Heist society… Ant and Dec’s next move
THE con could be on for Ant and Dec as they spilled the beans on their imminent return to acting.
In an exclusive chat with Guilty Pleasures On TV, they told us they are considering life on the lam in a crime caper.
And we reckon the Geordie duo could get ‘ha’way’ with it.
‘We’ve already been in to see the head of drama,’ confirmed 41-year-old Ant who, along with Dec, has signed a new three-year contract with the channel believed to be worth £30million.
Inspired by the ‘whodunnit’ segments on Saturday Night Takeaway, Dec, also 41, added: ‘We’d like something along the lines of Who Shot Simon Cowell? but more feature-length.’
This year’s mystery, with guests including Joanna Lumley, is called The Missing Crown Jewels.
However, the biggest concern of the former Byker Grove stars is staying one step ahead of the celebs they’ve pranked. When the new series of Takeaway returns tomorrow at 7pm on ITV, their first victim is Jamie Oliver. The duo held up ‘we love turkey twizzlers’ signs as the chef posed at the launch of a new restaurant.
‘Everybody we’ve done has sworn revenge, “I WILL get you back!”’ admitted Ant. ‘There are times when you’re in a room or you’re in a car and you’re going, “Is there a secret camera in here?”’ laughed Dec.
‘We were in Australia and had the worst masseuse ever,’ Ant recalled. ‘She was massaging Dec’s arse cheeks and said, “You guys have the cutest little arses”. She got more and more overfamiliar and we were like, “someone has got us back” — but, no, it was absolutely fine!’
Our bucket list is beyond the pail…
AFTER shoring up their life insurance, Ant and Dec are ready to race through their respective bucket lists.
The boys recently took out six-figure policies against each other in the event that one of them dies. Dec kicked off with his ambition, saying: ‘The one thing I would love to do is fly a helicopter.’
Then Ant chipped in: ‘I’d like to be shot with a bulletproof vest on. It’s quite sick, but I’m fascinated by it’ — prompting his best mate and next-door neighbour to quip: ‘Let me know if you’re going to do it and I’ll up the insurance slightly.’
