Ant McPartlin was caught swearing at his best friend, Declan Donnelly, after being pranked with a fake birthday present. The TV presenter, who celebrated his 46th birthday on Thursday, was given a box by Dec, only to find it impossible to get into.

While trying to open the present, he realised it had been glued down and eventually started using his teeth to get into the cardboard as Dec watched him while in stitches. Eventually, it is revealed that Dec bought Ant a box with 'nothing' written on it, telling his friend: "Honestly, it's nothing."

Ant shouted: "Oh for F- you [expletive]! There's nothing in there." Giggling, Dec said: "That was better than last year."

Fans adored their cheeky antics, with one writing: "That is brilliant!!! I NEED one of those boxes of nothing for a joke Christmas present for someone! I copied the multiple layers of packaging last year and got a huge laugh!" Another person added: "LOL hilarious, the best trick ever, I would love to do this! Happy birthday Ant hope you had a fab day & that Dec got you a proper present in the end lol."
