TV duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, who are up for the best TV presenter gong at the National Television Awards tonight, announced they will be hosting new series Limitless Win on ITV
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have launched an incredible new game show with a twist – contestants are playing for an unlimited jackpot.
The much-loved telly duo will host primetime game show Limitless Win on ITV, in which contestants answer questions to climb a money ladder – that never ends – for the chance to win a potentially massive prize.
However, if they push their luck too far, they’ll crash out and lose their winnings.
The hour-long episodes will air on Saturday nights, and will run for five weeks.
A statement from ITV said that the show would be “packed with drama, jeopardy and real emotion”.
Ant and Dec said that they’re excited for viewers to watch the show, and have been working on their secret project for a while.

“We’re genuinely so excited to launch this new series. It’s something we’ve been developing with Hello Dolly and ITV for a while now and we can’t wait for you all to experience it,” Ant said.
“We hope you love it as much as we do.”
Dec added: “It’s been a number of years since we launched a brand new TV format, it’s not something we do very often.
“But we’ve hit on something that is groundbreaking and innovative, and that’s why we are so excited to host this series and bring it to the nation.”
Katie Rawcliffe, ITV head of entertainment commissioning, said fans of Ant and Dec will love the new game show, which she said would have viewers “ on the edge of their seats”.
“It’s hugely exciting to be working with the wonderful Ant and Dec on a new primetime entertainment format where contestants can win a limitless cash prize.
“Unpredictable, tense and guaranteed to have viewers on the edge of their seats, this is a quiz show unlike anything you’ll have seen before,” she teased.
The announcement of Limitless Win comes as the telly duo gear up for the National Television Awards tonight, as they’re in the running to win the best TV presenter gong for a record-breaking 20th time.
Ant and Dec are also preparing for the upcoming series of I’m a Celebrity, which won Best Reality Show at the TV Choice Awards on Monday.
In their acceptance speech over videolink, the duo said they’re looking forward to bringing the hugely popular reality show back to TV screens.
“”Thank you to all the celebrities who took part last year in Wales. Thanks to ITV [and] everybody who worked on the show,” Ant said.
“We love doing I’m a Celebrity and we can’t wait to do the next series. Bring it on!”
