Ant and Dec can see I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! going on for years and years to come, in fact, they'd love to still be presenting it when they hit 50 years of age!

Ant celebrates his 40th birthday today (18 November) in Australia, where the Geordie duo are currently based to host the new series of the ITV show.

And, as much as we love all the celebrities that sign up for the show, Ant and Dec really do make it all the more special.

Their banter, comedic timing and just their general ability to make presenting more fun, has made them a hit with TV viewers for years. (We mean, their mounting awards prove just how much they are loved).

Speaking to The Mirror, Ant said: "Someone said to us today, 'Do you know that you've been hosting I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! in your 20s, 30s and 40s?' and I went 'Haha oh god'. It's true though - it's quite a stat. After the initial 'Oh my god' I thought I'm proud of that, it's great."

The presenting duo have been at the forefront of the ITV reality series since its inception in 2002.

"Touch wood, wouldn't that be amazing to still be doing this in our 50s?," Dec pondered. "We've done 15 series now and if we can get to 25, that would be amazing. Even 20 would be amazing."

We agree, we never want I'm A Celeb to end or Ant and Dec to stop presenting it!

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
