The heat was on to see who had the better DIY skills - the Duke of Cambridge or Prince Harry - as they donned their personalised hard hats and steel-toed boots to help turn a derelict street into homes for ex-service personnel.

After William declared it was "game on", the brothers set about showing off their handiwork during a visit to a Manchester street wearing their 'William' and 'Harry' hats.

William, wearing a blue shirt and jumper, and Harry looking casual in a blue hoodie, both rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in to lend their support to the project.

Hailed as the DIY SOS team's "most ambitious" project to date, it will see eight buildings undergo renovation, plus the rejuvenation of the facades of 62 houses to help create the basis of a new mixed community.
