Ant and Dec still want to do sitcom

Ant and Dec have said they haven't dropped their dream of doing a sitcom.

The presenting duo, who found fame in kids drama Byker Grove, have enjoyed huge success as hosts of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, Britain's Got Talent and Saturday Night Takeaway but have always wanted another go at acting.

Ant told Digital Spy: "We've talked about it. We'd love to do a sitcom. Or some kind of comedy drama.

"There's no rush to do it, but there's still a desire."

Dec, who starred with Ant in a one-off remake of the sitcom Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads? in 2002, added: "We've talked about this for a while now. It's something that we definitely will do at some stage, but we're not sure when.

"We're so busy at the moment with the three shows, I'm a Celeb, BGT and Takeaway. With our Saturday Night Takeaway tour coming up as well, there's been no way we could fit it in.

"But if things slow down a bit in the next few years and we wouldn't tour again next year, it may happen then."

The pair had a cameo as themselves in the film Love Actually, and also appeared in the film Alien Autopsy in 2006.
