Duo to take 'Saturday Night Takeaway' on the road

Ant and Dec are to take 'Saturday Night Takeaway' on tour.

The presenting duo are planning to go on the road with their popular ITV variety show because they have always loved the reception fans have given them from when they have travelled up and down the UK for the 'Britain's Got Talent' auditions.

Ant told The Sun newspaper: “We’ve always been dying to get out there and do something live. We’d have a right laugh.

“It’s something we’re in discussions about now.”

Dec added: “We’d take set pieces that we do, have guests on and games with the audience.

“It would have the spirit of 'Takeaway' on the road.

"One of the parts of 'BGT' we love doing the most is going around the country. So we thought we’d love to do a live tour.

“The only thing is I don’t know if my liver could take it!”

The 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!' co-hosts – who fronted game show 'Wanna Bet?' in the US in 2008, but it was axed after one series - are also planning another crack at America, and think they could make it big in the country with 'Saturday Night Takeaway'.

Dec said: “We should do 'Takeaway' from Chicago or Philadelphia. We’d have great fun with it.”
