The group then headed to an exclusive clubhouse for a four-course meal prepared by the head chef. 

A source said: ‘Ant was having the time of his life, he and Dec were laughing and joking all the way around.

While Dec reportedly toasted his close friend’s happiness, booze was off the menu after Ant quit alcohol in 2018 following his arrest for drink driving.

Ant’s 30-year presenting partner Dec famously organised his first stag do 15 years ago, where they enjoyed a wild, booze-fuelled Monopoly-themed pub crawl around London, with a different fancy dress costume worn at each venue.

At the time Ant, who quit booze three years ago, blamed his best pal for ending up worse for wear in McDonalds and vowed to exact revenge, with Dec having his pre-wedding bash in 2015 before marrying Ali Astall. 

He said at the time: ‘You know when you’ve been drinking all day and you have that one moment of clarity, and I came to dressed as a French maid in McDonald’s just off Regent’s Street.

The I’m A Celebrity host added: ‘It’ll be along those lines. Revenge is a dish best served cold.’
