so, ant and dec have announced that their contract with ITV ends at the end of the year.

they've also hinted at other projects (1 of which is more acting and moving to Netflix)
discuss.

do you think ant and dec should renew their contract with ITV?

why or why not

i have mixed opinions- i think they should, mainly because, who else have ITV really got to host saturday shows. not many people. their's only about 3 (harry hill, paddy McGuinness, Phillip Schofield) and let's just face it... ant and dec not on saturday will be a huge loss to the channel as they present so much stuff.

on the other hand, i don't think their shows are in danger.

take i'm a celebrity, ITV could find another presenter for that- and it would be just as good (it's a winning format) i think it would take a lot to get it canceled.

not so sure about saturday night takeaway. yes it's a winning format, yes people love it, but would it work without ant and dec hosting it.

perhaps, but only if someone really good was found.

perhaps it is time for ant and dec to move on to something else. as good as they are, and as long as we've had them on ITV (20 years or so), everything comes to an end

huge loss as i say to the channel and the viewers who love them, but then the question is.. would they work now as actors?

we're not in byker grove era anymore. since then they've become known for a lot more- entertainers, game show hosts, talent show hosts, host of the brit awards, etc.

i'd like to hear your thoughts.

if ant and dec decided to leave ITV, do you see a future for them?

I don't think either of them are particularly special. To be honest, I think they're both a bit shit and UK TV would actually be better without them

They should retire and never darken our screens ever again.

I like Ant and Dec enough but it's about time they moved over, they've dominated ITV on the presenting front for almost as long as I've been alive, it's about time they moved on to other things laugh.gif

that made me smile

telling it like it is
calling them both " a bit shit"

may not agree with that, but it is the funniest thing i've read all day

ITV will splash a shedload of money at them. And their contract will probably be non-committal to ITV to allow them to do other things.

Fact is they're probably the UK's biggest regular presenters. Infact, no wait they are.

The problem with UK TV is not the presenters, as much as they represent the patronisation of our culture through television events, losing them won't change the shows. I find them insincere and dull, but it's much the same with most of the shows on ITV anyway. They've been a good fit for each other.

Oh f*** no. Ant & Dec are the saviours of humanity when compared to Keith Lemon.

I find them absolutely intolerable, I would honestly they say are the least funny and least amusing prominent presenters on TV. I cannot watch I'm A Celebrity because I find them borderline embarrassing to watch, and Saturday Night Takeaway is my idea of hell. Nothing they say is funny to me and it could all be written by a year 7 who has yet to develop a sense of humour. I get that they have their fans but anybody could stand there churning out shit predictable jokes about an 80s popstars before they eat kangaroo dick. As much as I'd love them to disappear into irrelevancy, ITV will never let them go because somehow people lap up anything they front :/
