Britain's Got Talent 2017: Ant and Dec

The Kings of British TV Ant and Dec made a staggering £79,000 a DAY over the past twelve months.

The pair's total earnings according to the latest account filings show they raked in £29.5 MILLION in just a year.

The Sun newspaper reports that the total breaks down into £3.41 million from a co-owned company, £1.99 million from their production company and £23.18 million earned personally between them.

Interestingly, for whatever reason, Ant earned slightly less than Dec with the pair bringing in £12.09 million and £11.99 million from their individual companies respectively.

A source said this week: “Ant and Dec are two of the hardest-working and well-liked people in the industry but these figures are unbelievable.

“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.”

The money is set to continue to roll in for Ant and Dec following another hit series of Saturday Night Takeaway this year.

In November they signed a new three year deal with ITV, thought to be worth £30 million.

The pair said at the time: “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.”

Following the Britain's Got Talent final earlier this month, Ant and Dec will return to telly in the autumn for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
