Ant and Dec were spotted on campus in Maynooth and it looked like serious craic

The lads!

THE BIGGEST A-LIST visit Irish colleges can usually boast of is the annual gig featuring Mickey Joe Harte playing the Freshers Ball.

But yesterday, Maynooth stepped it up a notch.

Ant and Dec were spotted on campus – and were only too happy to stop for pictures with the mob of fans once they stepped out of their car

Once word got out that the pair had arrived, it spread across the college like wildfire

In fairness, if you saw Ant and Dec passing you’d 100% stop for a selfie

Now, it’s not been confirmed why the pair were in the college – but we need to get to the bottom of this

And sure enough, it looks like a BGT contestant from an upcoming episode goes to college there

We’re a few weeks into the series so you’d assume that this Maynooth student’s audition/storyline is coming up soon.

Here they are with the film crew in tow

What a day to be wandering around campus

At least we (think) we know why they were there

It was “next level exam procrastination” for those studying

You can’t blame them.


A full tour of Irish college campuses should be next on their itinerary.

Imagine the reception.
