North East duo Ant and Dec have been discussing their plans for their future.
"We love I'm a Celebrity, Britain's Got Talent, Saturday Night Takeaway, but they're all live shows.
The difference between doing a live show and a sitcom is that a sitcom can live on. If you do it well, it can leave a legacy, whereas most of our live work never gets repeated because it's final, it's done, you start again.
So we're developing a silent comedy idea at the moment. It will take a couple of years and we might never get there, but it's the way we'd like to go."
In an interview with the Independent, Ant McPartlin spoke about the pair's happiness with how things were going in the UK for them, but also wishing to try to crack America one last time.
"It would need to be the right show. I think we've got one big push left in us, and we'd have to make sure it's worth it. If it happens, it happens, but because everything is going so well over here, we're not dying to break America."
