Ashley and Jordan Banjo want to be the next Ant and Dec

Ashley and Jordan Banjo believe they could be the next Ant and Dec.

The Diversity stars - who shot to fame on "Britain's Got Talent" in 2009 after the street dance group won the show's third series - are hopeful they can become a top TV duo after branching out into presenting, because they have nearly 30 years of chemistry.

Ashley is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper: "I don't know about whether Ant and Dec need to watch out but maybe in a few years it'll all be about the Banjo brothers.

"We've had nearly 30 years to make that work so I feel like we could make a really good team.

"I think what makes a good presenting duo is the chemistry and the timing between you."

Ashley recently lined up his "The Greatest Dancer" co-host brother Jordan, 26, or their fellow Diversity member Perri Kiely, to take his place on the "Dancing on Ice" panel if his wife goes into labour while the show is on air.

The 30-year-old dancer and his significant other Francesca Abbott are expecting their first child, who is due to be born during the ice skating programme's run, and he has made a contingency plan should he have to dash off set during a live broadcast.

He previously said: "I'll have to get Perri or Jordan to come and sit there on stand-by.

"I'm loving "Dancing on Ice". It's a classic isn't it?"

Ashley is finding the idea of fatherhood "quite surreal", but is delighted about the prospect after the couple went through a "tough" fertility journey.

He previously said: "It's already quite surreal for me thinking there is a little baby Banjo on the way. A little girl.

"It's been tough. People assume, I did it myself, they think, "If you want a baby, have one." It doesn't happen like that."
