Students at NUI Maynooth were treated to a brief reprieve from exam time boredom yesterday when everybody's favourite presenting duo Ant and Dec showed up on campus. 

The exact reason behind their visit remains unknown but it's highly likely they were filming segments for the next season of Britain's Got Talent. Needless to say they caused a bit of excitement as a large portion of the student body made sure to get a selfie with the duo.

Having an aul break from the study only to bump into Ant and Dec #lads #newcastle #tyne #Maynooth 🤙
