Emotional Ant and Dec spotted teary-eyed before going wild over Newcastle goal
Ant and Dec were among the thousands of Newcastle United fans in St James' Park on Sunday who were overcome with joy after the recent takeover of their beloved club.
The presenting duo could be seen delighted in the stands before kick-off, with Ant taking a video on his phone so he could share the memory with his loved ones.
Dec on the other hand was taking in the scenes with his own eyes, having a look around while blinking away tears following a miserable period under the ownership of Mike Ashley.
With chairman Yasir Al-Rumayyan in attendance alongside director Amanda Staveley, Steve Bruce's side went 1-0 up before the third minute with Callum Wilson heading home.
And after watching the opening goal from Wilson, both jumped in the air in delight before a tender embrace as the close friends hugged.
On seeing news of the takeover on Thursday morning, the Ant and Dec Twitter account simply wrote: "Oh what a beautiful moooooorrrrrrrning."
Bruce went into the game knowing it would be his 1000th as a manager, and got a good reception as the mood was lifted across the City following the takeover.
