Harry Hill says Ant and Dec have snubbed him each time he's invited them to appear on one of his shows including 'TV Burp'

Harry Hill claims Ant and Dec keep turning down the chance to appear on one of his shows.

The 52-year-old comedian hosted 'TV Burp' from 2001 to 2012, and has revealed the pair previously snubbed a potential appearance on the madcap ITV programme among others, and that the popular Geordie duo - whose full names are Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly - are "impossible" to track down.

Harry said: "Previously I'd asked them to do stuff on 'TV Burp' but they're a bit like The Beatles - it's impossible to get hold of them. There's like an outer circle of people who protect them fiercely.

"They're not allowed to travel together and they have a network of tunnels that transport them from ITV Studios back to their homes in Chiswick."

However, Harry is not afraid of getting snubbed and has invited 'EastEnders' actor, Danny Dyer - who plays loveable pub owner Mick Carter in the BBC One soap - to appear on the panel of the new series of 'Harry Hill's Alien Fun Capsule', but he accepts that it may be a big ask as the 39-year-old actor has such a busy filming schedule.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, he shared: "We've asked him, but the 'EastEnders' cast are quite tricky because they don't know their schedules."

Danny is Harry's favourite to take part in the show, which sees two teams attempt to save the planet from alien invasion by undertaking a number of challenges, and says he once told him he was a "funny c***".

Harry also joked that he thinks Danny should be cast as his ancestor Edward III in a biopic.

He added: "He's top of the list. I met him once and he goes, 'You're a funny c***! He said it about 10 times over. I think he's a really good actor.

"The obvious thing would be to cast him as his ancestor, Edward III. But he would have to be Cockney."
