Ant & Dec reuniting with Cat Deeley for SMTV Live special amid career milestone
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly will treat fans to a nostalgic trip down memory lane when they reunite with Cat Deeley later this year.
Ant and Dec will join Cat for a one off special of SMTV Live to celebrate the Geordie duo's 30 years in the industry.
An insider said: "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."
SMTV Live ran from 1998 until 2003 spanning over 270 episodes.
Ant and Dec fronted the show with Cat for the first three years it was on air.
The trio famously filmed a segment called Chums which was meant as a British spin-off of Friends.
While Ant and Dec went on to dominate UK TV, Cat jetted off to America to become a host in the states.
In April 2017 Cat joined Ant and Dec for a mini reunion during the live finale of Saturday Night Takeaway.
Taking place at Walt Disney World in Florida, Cat joined the lads on stage as a surprise guest.
While the 2020 reunion show is yet to be confirmed Dec hinted at the plans earlier this year.
Speaking to RadioTimes, Dec said: "Watch this space! We might do something a little bit later in the year but we'll let you know when we've got more firm plans.
"Series 20 for I'm A Celebrity and that will be the 30th year me and Ant have been working together."
Meanwhile, in February 2017, Dec said ITV were onboard with a reunion… but it never came to light.
Speaking at the TV BAFTAs he said: 'ITV have just agreed to it. They are on board now. We've had the first discussion now and it's going to be August or September next year.
'We can't say too much but we're getting the team back together. It'll be on Saturday morning again at 9.25."
