    I know I'm probably in the minority but Little Ant and Dec are starting to get up my nose now, I'm sorry, I don't find them cute or funny

    However I do like the real Ant and Dec, they are cool

    I think Ant and Dec are brilliant when they are being natural and unscripted...but they just don't do it for me when they have obviously scripted jokes, can't quite pull it off.

    Reeves and Mortimer had this tag a few years ago but failed to live up to it.Some acts are unique and can't be imitated although I was never a big fan.

    Reeves and Mortimer were excellent in their own way that's all.

    Ant and Dec, however, should be taken outside and shot immediately.

    I like the Saturday Night Takeaway program, think it's very funny!
    But have to agree when it all seems scripted it's very obvious and I don't find it so funny, they work brilliantly together though.

    Rather than Ant and Dec, I think I'd rather watch Ant and Bee (for those old enough to remember reading it! ;-))

    Morecombe and Wise were a one off. There will never be anothe duo like them.
    When I watch their videos, I still laugh as much as I did when I first saw them.

    They are really good (probably the best duo on tv at the mo) but no way are they in the same league as Morcambe and Wise. Legends, nuff said!!

    No, I agree. they're good (compared to the rest of the dross that's on now) but not that good. Having said that I always thought the Two Ronnies were funnier.

    And Tommy Cooper beat the lot!

    Morecombe and Wise were superb, The Two Ronnies were pretty damn good, Reeves and Mortimer could produce the goods on occasion but Ant and Dec just make me want to change channel.

    I'm still hoping that the surgical separation of Ant from Dec goes through... :twisted:

    The M&W Grieg Piano Concerto sketch still makes me laugh every time I see it. Absolute classic. The only time Ant and Dec made me laugh was their embarrassed reaction to John Lydon's outburst on the recent I'm A Celebrity! As I said, I wonder whether Eric Morecambe's son was having a laugh....

    I like them, they're pretty cool, but the new Morcambe and Wise?.........no!

    Anyway I don't think they could get away with smoking a pipe on telly these days.....

    What was it he said? 'I'm playing all the right notes, just not necessarily in the right order!' :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Sorry Elin, tend to disagree with this one.

    I think Les Dennis, Dustin Gee, Eddie Large and Sid Little had more talent than these two - and they were awful!
