Playing P.J. (Ant) and Duncan (Dec) in the 90s, Byker Grove followed the lives and relationships of a group of young people who were members of a youth club.

Standing on the set of Byker Grove in tonight's documentary, Dec says: "We had some of the happiest time of our life here. We wouldn't be where we are without it… I'm getting a bit emotional thinking about it."

"This was Byker Grove," says Ant. "Amazing. Changed our life!"

An emotional Dec adds: "We had some really good times."
