Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have signed a £40 million three-year contract with ITV, which could increase to £50 million if they chose to increase it.

The Sun reported on Saturday that the channel were keen to keep their ‘most prized assets’ by offering them the new deal, after Amazon Prime Video were allegedly interested in taking on the duo for a new show.

A source speaking to the publication claimed: ‘With their current golden handcuffs deal up for renewal, other broadcasters have been sniffing around — most notably Amazon who still have a lot of cash to splash.

‘There was talk of them getting their own series on the streaming giant. ITV are desperate to prevent this and have come in with a new, big, big money, three-year deal.’ 

The source added: ‘Their current contract is £30million and is now going up to at least £40million — with scope to extend it in length and take the pay up to as high as £50million.’

The publication also reported that while Britain’s Got Talent is set to return to ITV in mid-January, judges David Walliams and Amanda Holden have yet to sign their contracts for the new season.

They claimed that Alesha Dixon would be returning for the show, while head judge Simon Cowell has a separate contract with ITV that ensures his involvement on the talent show.
