Ant and Dec must have the best relationship with ITV to let them do this. ITV pay millions to these two men, and in return get back very little.
Under their current deal, this is what they give ITV for the millions they get:
1) - Six weeks of Saturday Night Takeaway
2) - Six weeks of Britain's Got Talent
3) - Four weeks of I'm A Celebrity ...
That is it. ITV bosses must be the best to have. If this was America, NBC, ABC, CBS etc would never allow it, and they would be paid out of the contract.
What a daft post
Takeaway is 7 weeks
BGT isn’t 3 weeks
I’m a Celeb is 3 weeks but is about 22 episodes
I’ve never heard anyone complain about Ant and Dec not being on enough, many people often say they present everything.
Most other stars do their one series and nothing else.
Look at my post - BGT I said was six weeks, try reading before you go off on one.
I am just stating, that they have a very good deal with ITV, and compared to other broadcasters, these two would be released from their contracts if this was happening elsewhere. Six weeks of SNT brings in a lot of revenue for ITV, revenue which they will not get in 2019, so I was wondering will this mean some financial changes for the pair in 2019?
Take a look at what they do, and compare it to other stars, they do very little for the millions they are paid. Now, am not saying anything is wrong with that, that the deal they got and good for them, but this break must be a knock for ITV, who might have wished Declan would have carried on alone with SNT next year.
