Ant and Dec want to do more Acting

Ant and Dec have admitted that they would like to return to their acting roots.

Returns Tonight

The presenting duo, who rose to fame on children’s TV show Byker Grove, revealed that they have been offered various roles but are yet to find time to fit the jobs into their busy schedules.

Ant McPartlin told The Sun: “We would both love to do some more acting. It’s where we came from after all. We did Byker Grove for all those years and we did Alien Autopsy and The Likely Lads a few years ago.

“We’ve been getting offered lots of bits and bobs and we’re very interested in them – both TV and films. Some would surprise you because they’ve been on ITV fairly recently.”

Declan Donnelly said: “We are actors and we love doing it. Finding the time is the only thing that gets in the way as we have so much other stuff on. But we’re looking at stuff and something will happen, I’m sure of that.”

Speaking of the possibility of working on solo acting projects, McPartlin added: “If there was something we were really passionate about we would look at it. I know people might think it’s odd and obviously that’s something we would have to think about, whether it was right to do that.”

The pair host Push The Button on ITV1 at 7.20pm tonight.
