ANT and Dec are reuniting with SM:TV Live mate Cat Deeley to reboot their Friends spoof Chums.
The cult skit, from their old kids’ TV show, will be part of their Saturday Night Takeaway on March 20 — with the iconic set now being rebuilt.
A show source said: “This is the reunion SM:TV fans have been calling for. It’s going to be epic.”
Ant, Dec and Cat presented the Saturday morning ITV show from 1998.
Chums featured a fictional romance between Cat and Dec with celebrities popping up in cameos for hilarious storylines.
It was so popular that when Ant and Dec left in 2001, Chums was shown as standalone repeats on CITV.
It comes after one-off show The Story of SM:TV Live at Christmas gave fans hope of a reboot.
The Sun told last summer how Ant and Dec, both 45, and Cat, 44, had met to discuss bringing it back.
The source added: “After the success of the SM:TV special, Ant & Dec, Cat and bosses thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
“Cat was taking part in the show for a brilliant Undercover segment anyway, so they thought they’d give the people what they want.”
“Producers are already thinking of brilliant things they can do and plan lots of star cameos. It will feature as the End of the Show Show segment.”
At the 2017 Baftas, Ant and Dec revealed ITV had agreed to a SM:TV Live reunion to mark 20 years since its launch — but the plans were shelved.
