Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
These cheeky chappies from Newcastle upon Tyne have come a far way from their Byker Grove days!
Ant and Dec have come a long way since their PJ & Duncan days as they reveal just how much the duo will earn from a multimillion pound contract with the commercial TV channel.
The Geordie pair already present I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here, Britain's Got Talent and Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and it looks like they will be returning to present them all for another three years on ITV.

The presenters, both 40, told the Mirror that they are in the final stages of signing a joint deal that is worth around £30million and that they want to sign it before they head out to Australia to start filming I'm A Celebrity at the end of October.
Ant said: "Let’s be honest it is close. We have had people come and discuss stuff with us but we love ITV and all the programmes we make there and they want us to stay. Before we go to Oz we want to sort it out yeah.”
Dec added: “We are not on the dotted line yet but we want to stay and they want us to stay. It is just ironing out all the bits and bobs.
“The whole Netflix/Amazon thing, theatre tour and other stuff are not necessarily for right now. It is still being talked about but is hopefully in the short to medium term.”

They cheeky chaps also hinted at who they would like to see face the trials and tribulations in the jungle for I'm A Celebrity. Ant confessed he's gutted that Strictly Come Dancing bagged former politician Ed Balls before they could but Dec wants to see ex-leader of UKIP Nigel Farage in the camp.
He said: “I want Farage. That’s if they let him in the country! But yeah lets put a couple of those politicians in there who talked us out of Europe and then disappeared. Lets put them in."
