‘That’s the thing, none of us can be sick around him because he catches it right away. We’re constantly always washing our hands,’ Teresa shared. ‘Like when you have a baby and you make sure everything’s clean, that’s how you have to be with him because he gets sick easily.’

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly looked unrecognisable as they recreated Jan Van Eyck’s Arnolfini Portrait from 1434 on Instagram on Tuesday.

The presenters, both 44, declared ‘no social distancing rules were broken in the making of this portrait’ as they donned 15th century attire to transform into Italian merchant Giovanni di Nicolao Arnolfini and his wife in the iconic painting.

Britain’s Got Talent presenter Ant donned a black shroud and robes paired with a hat as he adhered to to social distancing and kept his hand away from Dec, in a marked change from the painting which shows the couple holding hands.

Dec struck a serene pose in a white headdress and emerald green robes as he posed with his hand on his layered skirts.

Completing the hilarious recreation, one of Ant’s beloved Maltipoo dogs stood at his feet, mirroring the 15th century pooch depicted in Arnolfini’s lavish home in Bruges.

The snap was captioned: ‘A’rt Meets Dec

The duo’s post comes after they hosted the final of Saturday Night Takeaway from home in a bid to keep the nation entertained amid the coronavirus lockdown.

The star and co-host Ant McPartlin sweetly admitted that they hope they’d ‘put a smile on viewers’ faces’, as they presented the finale from their sofas.  

The programme’s final should have been hosted in Disney World Florida, however due to the COVID-19 crisis the trip had to be cancelled.

At the end of the show, Dec said: ‘Sadly that’s all we’ve got time for tonight and for this year, it wasn’t quite the series we planned or hoped to bring you.

‘But it has been a privilege to keep bringing you Saturday Night Takeaway to try and put a smile on your faces.’
