Ant and Dec want to get Danny Dyer on the next series of Saturday Night Takeaway

EastEnders

Ant and Dec have revealed hopes of getting Danny Dyer on the next series of Saturday Night Takeaway.

The Geordie duo have said they're keen to get the EastEnders actor on the show for an Undercover prank.

"We’ve got a few celebs in our sights for under cover. We would love Danny Dyer," the pair told the Daily Star newspaper.

However it appears that Ant and Dec may need to be a little persuasive.

Danny's agent told the newspaper: “I can categorically state that no approach has been made for Danny in connection with the next series of Saturday Night Takeaway or any segment associated with the show.”

Of course with Saturday Night Takeaway not back until next Spring, there's plenty of time to go.

However it has been confirmed already that Scarlett Moffatt will return to Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway in 2018.

The former Gogglebox star turned Queen of the I'm A Celebrity jungle joined the Geordie duo as a co-host for this year's series.

And after proving a hit with viewers, Scarlett has already signed a new deal.

Speaking at the BAFTA TV Awards, Dec told The Sun newspaper: “Scarlet has signed her contract so we can talk about her! She is back!”

He went on: “We loved Scarlet so much! Scarlet is brilliant she hit the ground running,” Dec continued.

“She bought a real wit and charm to the show that was sadly lacking. She brought this lovely female presence and we loved having her.

“As soon as we worked with her on I’m A Celebrity we wanted her."
