The countdown to Christmas is in full swing as the world's largest Hamleys toy parade took place on Sunday 19th November 2017 in Regent Street.

Ant and Dec were back to their normal selves from the start of last night's launch of the hit Australian based reality TV show.

The Geordie duo didn't shy away from the elephant in the room, with Dec addressing previous rumours that Ant was going to be replaced after he went into rehab to deal with his addiction to prescription medication.
