Ant and Dec have dropped a major hint that they’re already filming for a new show while halfway through the Britain’s Got Talent auditions.
The telly duo only reunited for work last month when Ant McPartlin staged his career comeback 10 months after cancelling all his projects to focus on getting sober.
Ant jointly decided with Declan Donnelly and ITV to take the rest of 2018 off after his shameful drink-drive crash, which sent a child to hospital for monitoring.
But they got back together in January for the first of the BGT auditions, with Ant tearfully thanking Dec for carrying the can while he was out of action.

And despite the pair saying last year that Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway 2019 was being axed – as they didn’t have enough time to work on new material – they’ve now teased that a new show could be on air very soon.
Their enormous Takeaway tour bus was spotted outside the ITV studio yesterday, complete with all the show’s branding emblazoned down its side.
And a special effects sound company shared a snap of the bus on Instagram teasing fans by writing: "Look who turned up at work today."

They added: "Filming of #antanddecssaturdaynighttakeaway. Thanks for the #studio tour and walk around. VIP treatment as an extra perk."
The picture has since been removed from Instagram.
It’s unsure what the bus was doing at the ITV studio, as Ant and Dec are travelling up to Manchester today for the next leg of the BGT auditions.

Ant was spotted at Euston station in London, with his PA-turned-girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett in tow.
The pair recently picked up two £2,000 Maltipoo puppies – Milo and Bumble – to stay with them, despite Ant still sharing joint custody of his Labrador Hurley with estranged wife Lisa Armstrong.
