Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have taken inspiration from the Top Gun hero Maverick, as they arrived for the third day of Britain's Got Talent auditions on Tuesday.

The presenting duo arrived at the London Palladium dressed in pilots uniforms inspired by the British Red Arrows, to film a skit that will air when the new series kicks off this spring.

Ant and Dec's inspiration is aptly timed given the long-awaited Top Gun sequel is finally set for release in May 2022, after being delayed multiple times due to the Covid pandemic.
