THE BRITISH presenters struck a nerve with many people watching their Saturday Night Takeaway show.
Many viewers of the weekly show were left a little confused when Ant and Dec were explaining the details of the segment called Sofa Watch: Battle of Britain and were discussing parts of Britain.
Dec was talking to the camera when he said: "Northern Ireland isn't actually part of Great Britain, but we still want it to be part of sofa watch.."
Never used to like Ant and Dec, but well done Northern Ireland isin't really part of Britain. pic.twitter.com/xe0G4sETrG
