Ant and Dec have insurance policies against each other

Chatting to Fabulous magazine, Dec said: "I insure him and he insures me. If something were to happen, then the other one would get a pay out." Ant added: "It's six figures, I think. It's big! But it's not like anything evil is going to happen. I think I would be the first suspect if we were together and Dec suddenly fell off a cliff! I've got a big motive." The pair are due to renew the insurance policy, and Ant admitted that he wasn't sure it would be "worth it". He said: "We have to figure out whether it’s worth it! We should check the premium first."

The pair were recently awarded OBEs for their services to entertainment and broadcasting, and visited Buckingham Palace to accept the medals from Prince Charles back in January. Sharing snaps of the special day on their joint Twitter and Instagram accounts, Dec wrote: "Well, what a day! Thanks for all your kind words." They also joked about the first-in-line to the throne winning I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, telling ITN: "He's an outdoors sort of fella! He's probably win it." They previously spoke about the honour of the award, telling the Chronicle: "This will definitely be the proudest our mams have ever been! We are both shocked, but incredibly honoured to receive OBEs. We are just two ordinary lads from the west end of Newcastle. We hope us receiving this honour can inspire young people to chase their dreams and believe that anything is possible."
