Double Take

‘THERE are some couples that are even more famous than Barbie and Ken – the two zeppelins that form Jordan’s chest, for instance, and indeed I’m A Celebrity presenters Ant and Dec.

Ant and Dec x 10

But could you tell them apart? Do you know which one’s Ant and which one’s Dec?

If you do, you’re in the minority, as the Mirror reports that an amazing 70% can’t distinguish one cheeky Geordie chappie from another cheeky Geordie chappie.

“It’s impossible to tell them apart,” says 65-year-old Irene Murrell, of Rugby. “It’s like they’re joined at the hip.”

“I love Ant and Dec,” says Nicole Cumberbatch, aged 10, of London. “They’re great, but I can’t tell which one’s which.”

Claire Baldwin, aged 22, from Cheshire, was one of very few people to get it right. “Ant’s the tall one,” she said.

The tall one? Well, relative to weeny Dec perhaps. But the tall one? It’s like identifying the Elephant Man as “the one with blue eyes”.

Ant’s the one with a forehead the size of Australia. Got it?’
