Ant and Dec have signed a new deal with ITV that will take them past their 20-year anniversary with the network
Britain’s favourite TV duo Ant and Dec have confirmed they’ll be back to present more I’m a Celebrity, Britain’s Got Talent and Saturday Night Takeaway in a new three-year ITV deal.
It means they’ll appear exclusively on the channel until at least the end of 2019.
Ant and Dec said: “We are absolutely delighted to be extending our relationship with ITV, to continue on the three shows we love as well as exploring further opportunities both in front of and behind the camera. This deal will take us past the 20-year mark with ITV and we couldn’t be happier.”
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returned to ITV on Sunday with strong overnight TV ratings of 10.7 million and an 11.7 million peak, the show’s highest audience since the 2013 final.
The Geordie duo joined ITV in 1998, presenting the Saturday morning shows SM:tv LIVE and CD:UK and they’ve won numerous awards including a record breaking 30 National Television Awards (including Most Popular Entertainment Presenters for 15 consecutive years), 12 BAFTA Television Awards and eight Royal Television Society Awards.
