Geordie entertainers Ant and Dec are said to be “devastated” that they didn’t receive an invitation to the farewell party for Barack and Michelle Obama.

An A-list guest list of musicians, actors and activists danced until 4am at the Obamas’ last White House party, held on Friday night.

“We would have been ideal compères for the party,” said Ant (or it might have been Dec).

“Most of the guests are personal friends. Maybe the invitation got lost in the Christmas post?”

The star-studded guest list included such major talents as Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, George and Amal Clooney, Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro and George Lucas.

Lena Dunham also attended.
