THERE was a special homecoming recently when Ant and Dec came back to Newcastle to visit the city's Irish Centre.
The I'm a Celebrity...Get me out of here! pair were back in Toon where they first rose to fame as teenagers starring in Byker Grove.
At the Irish Centre, Dec met some of the members who remembered his Derry-born mum and dad who moved to Tyneside in the 1960s and went on to manage the centre in the 1970s and 80s.
No doubt the visit brought back some good memories with the Britain's Got Talent pair clearly in good spirits, judging by the picture above.
But it would also have been an emotional one for Dec as his father Alphonsus Donnelly sadly died in 2011.
The Tyneside Irish Centre moved to its city centre location in 1985 and is now situated just 200 yards from the home of The Magpies - St. James’s Park.
The boys are, of course, avid fans of the newly-promoted team.
Pictured on their visit to the Irish Centre in Gallowgate are centre manager Lynn Harrison, assistant manager Louise Johnson presenting Ant and Dec with Irish hampers specially prepared by the centre.
Also in the picture are chair of the club Monica Bishop and secretary Tony Corcoran.
