A Scarborough fishing boat has hauled aboard a showbiz catch after landing a starring role in a new television commercial with Ant and Dec.

The Geordie duo were in Whitby filming a new advert for supermarket chains Morrisons.

Camera crews were on the fish quay for the arrival of the popular presenters, who were brought ashore onboard the Scarborough fishing vessel Emulator.

Morrisons, which has a store in Eastfield, signed up Ant and Dec to help revive the business after reporting a drop in trading over Christmas.

Ant and Dec will now feature in Morrisons’ advertisements while the supermarket will sponsor their ITV shows Britain’s Got Talent and Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway as part of the deal with broadcaster ITV.
