Presenters Ant & Dec will celebrate 25 years with ITV by extending their current exclusive relationship with the broadcaster for a further three years.

The new contract comes at the start of a busy year for the duo, who throughout 2023 will host brand new series of Ant & Dec’s Limitless Win, Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, Britain’s Got Talent, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and I’m A Celebrity South Africa, which features some of the show’s favourite camp mates from the last 20 years.

All series will be shown throughout the year on ITV1 and ITVX.

Limitless Win, which launched in January 2022, became ITV’s biggest brand-new entertainment series launch since The Masked Singer, drawing in 6.1 million viewers for its launch. Meanwhile, 2022’s series of I’m A Celebrity, which returned to Australia for the first time since 2019, achieved the show’s biggest ratings in four years, with the final peaking at 11.5 million viewers.

Throughout their tenure at ITV, the pair have won 43 National Television Awards and 18 BAFTA Television Awards.

Kevin Lygo, Managing Director for Media and Entertainment at ITV, said “The world of television and streaming is always a much brighter place with Ant & Dec at the centre of it, and we look forward to continuing our successful working relationship with them across the next three years.”

Ant McPartlin said: “We’re so lucky to host the best entertainment shows in the world. We absolutely love our shows and we are both extremely happy and very excited to extend our relationship with ITV for another 3 years.”

Declan Donnelly said “We can’t believe we are reaching 25 years exclusively with ITV. Especially as we are both only turning 30 this year…!”
