Saturday Night Takeaway: Ant, Dec and Cat Deeley recreate their classic SMTV spoof Chums


Saturday Night Takeaway fans were in for a treat this weekend as Ant and Dec and their SMTV co-star Cat Deeley recreated their spoof comedy Chums.

The trio hosted their Saturday morning kids show from 1998 to 2003, with one hugely popular segment seeing them create a parody of TV show Friends, with Dec and Cat starring as lovebirds.

And Saturday night saw the gang recreate their classic show with the likes of Sting, Steps, Emily Atack and Brian McFadden joining in the fun.

It’s back! Saturday Night Takeaway fans were in for a treat this weekend as Ant and Dec and their SMTV co-star Cat Deeley recreated their spoof comedy Chums

Fans of Chums will remember that the end of the series saw Dec finally marry the woman of his dreams Cat, with a star-studded guest list that included none other than Mariah Carey as a bridesmaid.

Fast-forward 20 years and while Dec and Cat think they’re preparing to celebrate their big anniversary, little do they know that they’re not actually married as Ant forgot to get their marriage certificate signed all those years ago.

In the remake of their hilarious comedy, Ant gets ordained and prepares to marry the pair for real – with a host of big names making special guest appearances.
