Ant and Dec have had to adjust to a few differences this year as I’m A Celeb relocates to Wales from Australia.

That also includes the usual celebrations for Ant McPartlin’s birthday, which he has marked down under over the past couple of decades since the ITV reality show aired.

So instead of sunshine and a celebratory dinner by the beach, Ant was surprised with a balloon display backstage in their Welsh set and a cheeky present from his longtime presenting partner Declan Donnelly.

Taking to their joint Instagram page, Ant and Dec shared footage from behind the scenes of the Grywch Castle, where their colleagues had set up a birthday surprise for Ant.

Walking on to set Ant was thrilled to see a “Happy Birthday” balloon banner attached to his swanky black trailer: “Ahhh that’s the way to celebrate your birthday!”

Ant shouted out a thanks to no-one in particular as Dec arrived and joked: “Oh is it your birthday? Oh god better get you a card…”

An excited Ant then ran into another balloon sign which was strung up between two trailers, as giggling can be heard behind the camera.

Ant sheepishly turned round and said “sorry” as Dec smirked and shook his head, before they discovered some balloon art that was shaped as the Geordie duo.

The balloon figure featured dark hair and was holding up a star balloon as Dec’s own figure had light brown hair and was slightly smaller.

Having a bit of fun the pair held them up in front of their faces as they pretended they were on set shouting their trademark phrase: “I’m a celebrity… get me out of hereeeeee!”

Dec also played a cheeky joke on Ant as he handed him a huge wrapped box telling him it was his birthday present.

Removing the gift from his trailer into the office where they take their breaks, Ant was impressed that Dec had gone to the effort of wrapping it up.

“You’ve wrapped this? Well thank you very much,” Ant said as he began to tear at the paper, before realising there was another wrapped box inside.

“Do you know what I don’t care what it is, because you had to wrap three boxes and he hates wrapping!” Ant said as he and Dec laughed.

Finally Ant reached his actual gift which was a simple grey pen, but he seemed thrilled with it as he threw his hands up to cheer.

He left the paper and boxes in a pile as he told Dec: “You don’t tidy up on your birthday!”

“Happy Birthday Ant! Giving the gift that keeps on giving… and giving, and giving” the caption alongside the video read.

The duo were able to make time for Ant’s birthday celebrations in between their gruelling filming schedules for I’m A Celeb which usually wraps around 12.45am.
