Everyone knows Ant & Dec are close, but now the presenting duo have revealed they are even insured against one of them dying.

In an interview with Radio Times, Ant said: "We're insured against the other dying.

"It's not for tens of millions but a fair chunk. If [Dec] does ever die in unfortunate circumstances, I'm going to be the first person the police come to because I've got a motive.

"Maybe when we're 50 and not getting paid as we used to, I'll knock him off."

After another successful run of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here', Ant and Dec are returning as hosts of 'Britain's Got Talent' next month and will return to ITV this weekend for their first series of 'Saturday Night Takeaway' since 2009.

Talking about the new series, Ant said recently: "You think you've seen it all, then a man with a saucepan on his head turns up! We can’t wait to see who or what turns up this time."

But Dec expressed concern that nothing will please show boss Simon Cowell quite like last year's Pudsey did: "Simon was the happiest I have ever seen him when Ashleigh and Pudsey won! I’m not sure we’ll ever see him as happy again – so that’s the challenge, Great Britain: show us what you've got!"

Since their win in May, which was watched by a peak of 14.5 million viewers, Ashleigh and Pudsey have performed in front of Her Majesty The Queen at the Royal Variety Performance, appeared on 'America’s Got Talent', been guests on 'The Jay Leno Show' and Pudsey has even penned (or pawed) his autobioDOGraphy.

And runners-up Jonathan & Charlotte have seen their debut album go gold.

  • Ant and Dec

    Where would British television presenting be without the veteran Geordie boys? Who else could we trust to laugh sheepishly at weird people on Britain's Got Talent?

  • Kanye West and Jay-Z

  • Tom Felton and Rupert Grint

    They might be mortal enemies in the films, but Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy - or rather, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton are the best of friends off-screen. Grint even wore a 'I Love Tom Felton' t-shirt on the red carpet at one premiere.

  • Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford

    Ed, centre, and Chace, right, two-thirds of the male contingent of Gossip Girl have propped up the hot, well-spoken rich male TV trope all on their own for the past few years - both on and off screen. Good men.
