Ant and Dec’s TV success saw them take home £23,000 a day last year, according to reports.
The Daily Mirror said Geordie duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, both 39, who grew up on council estates in Newcastle, raked in £8.4 million between them.
Their earnings come from hosting ITV hits Britain’s Got Talent, I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! and Saturday Night Takeaway.

According to the newspaper, a TV source said: “It’s little surprise they are raking it in given they are fronting three of the biggest and most popular shows on TV, with huge ratings to boot.
“For the big cheeses at the top of ITV, they are worth every penny.”
The Mirror said that accounts for the duo were filed by private firms Teecourt, Deecourt and Hurley Promotions.
