Ant & Dec

So, Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are currently on course to have the coveted Easter number one single this weekend, with a song they originally released nineteen years ago, ‘Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble’. As previously reported, the boost in sales comes after the duo reprised their past life as pop duo PJ & Duncan with a performance on their ITV show ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’ last weekend.

So far this week, the single has shifted over 46,000 units, and the duo have announced that they will donate all royalties received to Childline. Ant told the Official Charts Company: “‘Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble’ kinda changed everything for us. Though I never thought we’d be performing it nineteen years later on a Saturday night TV show! People are still buying the track, so we’ve just decided that any money we make out of it will be put towards Childline”.
