Ant and Dec always "have a right laugh" on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!'

The presenting duo host a range of shows for ITV including 'Britain's Got Talent' and 'Red or Black' but admitted 'I'm A Celebrity' is one of their favourites because of its relaxed nature.

Ant told What'sOnTv: "They're all big ITV1 shows, but they're all different. 'I'm A Celebrity' is us having a right laugh, taking the mick a bit, the sun's shining, it's on every night, you really know what to expect. And 'BGT' is 'BGT'.

"But we approach 'Red or Black'completely differently because we're working with the general public and it's more like a game show. It's just lovely to watch - and when you get a big win, you know how much it's going to change their lives and the lives of their parents, friends and kids. It's an amazing thing to be able to say 'you're now a millionaire!'"

'Red or Black' has made a number of changes before it returns for a second series and the pair are thrilled with how it has all come together.

Ant added: "It's going to be on weekly instead of nightly. It's also pre-recorded, which gives us time to finesse the show. We've learned from series one. It's a lot harder and there's more skill involved when the contestants choose red or black - it's much less based on luck. Now the money starts at half a million quid in episode one and if it isn't won that night, it rolls over and over and we end up giving away a lot of cash! It's the biggest cash prize in British TV history, so it's very exciting."
