‘So, we have scoured the North-East to find the perfect pair of new mini us’,’ Dec explained.

However, clearly distracted by seeing themselves on screen, the big Ant and Dec had to regain their attention quickly.

The young pair were then asked to promise to ‘do their best to do everything Ant and Dec can’t be bothered to and promise to be very cheeky and very naughty’.

‘Yes, we are going to speak to every celebrity we meet,’ Little Dec added.

Given the first mission, the boys were told they were set to meet Olivia Colman and Jessie Buckley, who are starring in the movie Wicked Little Letters together.
