We all know Ant & Dec have come a long way since their modest 'Byker Grove' days and now a report has unveiled just how well they are doing for themselves, thanks to their prime-time ITV deal.
The Geordie duo, who present hit shows 'Britain's Got Talent' and 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!', are said to have doubled their earnings over the last year to reach a combined income of £12 million.

The Mirror claims a sum of £6,487,359 has been paid into the account of Ant McPartlin’s Teecourt Ltd over the last financial year – a 113 percent increase on the £2,990,435 it received in 2011/12.
And Declan Donnelly’s Deecourt Ltd has also seen a 113 percent rise this year with an impressive balance of £6,430,711 as of June 2013.
Earlier this year, the best friends made a triumphant return to the music charts with their first number one single - 17 years after their chart career as PJ & Duncan came to an end.
The duo prompted a download dash for their 1994 hit 'Let's Get Ready To Rhumble' after performing the track on their 'Saturday Night Takeaway' show.
Their re-entry into the singles chart went straight to number one, knocking The Saturdays' 'What About Us' featuring Sean Paul off the top stop.
They previously achieved nine songs in the top 40, with 'Let's Get Ready To Rhumble' peaking at nine in 1994.
