Ant and Dec 'are set to bag themselves a £30million golden handcuffs deal with ITV'


Ant and Dec ‘are set to bag themselves a £30million golden handcuffs deal with ITV’ – which would keep them with the network for another three years

Ant and Dec are set to snatch a £30million golden handcuffs deal with ITV, according to a new report. 

The alleged contract would see the famous presenting duo, both 46, stay at the network for another three years, with their current arrangement set to end next year.

Per The Sun, ITV are keen to keep bids from streaming giants Netflix and Amazon at bay, as the successful duo remain a huge hit at the helm of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Britain’s Got Talent, Saturday Night Takeaway and their new show Limitless Win.

An insider told the publication of the deal: ‘It would see them through to their 50th birthdays as two of the best-paid stars on television.

‘They both still seem to have the Midas touch when it comes to making programmes.

‘Keeping them on board is a shrewd move for ITV, who view them as their two biggest stars – with no sign that’s going to change in the near future.’

The source also added that ITV executives are conscious of the ongoing ‘fierce’ competition in television and ‘big streamers’ with ‘deep pockets.’ 

MailOnline has contacted ITV and representatives for Ant and Dec for comment.
