Saturday Night Takeaway performance of 19 year-old hit pushes it into the reckoning
They only performed it for a bit of a nostalgic giggle, but could Ant and Dec be set to bring back their PJ & Duncan personas and set the world of music alight once more?
The cheeky Geordie duo – real names Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly – performed their 1993 hit Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble on their ITV show Saturday Night Takeaway, but what was meant to be a fun got picked upon by their viewers and it’s since been revealed by The Independent that they’re set to top the iTunes chart this week with the song! Furthermore, it looks like they could be getting close to the top of the UK singles chart proper! Dec wrote on Twitter after discovering the news “I know the charts have slowed down a bit but taking 19 yrs to get to No.3 is just plain radix. D #LetsGetReadyToRhumble (sic).”
If you believe bookies William Hill though they could well be hitting the top spot, with odds being offered on the pair at just 8/13 on the song reaches number one this weekend (6/5 it does not).“It seems as though the whole nation was watching Saturday Night Takeaway this weekend and as a result, Let's Get Ready To Rhumble is number one on the iTunes chart and looks likely to scoop the UK number one this weekend,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Ant and Dec could get their first number one 20 years after their first single.” Help us all.
Ant and Dec - potential chart toppers?
