Iconic duo Dick and Dom are set to return to screens soon with a brand new show for adults.
The pair are best known for their presenter duties on Dick & Dom in Da Bungalow from 2002 to 2006 – feeling nostalgic yet?
They’ll be returning with a new shoe based on their Cash From Chaos podcast, according to The Mirror, a whopping 14 years on from when they were last on screens presenting Sky One's Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old?
And it’s got us wondering: what have Dick and Dom have been up to since the bungalow days? Let’s take a look…
Where are Dick and Dom now?
Dick and Dom, whose names are Richard McCourt, 44, and Dominic Wood, 43, have popped up on screen over the years.
They filmed a whopping 254 episodes of Dick and Dom in Da Bungalow, resulting in them becoming a big part of people’s childhoods and gaining thousands of fans as a result.
After the hit show finished airing on BBC Two, the duo went on to present The Sunday Morning Show on BBC Radio 1 in 2007.
The show ran for a year, between 10am to 1pm, before ending in 2008 and during this same time they presented their Are You Smarter Than a 10 year old show.
They hosted the show for two series before it was then hosted by Noel Edmonds and finally Damian Williams.
Speaking to VICE in 2019, they said: “We've done a whole lot of stuff over our 23 years in the business, but clearly that period of our lives and career really affected people in a very positive way. 'You were my childhood,' is a phrase we get a lot. It's nice to know we had an effect."
The pair also said that they attract more attention than ever when out in public, adding: “Without social media, people didn't have as much a reason to stop you.
“They only want a selfie and to say hello. You see tweets where people say they've met us and we're quite boring. We don't know what people expect. We aren't going to queue up for a ticket for the central line, throwing custard pies."

The pair have booked radio gigs, podcasts and Edinburgh Fringe shows, and they’ve made appearances on TV shows including Celebrity Come Dine With Me and Celebrity Juice.
However, they admitted to Vice that some of their projects have faltered: “Projects have been stopped because they just say, 'You're the guys who stood in a small house and yelled bogies.’
“It’s hard for a lot of people to move on from it, when we know we can do other things. We wouldn't get the Newsnight gig, that's for sure."

He’s a keen runner too, and he ran the London Marathon, Manchester 10K runs and has even cycled from London to Paris.
