Dec Donnelly joked he was replacing his pal and co-host Ant McPartlin during their ITV documentary, Ant and Dec's DNA Journey.

Ant and Dec found out some pretty interesting details about their ancestors, as well as finding living relatives.

Throughout the first part of the ITV documentary, both hosts received alerts to tell them when researches had discovered a new DNA match for each of them.

People across the country and even around the world had taken DNA tests, as had Ant and Dec, before matches were discovered.

One moment saw Dec gobsmacked, as he found out he had a cousin in America.


Not only that but wrestler Dixie Carter had flown over to Ireland to meet him, with them both sharing Irish heritage.

The pair got talking, with Ant joking she would perform some wrestling moves on him.

Dixie's daughter was even left starstruck when she met her new cousin, revealing she already knew who the TV presenters were.

She watched the duo on Britain's Got Talent videos in the US.

As their meeting came to an end, the cousins said goodbye before hugging it out.

Ant kept joking about the moment, leading Dec to threaten to ditch his pal and start a new partnership called Dec and Dixie.

Viewers were in hysterics, but several others were more stunned to learn the two were related.

One fan tweeted: "Dec is related to former TNA owner Dixie Carter…and I thought 2019 couldn't get any weirder."

Another said: "Dec being related to Dixie Carter is quite the discovery. He could have helped her save TNA Wrestling and she could have put herself forward for #imaceleb ."

A third commented: "Sorry I'm mindblown. Dec & Dixie Carter are cousins??? I can't believe this isn't a joke."

Ant and Dec's DNA Journey continues Monday night at 9pm on ITV.
