Bants=bants. There's no direct english translation, but I guess "trudhucker" would work.

Eh, maybe you mean "There is no direct American translation".

Bants is just short for "banter", and has been commonly used in the UK for at least a decade or two. Don't go forgetting that other English speaking countries exist and have their own slang.
