Who's ready for another round of Wonky Donkey?! Ant and Dec have revealed that that they have already discussed how to celebrate the 20th anniversary of SM:TV Live, the incredibly popular Saturday morning children's show which the cheeky duo hosted alongside Cat Deeley back in 1998. Chatting to ITV's This Morning, Dec said: "We are talking about maybe doing something if we can get Cat [Deeley] back from America - she’s a big star out in America now - so she might come back if we beg!" Ruth Langsford offered to fill in if the popular TV presenter was busy, joking: "Well if she doesn’t [come back], I’m free! I can do the sketch thing." Ant replied: "If she doesn't come back, you've got it Ruth!"

The pair's popular show Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway will be returning for a new series this Saturday, and Ant admitted that he still gets nervous before the show airs. He said: "[I'm always nervous] before the first show back. I'm really clumsy, and the fact I haven't fallen [down the stairs during the opening shot] in 14 years - so who knows, tomorrow could be the night!" Dec revealed that he is particularly nervous while pranking other celebrities, saying: "Jamie Oliver is our first one for tomorrow night, and he's been on our list for a couple of years!"

He continued: "We kind of messed with his day really. Got involved with the photos… and we nearly get caught. We have sleepless nights before those things, because if he turned round and saw us then the whole thing's ruined - all those weeks and months of planning." On Saturday night's episode, the pair will welcome Michelle Keegan as a guest announcer, while Jennifer Hudson will take on the 'End of the Show Show'. They will also appear in a new sketch which includes cameos from Joanna Lumley, Michael Sheen and Emilia Fox.
