Cat Deeley Teases 'SM:TV Live' Revival With Ant And Dec After 22 Years
Well, Cat Deeley has teased the return of the morning TV staple, 22 years after the show launched.
Speaking to The Daily Star, the Brummie presenter - who is now based in LA - revealed that filming the morning show was the "most fun" she and her co-presenters Ant and Dec ever had.
"It was so much fun," said Cat. "Phillip Schofield once said to us, 'You must remember how much fun it is while you're doing it.'"
The presenter continued: "You never feel it at the time, because it's live, and you feel a bit of the pressure of it but looking back on it, I think it's the most fun we've ever had."
Quizzed on whether the popular show could ever make a return, Cat replied: "Quite possibly."
Oh, Cat. Don't say it if you don't mean it.
And that's not the only hint we have to go on.
At the Television Awards in January, Dec teased that he and Ant had plans to mark their 30th anniversary of working together - could that spell an epic SM:TV reboot?
"We might do something a little bit later in the year but we'll let you know when we've got more firm plans," he said at the awards ceremony.

The anniversary will coincide with a major milestone for I'm A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here, too, as it broadcasts its 20th series.
Talking about the anniversary, Dec told the Radio Times: "Series 20 for I'm A Celebrity and that will be the 30th year me and Ant have been working together, so it's our 30th anniversary so we might do something for that later on in the year..."
Basically, something is definitely brewing, and we like the sound of it.
This isn't the first time there's been talk of an SM:TV reunion.
There were rumours of a reboot back in 2018, with Cat telling PA: "I think it would be a great idea. It's been 20 years. I think it's about time, isn't it, for all those with a misspent youth? It was normally the Friday night that was the misspent youth and they woke up on the Saturday morning, slightly hungover."
The much-loved children's show, was broadcast on ITV between 1998 and 2003 and featured segments like Friends spoof, Chums.
Responding to questions about whether she'd welcome a return to SM:TV, Cat responded: "Of course I would! I'm Cat the Dog from Birmingham."
Please let the rumours be true, telly gods.
