I'm sure many of us have been glued to our screens tuning into each night's I'm A Celebrity to get the latest fix on all the chaos the campmates have been getting up to.

However, it's fair to say that one of the best parts of the ITV reality show is the presence of one of the most-loved telly duos out there - Ant and Dec.

While we're most likely too busy laughing at the pair's wisecracks and one-liners to focus on much else - I'm sure a few eagle-eyed viewers have spotted Ant McPartlin's growing collection of tattoos and wondered what on earth they all mean.

Back in 2022, Ant showed off his sprawling new piece of ink situated on his right arm.

While, at an initial glance, the tattoo just looks like a cool circular pattern - it is actually a sweet tribute to one of the most famous musicians to ever exist.

Yep, the black-and-white mosaic is a nod to The Beatles frontman John Lennon, with the word at the centre of the pattern reading 'Imagine' which was the title of Lennon’s biggest hit which first graced the world's ears way back when in 1971.

The mosaic is called Strawberry Fields and the original is located in Central Park, New York, where Lennon lived and died.

And that's far from the only piece of body art as Ant also revealed in 2021 an 'A' on his chest, over his heart, which is believed to be an ode to his wife, Anne-Marie Corbett.

A couple years prior, in 2018, Ant showcased a tattoo that appears to be the Alcoholics Anonymous logo which could possibly be a tribute to his work towards recovery.

The 48-year-old later had an arrow on his right forearm which is thought to represent moving in a positive forward direction, with some fans online speculating whether it's an indication of his sobriety.

He previously told The Sun that this arrow has a 'personal meaning but it’s very positive'.

The beloved presenter also has a large rose on his left forearm and another small tattoo of three stars located near his left wrist.

Ant's additionally got the letters 'S&H' etched onto his wrist and while it’s not totally clear what the 'H' stands for, The Sun reports that the 'S' stands for 'sober'.

Who knows what else Ant will get tatted up with in the future?
