Although the show on Boxing Day is a reunion episode which will see Ant, Dec and Cat take a trip down memory lane as they discuss the popular show, the TV presenting duo did also hint that a reboot of the series could be in the pipeline.

Speaking on BBC Radio 2 back in September, Ant told host Zoe Ball: "We said, 'We should just do another one time. Just do it. But do it 9.25 on a Saturday morning for three hours, get bands on.'" He added: "[But] I don't know, let's see. We'd love to do it but I don't know if we can."

SM:TV, which began in 1998 and ran until 2003, was hugely popular back in its day and saw Ant, Dec and Cat take part in sketches, games and other hilarious antics. Many more well-known TV faces appeared on the show earlier on in their career also including Stephen Mulhern, Tess Daly and more.
