TV presenters Ant and Dec have claimed the Queen personally asked for them to host a horse-themed show celebrating her 90th birthday.

The Geordie duo will front the extravaganza, which will tell the story of her life. It will be staged in the grounds of Windsor Castle in May and broadcast live on ITV.

The pair - famed for their irreverent style as hosts of I'm a Celebrity - presented a documentary about the Prince's Trust last month, and spent part of last year shadowing the Prince of Wales for the ITV programme.

Asked how their role in the tribute to the Queen came about, they said: "Apparently, she asked for us to do it."
