Dec interjected: "We came back and ITV said "oh so you've re-commissioned it on air have you?" but they're on board now and we've had first discussions about it and it looks like it's going to go ahead, not this September but next August/September."

Ant added: "It will be 20 years to the year. We can't have the same studio unfortunately as it's all getting changed around but we are getting the team back together. It will be three hours, but we are in our forties now."
