Ant and Dec have revealed plans to bring back SMTV: Live.

The Saturday morning kids TV series was a huge show in the 90s and early 00s, starring and the Geordie duo alongside Cat Deeley.


The wacky programme saw the trio involved in ridiculous games and sketches, such as Friends parody C.H.U.M.S and the always brilliant Wonkey Donkey.

2018 will mark 20 years since the very first show and we could see it back for one Saturday only.

Ant revealed this week: “We were talking to somebody about this recently because it’s twenty years since the launch of SM:tv next year.

“So, we were saying whether we could do an anniversary special or something, and we got carried away with the idea.

He told the Metro newspaper: “If we did it a one off, it would be on at 9.25am, with C.H.U.M.S and all that, and get Cat back!”

Dec added: "We're floating it about a few people at the moment, and were getting some positives responses so far."

Meanwhile, Cat has given her backing to the idea after appearing on Saturday Night Takeaway earlier this year.

The presenter with the perfect hair was revealed to have been villain Maskface in the show's The Missing Crown Jewels whodunit.


Speaking to the Press Association about a SMTV reboot, Cat said: “I think it would be a great idea. It’s been 20 years. I think it’s about time, isn’t it, for all those with a mis-spent youth?

"It would be great and really fun. If we can all get back together at the same time, at the same place, let’s recreate the magic."
