Ant and Dec are set to reunite with Cat Deeley for a reboot of their TV series SMTV.

90s kids’ TV favourite SMTV Live was hosted by the trio on Saturday mornings between 1998 and 2001.


A one-off special reuniting the three piece will air on ITV later this year.

Sharing the above picture to Instagram from filming, Cat Deeley wrote: "SMTV reunion @antanddec ...... All those in favor say "I"....."

Ant and Dec added on their account: "Excited? #reunion"

The special forms part of Ant and Dec's celebration of 30 years on TV, which also involves the launch of their new book.

A source shared with The Sun newspaper previously: "SMTV was such a huge part of Ant and Dec’s career they knew they wanted to mark it in some way.

"The show will look back on some of the best moments and see old guests reminisce.”


As part of the special, a return of spoof sitcom Chums is also rumoured to be in the works.

The Friends parody was a regular feature of SMTV and bosses hoped to sign up some big name celebs to feature in the revival.

As yet, no official air date has been announced - watch this space!

The latest news follows repeated rumours about a possible reboot of SM:TV Live.

First teased in 2018, a one-off special was reportedly in the works to celebrate 20 years since the first episode.

But with Ant and Dec's busy schedule the plans were put on hold.


Earlier in 2020 Ant and Dec teased a possible SM:TV reunion show again but the ongoing pandemic once again forced production to pause.

SMTV began on 29th August 1998 and ran for five years, although Ant and Dec left the show in 2001, followed by Cat in 2002.
