The north east’s favourite exports were back in the region recently to help raise money for a charity.

Ant and Dec attended a Cash for Kids charity lunch and helped raise £35,000.

The Geordie duo were kitted out in special hand-made jewellery.

Clusters Jewellery in Whitley Bay designed the items as part of its official links with the charity.

And the famous television double act encouraged guests at the lunch to buy the jewellery on the day.

The room was also turned into a red and black theme by local firm Made to Treasure from Newcastle Business Village in North Tyneside.

One guest won a diamond worth £1,350 and another won a luxury five-night break to Dubai.

Cash for Kids manager Lynsey Thompson said: “We were delighted to be able to bring Ant and Dec back to Newcastle in such an intimate setting.

“Guests got to see the duo up close, ask them questions and they thrilled the audience with funny anecdotes and charm.

“They are a real credit to the charity and the north east and we cannot thank them enough for their continued support.
