Ant and Dec admit they'd love to return to acting and have discussed starring in their own sitcom
Ant and Dec are planning their own sitcom.
The 'Saturday Night Takeaway' presenters are plotting a return to acting and admit they have talked at length about starring in a TV comedy.
Ant McPartlin told Digital Spy: "We've talked about it. We'd love to do a sitcom. Or some kind of comedy drama. There's no rush to do it, but there's still a desire."
The duo shot to fame as young actors on children's drama 'Byker Grove' over 20 years ago but have since become one of Britain's most popular presenting duos, fronting shows such as 'SM:TV Live', 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' and 'Britain's Got Talent'.
Declan Donnelly has revealed their busy schedules have made it difficult to make an acting comeback.
He explained: "We've talked about this for a while now. It's something that we definitely will do at some stage, but we're not sure when.
"We're so busy at the moment with the three shows, 'I'm a Celeb', 'BGT' and 'Takeaway'. With our 'Saturday Night Takeaway' tour coming up as well, there's been no way we could fit it in.
"But if things slow down a bit in the next few years and we wouldn't tour again next year, it may happen then."
Ant and Dec's last major acting role was the 2006 movie 'Alien Autopsy'.
