Ant and Dec spotted out and about in County Leitrim

Ant and Dec were spotted out and about in Leitrim yesterday.

It seems the Saturday Night Takeaway duo have developed a real love for Ireland, as they were also spotted earlier this week on the campus of NUI Maynooth.

The duo visited Drumshanbo, Drumkeerin and Carrick-On-Shannon and locals were delighted to see them. The boys happily posed for pictures with their fans.

There has been speculation that an Irish person will be on Britain's Got Talent, or else they are filming something to do with Ant's Irish heritage.

The I'm A Celebrity get me out of here presenters have not revealed the purpose of their visit to Ireland.


But, The Leitrim Observer has pointed out that McPartlan is a very common name in Drumkeerin and that perhaps Ant is tracing his roots, as they were also accompanied by a genealogist.

A source told the Irish Mirror, "The series is set to air next year and researchers visited Leitrim in recent months but locals had no idea who would be coming to film."
