Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are making a pilot for US network ABC. A spokesman said that the pair will not be moving to the US permanently and will fit the show around their UK commitments.

Wanna Bet? is a remake of a German ZDF network format, called Wetten, dass…?, which mixes celerity interviews and music performances with members of the public placing bets on whether they can pull off extraordinary stunts.
====================
Such a shame. I had hoped they could do a Radio 2 show.

I hope that all concerned know what they're doing. This has horrible overtones of Noel Edmonds' Late Late Breakfast Show which had to be axed and fast after someone rehearsing for a daredevil stunt on the programme was killed. I'd hate Ant and Dec to be involved in anything like that.

I think it was also done in the UK by Matthew Kelly. Sounds like it is a version of You Bet?

Used to enjoy that show on a Friday night.

A pilot is a pilot - nothing more, nothing less. The majority of pilots never get commissioned, and Ant & Dec are on the same footing as complete newbies stateside.

Sorry to disagree but I find them to be good ambassadors for Tyneside.

I really do feel that they get too much abuse from the public. What have they ever done to deserve this abuse, other than be good at what they do?

Ant & Dec have just been given £40m to stay with ITV for the next 3 years. I suppose this puts an end to my hopes that they might be used as holiday cover for Dermot O'Leary the next time he is away! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
