec! hope you’ve both had a gorgeous day with each other and little isla Xx @antanddec “.
Another admirer of the duo wrote: “Hope you have had a wonderful anniversary. Love to you both and Isla. Enjoy your break. Love Sally x”.
Meanwhile, a different follower commented: “5 years !!! Blimey that’s gone quick. Congratulations!!! Have a lovely day.”
Elsewhere, another person tweeted to Dec: “Happy anniversary Dec & Ali. I hope you have had a lovely day together xx”.
Finally, one Ant and Dec devotee concluded: “Happy anniversary hope u both had a lovely day have a nice night both of you sending lots of love big hugs stay safe take care x”.
We hope the couple enjoyed their joyous day!
