'Worst song ever' is duo's party choice.

Byline: Ben Rossington Reporter

ANT and Dec are set to throw a right old 'do-do-do' when they host a joint 40th bash - with Agadoo singers Black Lace performing.

The Geordie double act have booked the 80s cheese-mongers to perform a string of their hits, including the party classic, on Thursday before they jet off to Australia for I'm A Celebrity.

Ant, who turns 40 in November, and Dec, who turned 40 last month, have booked out an entire London venue for all their famous pals, with guests expected including Holly Willoughby, Paddy McGuiness, Phillip Schofield and couple Tess Daly and Vernon Kay.

And, of course, Black Lace. A source said: "All those famous faces, the greats of British TV, all dancing to Agadoo.

"The lads think it will be a proper laugh.

"Not only is it their 40ths, but it also coincides with them going Down Under for a month, so it gives them a nice big send-off, too." Dec's wedding to wife Ali over the summer drew heaps of big names, although not the novelty hit-makers.

Lead singer Dene told The Daily Mirror's 3AM column: "I'm back gigging now and I'll be performing for Ant and Dec for their 40th. It'll be great fun."

For his 39th, Ant hired out an area of the bar at the Coolangatta Hotel in Oz, where the boys celebrated with friends and crew, dressing up in animal hats.

The boys had a night off because England were playing on ITV and Ant said: "It will be a sad day when I don't have my birthday out here - it will mean the show has been cancelled."

Agadoo was recently voted the worst song ever by music writers in Q magazine.

Black Lace's line-up has gone through several changes but is now fronted by Dene Michael, who joined in 1986. Dene, 58, went on The Voice last year but failed to be picked by the judges.

Perhaps the boys can put in a good word at Britain's Got Talent.
