Posting to their joint Instagram account, the stars shared a snap of themselves kicking back in colourful Hawaiian shirts, captioned ‘See you in FOUR WEEKS.’

In a scene inspired by retro holiday postcards, Ant and Dec put their feet up with some light reading, with Dec sipping a cocktail while Ant chuckled at his magazine.

The Newcastle natives finished the post with a friendly message which read: ‘We’re both taking a break for a few weeks to spend time with family and friends. Wishing everyone a great month and we’ll see you at the end of August!’

Doubtless Ant will be taking the opportunity to spend time with his partner of over a year Anne-Marie Corbett, 43, with whom he shares a labrador called Hurley. 

Having attended rehab for painkiller addiction in 2017 and taking a work sabbatical in 2018 after facing drink-driving charges, Ant is now happily enjoying his relationship.

Ant’s divorce from partner Lisa Armstrong was announced in April following a painful breakup of their 12 year marriage.

ITV recently confirmed its flagship show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Outta Here! would return for a 20th series on Thursday with Ant and Dec at the helm.

It was also announced that a special one-off documentary called I’m A Celebrity: A Jungle Story, which will celebrate the very best moments of the show’s stellar 19 year history. 

In May it was reported that show bosses were holding crisis talks to save this year’s show amid the  pandemic.  

According to The Sun, insiders were unclear whether the show would go ahead later this year after the TV industry was thrown into chaos by COVID-19.

A source at the time said: ‘I’m A Celebrity is six months away but bosses are holding meetings about how they can ensure it still goes ahead in the current climate. A raft of measures are being looked at. 

‘One of the most recent plans was to employ a crew that is 95 per cent made up of Australian workers to overcome the issues surrounding flying to different countries and the quarantine restrictions. 

‘This would mean a lot of the show’s UK crew missing out on their annual big gig but ITV are having to seriously consider every option.’ 

The insider added that due to the changing nature of the pandemic, every possible situation was being planned for.
