Britain’s Got Talent released its first promo this week and it was pretty funny. It showed the four judges as British monarchs through the ages. Simon was a medieval king with wolves, of course. But I did notice a conspicuous absence: Ant and Dec were nowhere to be seen. I’m not surprised Ant McPartlin wasn’t there…but where was Declan Donnelly?
As we all know by now Ant will not be in the live shows because he was arrested for drunk driving and checked himself into rehab. He is not appearing on any of his TV gigs like Saturday Night Takeaway and of course BGT. But Declan, as far as we know, is still supposed to host BGT by himself. At least that’s what the show led us to believe. And at any rate Ant will probably appear in some pretaped segments. So, again I ask, where is Dec?
I would hate to think that they are considered such a package deal by ITV that the show won’t let Dec host without Ant. That would be really crappy. Hopefully, it was just an oversight. Though, come to think of it, that seems unlikely.
