Ant And Dec Plotting American Saturday Night Takeaway

Subscribe to Ant and Dec alerts

For all Ant and Dec’s huge success on British TV, we must admit we’ve never really envisioned them crossing over to an American audience. For one thing their brand of humour feels very British in itself and, for another, Cheryl Cole’s disastrous attempt to make it on the new X Factor stateside went awry for, among other reasons, people struggling to understand her Geordie accent.

Nevertheless, it’s become public knowledge that the duo are indeed discussing a move to America, where they’ll be taking their Saturday evening entertainment show Saturday Night Take Away with them. They did try taking on America back on 2009, as STV points out, but their show Wanna Bet? lasted only six episodes before being cut due to poor ratings. However they clearly feel their luck has changed and, speaking on television, Declan Donnelly addressed the speculation. “There's murmurings and there's talk about [the US] and obviously it's done so well here” he said, of the show that’s in its 10th series in the UK. “There's only two left of the current run here, so there's talk about it. I don't know, I think it would be great, it would be fun to do in the States – Takeaway would be amazing out there. It's a big country - lots of people, lots of fun you could have - so who knows?"

Elsewhere, the pair could be set to top the UK singles charts with their 1993 hit ‘Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble’ after they performed the song on last weekend’s ‘Takeaway. Bookies William Hill have them at 8/13 to succeed.
