british telly is the best

Ant and Dec earn a whopping £79,000 a day

Ant and Dec may be smaller than the average man - but what they lack in height they more than make up for in the bank.

It’s been reported that the TV duo earn a staggering £79,000 - a DAY.

The small screen celebs, both 41, raked in a whopping £29.5million in the last 12 months to take home the hefty daily income thanks to I’m A Celebrity, Britain’s Got Talent and Saturday Night Takeaway.

“Ant and Dec are two of the hardest-working and well-liked people in the industry but these figures are unbelievable,” a source told The Sun.

“It’s a testament to their characters that you never see them flouting their cash or acting flash despite being the best paid stars in British telly.”

Their accounts were made public through Companies House paperwork for their firms Deecourt Ltd, Teecourt Ltd and Hurley Promotions.

News of their pay cheques comes months after they signed a three-year deal with ITV, reportedly worth a massive £30 million.

Speaking at the time they said: “We are absolutely delighted to be extending our relationship with ITV, to continue on the three shows we love as well as exploring further opportunities both in front of and behind the camera.

“This deal will take us past the 20-year mark with ITV and we couldn’t be happier.”
