Fuck me, Ant and Dec are bringing home some right bacon.
It was a given that the duo would be fairly well-off, what with them dominating British Saturday night TV for the last fifteen years or so.
But £79,000 per day? That’d be offensive if it wasn’t so deserving.
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnely have earned a figure close to £30 million in the past 12 month alone, according to The Sun. This is mainly down to their lucrative ITV deal and in part to a string of separate business ventures.
Having started out in the late eighties as PJ and Duncan on CBBC classic Byker Grove, the comedy duo have since set up two companies.
One of which is Mitre Television, named after the pub in Byker Grove. It produces Saturday Night Takeaway as well as owning the archives to SM:TV.
The other is Hurley Promotions. The earning from the two businesses is £5.4 million, but the primary wonga comes from Dec’s Deecourt and Ant’s Teecourt, which brought in £12.09 million and £11.99 million respectively.
In 2016, they signed a three year deal with with ITV to keep them at the helm of their most watched shows, including Britain’s Got Talent.
