Ant and Dec made £7 MILLION last year, but who got the most?

Ant and Dec

Ant and Dec pocketed more than £7 million between them over the past year, it's been revealed.

The duo currently front number of shows for ITV including Britain's Got Talent, I'm A Celebrity, The Brits and Saturday Night Takeaway.

In the year until end of June last year, tax filings show that the pair's companies enjoyed a total of £7.07 million.

Although interestingly that wasn't split equally: Dec enjoyed £3.38 million compared to Ant's total of just under £3.3 million.

Not that we imagine he'll be complaining, mind.

According to the Guardian, Dec's company - called Deecourt - is now worth £12.4 million while Ant's Teecourt is worth £12.3 million.

Those earnings are only set to grow with ITV rumoured to be offering BIG money to keep the pair.

Right now, Ant and Dec's contract with the channel expires at the end of the year and the Geordie telly hosts have hinted they may not renew it in order to pursue other projects.

"We haven’t decided yet. Me and Ant have talked but we haven’t talked to ITV. We normally do it before we go off to the jungle," Dec said last month. “Our three big shows and the shows we love are on ITV.

“But we are also evaluating and looking at other things."

The Daily Mirror reported that the pair could get as much as £30 MILLION to keep them on ITV for a further few years at least.

"The deal isn’t up until later in the year, but rest assured the bosses aren’t standing by letting it just run out - they’re already considering their options," a source told the newspaper.

According to the insider, ITV are "planning a new deal which will be very tempting for them" .

“The conversations are coming over the next few months so they’re working on their offer well in advance to make sure it all goes smoothly," they added.
