Ant & Dec are currently in Australia hosting I'm A Celebrity 2016.



Ant and Dec said in a statement: "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."

The new deal means more series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Out!, Britain's Got Talent and Saturday Night Takeaway.

Woohoo!

ITV's Director of Television, Kevin Lygo, said Ant and Dec are "quite simply brilliant entertainers", adding: "They are incredibly passionate about television and have that rare ability to connect with audiences of all ages, which has helped make the shows they present some of the biggest on British TV."

The duo, who began their careers on Byker Grove back in 1989, have been on ITV since 1998, when they hosted SM:tv and CD:UK. They've won 30 National Television Awards, 12 BAFTA Television Awards and a slew of other honours.

They are currently over in Australia working on the brand new series of I'm A Celebrity, which kicked off on Sunday night with ten new celebrities entering the jungle camp.
