Ant and Dec has revealed that TV bosses are interested in renewing 'PokerFace' - but the duo are unlikely to front the game show

Ant and Dec say there's been "renewed interest" in 'PokerFace'.

The presenting duo have revealed that TV bosses are currently exploring the idea of reviving their hit game show.

Ant told Digital Spy: "'PokerFace' is interesting because we did two series of it, which were successful, and it sold around the world. And then we came off, and we didn't do any more, because we gave away a million pounds to the winner – actually, that's probably a bit high. So if you were to bring it back, you'd probably lower the prize money, yet still have all the brilliant gameplay."

The ITV game show was a hit with viewers in 2006 as it saw contestants bluffing their way through a quiz in the hope of taking home £1 million.

However, the players did not need to get the questions right, as they simply needed to pressure their competition into folding in order to win big.

The 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' stars are thrilled that people are interested in the show making a comeback but there are adamant they won't be presenting it.

Ant continued: "It's kind of a combination between a quiz show and a reality show. People are still interested in 'PokerFace', which is great to know.

"You might see it back on the screens – not necessarily with us hosting it, but, you know, it might make its way back onto the telly."

The pair have high hopes 'PokerFace' will find its way onto a big streaming platform like Netflix or Amazon Prime – but they are committed to ITV and wouldn't want to part ways with their long-time broadcast partner.

Dec added: "We're 100 percent ITV. We're exclusive to ITV. All of our stuff is with them. So no, we couldn't do anything presently."
