TWO of the UK’s biggest TV stars have visited Weston-super-Mare to check out Banksy’s Dismaland exhibition.

Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, known more commonly as Ant and Dec, visited Dismaland at the Tropicana yesterday (Sunday) to take in the exhibition.

The Newcastle-born presenters are well known for their work on hit TV shows such as I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and Ant And Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

The duo are the latest in a string of celebrities to visit the exhibition, including Jack Black, who attended a VIP opening evening, DJ Mark Ronson and comedian Russell Brand.

The exhibition has been described as putting Weston ‘at the centre of the contemporary art universe’ and thousands of people have visited it since its doors were opened last month,

The final tickets to Dismaland sold out in record time on Saturday, despite Massive Attack pulling out of their performance due to technical issues.

But, if you are yet to visit Banksy’s biggest ever show you could win tickets thanks to an exclusive Mercury competition, find out how to enter here.
