I’m getting emotional now. I don’t know if I’m ready.’  A later scene sees Dec and Ant McPartlin, 43, in tears, with the former remarking: ‘I’ve never cried so much on tele in all my life ’  Along with travelling to Ireland and the US, including The United Nations Headquarters, they will also meet relatives they didn’t know beforehand in the flesh – with the show promising ‘truly shocking revelations’ about their history  Among these is the discovery of a Royal connection for one of the pair, a great grandfather who is a war hero, a DNA cousin who is a former US female wrestling promoter, and an ancestor’s bones who were deemed ‘of historical importance’  Speaking about the show, Ant said: ‘I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to historical events, so to get the chance to research our family history using our DNA was too good an opportunity to pass up  ‘What we find out is mind-blowing and nothing either of us could ever have imagined It’s something that will stay with us both forever.’  Dec said: ‘A huge part of this was to find out my heritage, especially on my dad’s side I always thought I knew a fair bit about where I came from but it turns out I was wrong!  ‘Whilst it was incredible to find out about the past, what was hugely overwhelming was to meet relatives neither of us knew we had It was a truly amazing experience.’  Ant & Dec’s DNA Journey airs in November on I
