Ant and Dec’s DNA Journey

This two-part special follows the UK’s best loved duo as they embark on a surprisingly emotional journey of discovery in Ant & Dec’s DNA Journey. 

Viewers see Ant and Dec navigate a tougher terrain than the Australian jungle. Guided by expert genealogists and historians, the pair follow their maternal and paternal blood lines using their DNA to search their ancestral history.    

As their travels take them to Ireland and the US (even The United Nations Headquarters!), the pair not only delve into their past but also meet relatives they had no clue even existed, unveiling some truly shocking revelations that only their DNA could unlock.

As Ant & Dec embark on their journey, viewers are treated to a rare and personal glimpse into this truly remarkable friendship with their warmth and infectious humour that has not only captured the nation over the years, but has seen them achieve huge success resulting in a multitude of awards and accolades.  


This documentary captured Ant and Dec at an intersection in their lives. I feel sure the ITV viewers will be on the edge of their seats watching twists and turns of their DNA journey unfold, and their honesty and openness, will leave a lasting heart print.
