Ant and Dec tease SMTV Live revival ‘later this year’ to celebrate 30 years on screen together

ANT and Dec have teased an SMTV Live revival ‘later this year’ to celebrate 30 years on screen together.

The Geordie duo presented the much loved Saturday morning show with Cat Deeley from August 1998 until December 2003.


Speculation has mounted over the last couple of years that a reunion could be on the cards, and speaking to the Radio Times at the National Television Awards on Tuesday, the presenters hinted SMTV Live could return this year.

Dec, 43, said: "Watch this space! We might do something a little bit later in the year but we’ll let you know when we’ve got more firm plans.”

This year is a big one for the pair as it marks 30 years of working together.

Asked what's on the cards, Ant, 43, revealed: "We’ve got Takeaway starting very soon, we’re working on that and putting the finishing touches to that, it starts very soon.

"Britain’s Got Talent is back, we’re working on that. Then back off to the jungle again for I’m A Celebrity at the end of the year.

"And that’s series 20 which we mentioned so that’s going to be a big one.”

Dec added: "Series 20 for I’m A Celebrity and that will be the 30th year me and Ant have been working together so it’s our 30th anniversary so we might do something for that later on in the year…”

The news comes after the pair won their record breaking 19th NTA for Best Presenter at Tuesday's ceremony.

Taking to the stage, Ant said: "On the way in we had our usual chat about this being the year we don't win it, and we were like 'look it's been a great run, we're very lucky to do what we do' and then you go and do this to us again.

"Thank you, we are more grateful and more humble as the years go on and we really do thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Dec added: "Yeah we are so grateful, it never gets any easier sat there, if anything you feel more and more sick every year.

"But honestly thank you to so many people, to everyone who works on all of our shows who make us look good.

"But most of all to those who took the time to vote for us, thank you to each and every single one of you, we really, really appreciate and hopefully see you next year."
