Ant and Dec reportedly made £41,000 a week last year presenting I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here and Saturday Night Takeaway.

The sun reports that the duo The Geordie, both 45, made a total of around £2.1 million in the year to last June.

Their two companies – Miter Holdings and Hurley Productions – that oversee their TV efforts, revealed the numbers last night, according to the publication.

Documents also reportedly show the companies have £3.3million in cash at the bank and paid around half a million in taxes.

Their total earnings figures are likely to be even higher as they don’t take into account other ITV salaries for shows like Britain’s Got Talent.

A source told the publication: ‘This isn’t all they earn, but it’s kind of part of their own business and even with everything that’s happened this year, they’re still doing incredible numbers.

‘They are by far the biggest names on British television, all things considered, but their ratings are still huge, so they’re worth every penny.’

Representatives of Ant and Dec have been approached by MailOnline for comment.

It comes after reports that Ant will be hosting an alcohol-free bachelorette party on a golf course, followed by a slap-up four-course meal.

The presenter will marry fiancé Anne-Marie Corbett, 43, in August this year and is said to plan a modest party on Wednesday with a group of friends, including witness Declan.

Ant’s golf party will be in stark contrast to his boozy bash in 2006 prior to his wedding to ex-wife Lisa Armstrong, 44, with the star waking up in a McDonalds dressed as a French maid after the wild night.

This time, the Saturday Night Takeaway star, who has been sober since 2018 after his drunk driving shame, will play a few rounds of golf instead of a round of drinks.

A source told the mirror: ‘Ant’s life has moved on from his and Dec’s wild nights in the past – now he just wants to play golf with his friends for a day before treating them to a slap-up meal.’

The publication reports that the group of 15 friends, including entertainer Jonathan Wilkes, 42, will hit an 18-hole golf course in the south of England, before heading to an exclusive clubhouse for a four-course meal prepared by the chef.

The boys will relax in their own private space and enjoy locally produced delicacies, while also adhering to social distancing measures by sitting at separate tables.

MailOnline has reached out to Ant representatives for comment.

Ant’s 30-year-old show partner Dec famously hosted his first bachelorette party 15 years ago, where they enjoyed a wild, booze-fuelled, Monopoly-themed pub crawl through London, with a different fancy dress costume worn at each venue.

Then they went to the Latvian capital Riga, where they continued the fun with a 12 hour drinking session.

At the time, Ant, who quit drinking three years ago, blamed his best friend for getting worse from wear and tear at McDonalds and vowed revenge, with Dec having his pre-wedding bash in 2015 before marrying Ali Astall.

He said at the time: “You know when you’ve been drinking all day and you have that one moment of clarity, and I came dressed as a French maid at McDonald’s just off Regent’s Street.

The I’m A Celebrity presenter added: ‘It will be in that direction. Revenge is a dish best served cold.’

It comes as Ant and Anne-Marie are reportedly planning to get married in August in a quiet ceremony, with the couple eager to marry only their loved ones.

According to reports from The sunAnne-Marie has already gone to try on a dress, but the couple have only informed those attending the wedding of when and where it will take place, as they want to keep details a secret.

A source speaks claimed to the publication: ‘None of them want the razzmatazz of a showbiz wedding. They just want to have their near and dear ones with them.

“It will be a simple but beautiful ceremony, without the glare of the spotlight. They are both very excited and can’t wait to tie the knot.

“But they’re desperate to keep things under control. Those in the know have been told it’s top secret.

Ant’s engagement to Anne-Marie was announced on New Year’s Eve after he asked the question in a romantic Christmas Eve proposal.

The presenter is thought to have paid up to £200,000 for the ring after designing the piece himself.

Tobias Kormind, director of Europe’s largest online diamond jeweler 77 Diamonds, said: ‘It’s a very romantic design that harks back to an older style.

Relationship: Ant and Anne-Marie were first linked in March 2018, two months after Ant released a statement confirming he had separated from wife of 12 years Lisa

‘A ring with a diamond of comparable quality currently on our website costs £125,000. A traditional jeweler in Mayfair can charge up to £200,000.’

And the ring is certainly bigger than the one the I’m a Celebrity host gave to his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong, whom he divorced in 2018 after 12 years of marriage.

The upcoming wedding comes after he and Lisa were said to have finalized their divorce in April last year.
