Declan Donnelly DIDN'T tell best friend Ant McPartlin that he was going to propose!

We were pretty surprised to read today that Ant had no idea his bessie mate was planning to pop the question to Ali Astall over in Australia last week.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! returns with its 14th series - hosts Ant & Dec


Ant & Dec are in Australia presenting the 14th series of I'm A Celebrity.

We thought they did EVERYTHING together!

Ant told The Mirror that he had no idea Dec was planning to pop the question, saying: "He did it all himself. I'm very proud of him. Good lad."

And Dec's cheekily refusing to confirm Ant as his best man just yet.

"He hasn't been asked yet!" said Dec. "He has to wait to be asked. There is plenty of time for all that."

Well, if Ant isn't Dec's best man we will be TRULY shocked!

While in Australia, Ant also celebrated his 39th birthday.

Ant & Dec are over in Australia hosting the 14th series of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, which airs nightly on ITV.

Dec chose to pop the question to girlfriend and manager Ali over in Oz before the show began but says proposing in Australia didn't have any special significance.

"It just seemed the right time. So yeah, I just did it. It's so nice. I've had an amazing year."

Aww. We're happy for him!
