ITV Britain's Got Talent star Dec appears to 'break down' in office - but all is not as it seems

By James Rodger & Jake Brigstock

ITV's Britain's Got Talent host Declan Donnelly, one half of the famous Ant & Dec duo, has been filmed appearing to break down in tears. Co-star Anthony McPartlin filmed and shared a video of what looks like Dec bawling his eyes out, reports Birmingham Live.

Fans were left concerned, but Ant clarified things quickly to dispel any rumours. The Geordie duo were messing around with TikTok's 'sad face' filter, they confirmed.

Ant enters a room to find Dec sat there, working hard at a computer. Ant asks Dec: "On no, what's the matter?" Dec, clearly baffled, asked: "What?"

Ant continues to ask if Dec is OK, and then asks why he is crying. Ant asked his co star: "You seem really upset, is everything ok with you? What are you crying for?"

Dec replied: "I'm not!" Ant then tells his long-term best pal: "Who has upset you? I'll beat them up if they've upset you!" Ant captioned the post: "Having a bawl with this one".

He captioned the post with the hashtag #cryingfilter. Last weekend, Ant and Dec reflected on their "inspirational" drag performance after winning the Bafta TV award for entertainment programme.

The presenting duo transformed into Lady Antoinette and Miss Donna Lee as part of a drag queen performance on their ITV show Saturday Night Takeaway in February. Speaking after receiving their Bafta TV award, Donnelly, 46, said the pair were "moved by how inspirational people found it".

"When we had the idea of doing the drag act, we wanted to do it properly, and we wanted to do it right, and we want to be respectful of the artform," he said. "We didn't want it to look silly, and that we slap on a bit of lipstick and eyeshadow and then walk out in wonky heels. We were like, if we're going to do this, we're going to do it properly because it is a real art form and it's a respected art form."
