Declan Donnelly has responded to paparazzi photos of him that showed him shopping with a recently-grown beard.

He responded by quote tweeting an article headlined: "Declan Donnelly looks dishevelled during food shop as best friend Ant continues his recovery from addiction."

Hitting back through the TV duo's joint 'Ant and Dec' Twitter account, Dec wrote: "Charming. You give the old razor a rest for a few days and you're labelled 'dishevelled'. I'll be sure to dig out my tux next time I pop to Sainers."

People were quick to praise him for the banter:

Dec's TV partner Ant entered rehab for drink and prescription drugs issues earlier this year, although it looks like the pair will reunite for I'm A Celebrity later in 2017.

A close friend of the pair told the Mirror in July: "Dec wouldn't work on screen without Ant on any major show and he has said the last thing he would do is go to Australia without him.

"Ant and Dec are a team with a huge emotional bond, they are like brothers and and Dec will only be hosting I'm A Celebrity with Ant by his side.

"They've got months yet to sort things out and the hope is that Ant will bounce back with another hit series of I'm A Celebrity and they will move on from this chapter in their career."
