Light entertainment favourites Ant and Dec – who already live on the same street in Chiswick, west London – have reinforced their friendship by purchasing identical villas in the same resort on Portugal’s Algarve coast.

The Sun reports that the Geordie duo have purchased two villas off-plan at the luxury Keys golf resort.

The off-plan villas will stand side by side once they are built and are likely – according to Britain’s best-selling tabloid – to have private pools and bar areas. Property owners  at the Keys resort are reported to have access to a high-quality 18-hole golf course, private beach club, indoor gym, tennis courts and a selection of chauffeur-driven cars.
