The pair sat in on Friday's editorial conference before selecting the front and back pages of Saturday’s edition.

Unsurprisingly, they chose a back page highlighting the relegation-threatened plight of their beloved Newcastle United.

Taking the cue from their highly successful ITV reality show, the headline ran: "We’re a big club – get us out of here!"

Dec said: "If sales rocket through the roof it's down to us, if it dips slightly then I think it was a poor conference!"

Ant added: "The title sums it up really - get us out of this mess that we constantly seem to find ourselves in!"
