The Geordie duo are trying to find long lost family in New York (Picture: Splash News)Ant and Dec have been seen filming their new ITV show in New York, and the pair looked positively thrilled to be there.
So would we if we were being paid to go on holiday.
The new programme is said to take inspiration from BAFTA-winning BBC show Who Do You Think You Are? as the Britain’s Got Talent pair meet experts and research their family trees to find out whether they are descended from any royals.
If one of them does happen to have blue blood, does that mean they’re also related to Danny Dyer? We hope so.
Their quest takes them across the pond to America to take advantage of some of the most cutting edge DNA technology in existence.
Ant and Dec have also been spotted filming in Philadelphia, where they couldn’t resist running up and down the famous steps from the Rocky movies.
Of their journey, the pair have said it has been ’emotional’ and ‘fascinating’ and are looking forward to sharing their findings and family secrets with their fans.
Ant and Dec have recently reunited on BGT (Picture: ITV)Part of the show was filmed last year but production was put on hold when Ant McPartlin checked into rehab and took a break from work.
‘We have discovered some amazing things which have shocked and surprised us and we still have hundreds of years to uncover!’ Added the presenters.
Ant and Dec recently reunited on telly for Britain’s Got Talent, and fans were happy but very emotional too see their favourite Geordies back together with one young contestant capturing the nation’s hearts when she told him she had ‘missed’ him.
While the presenters are gallivanting around the Big Apple, they seem blissfully unaware of the tragedy unfolding back in the UK.

Yes, that’s right. According to a tweet sent by the academy’s official Twitter account, the pair will be seated the wrong way round at this year’s BAFTA awards.
Hopefully the mistake will be noticed before they take their seats, otherwise who knows what will happen.
Ant and Dec’s DNA Journey is due on ITV later this year. Ant and Dec can be seen presenting Britain’s Got Talent on ITV at 8pm on Saturdays
