After a long legal battle two of the entrepreneurs from Dragons’ Den have acquired the exclusive rights to perform under the moniker made famous by Ant and Dec in the 90s.
The ruling will see the unlikely pair tour the shopping centres of the North East of England, performing a handful of songs made almost-famous by Ant & Dec in their previous incarnation.
"We fancied a change - and a challenge," explained Jones, "and reviving the ailing P&J and Duncan brand seemed to be it. I'm pleased that the courts have recognized that Bannatyne and I have a much stronger claim to the name than Messrs McPartlin and Donnelly. It means we can finally Get Ready to Rhumble..." said the lanky businessman.
"We've also bought the rights to the kids TV show Byker Grove," added Bannatyne "which we'll recreate pretty much how it was. Except we'll be relocating it from a youth club in Newcastle-on-Tyne to an upmarket health club," said Bannatyne, owner of the UK's largest independent chain of health clubs.
