Social media users also seemed entertained by the pair, whose grinning facial expressions showed their delight at being at the historic occasion. 

‘Like two schoolboys who’ve been told by their teacher to keep quiet and can’t contain their laughter,’ one tweet read. 

Another said: ‘Dec can’t keep his face straight x love him x’

One viewer even joked that Dec had gone to the ceremony in disguise as Sir Karl Jenkins. 

The popular celebrity duo earlier joked they were going to recruit for the next ‘I’m a Celeb’ series as they spoke of how ‘proud and privileged’ they felt to be among those invited to the Coronation of King Charles. 

They burst out laughing at the fact they would be in the Abbey with dignitaries and world leaders ahead of the service this morning. 

Speaking in an ITV interview as they excitedly arrived, they were asked: ‘How does it feel for you guys to not be the most important people in the room?’

‘It feels wonderful to be honest,’ Ant said. ‘You know, I was watching all the coverage last night, I have been, leading up to it… people have been getting coronated at Westminster Abbey for thousands of years…

‘You’re part of history! It’s fantastic. So we’re just happy to be invited.’ 

He added that it was a privilege to be invited and described it as a ‘wonderful day’.  

Dec  joked they initially thought their invite was a ‘wind up,’ adding: ‘It’s cock-a-hoop, absolutely cock-a-hoop!’ 

He said it was ‘surreal’ and joked when he got the invite he thought it must be a ‘wind up’. 

He laughed: ‘I thought surely it’s our time to be wound up – and this is it! But it was for real and here we are, I can’t quite believe it.’

Dec also joked: ‘And also – we’re hoping to recruit for the next series of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’.
