Ant and Dec filming at Alnwick Castle

GEORDIE TV stars Ant and Dec have been in Northumberland filming for their latest show.

The duo were at Alnwick Castle on Thursday shooting Red or Black? a new series for ITV1.

Over 100 competitors were involved in a series of games, each with two possible outcomes – red or black. People from across Northumberland and Tyneside took part.

The castle was the first of several locations round the country at which filming is taking place, following an initial show at Wembley Arena.

Over the events, the number of contestants will be whittled down to eight. They will then take part in seven live shows, with the overall winner collecting £1m.

Ant said: “We can’t wait to kick start our tour of the country and what better place to start than the North East.

“Alnwick Castle is such an amazing location and it brings back fond memories of my childhood holidays.”

Dec added: “Any excuse to come back home always puts a smile on our faces.

“We’ve got some incredible stunts and challenges ahead, we can’t wait to get going.”
