Ant and Dec share first look at rebuilt SM:TV Live set in snap with Cat Deeley

Ant and Dec gave fans their first look at the rebuilt SM:TV Live set, as they threw their support behind their good pal Cat Deeley.

The presenting duo and Cat have been working on a reunion show for the much-loved Saturday morning TV series, that aired for five years between 1998 and 2003.

And getting fans all excited for when the reunion finally hits our screens, Ant and Dec chose to share a behind-the-scene snaps from the new set on Instagram.

It sees the pair cuddling up to their former co-host Cat, while the tell-tale Chums umbrella sits pretty in the background.

Dec is holding onto a copy of Cat’s new children’s book, The Joy In You, and he and Ant used the snap to promote the release.

Ant and Dec, who have just released their own memoir Once Upon A Tyne, captioned the cute and nostalgic post: ‘Seems everybody’s got a book out these days! Good luck to our chum @catdeeley on the release of her children’s book #TheJoyInYou.’

Proving that their relationship is still as strong as ever, Cat was seen hilariously mocking the boys, as she teased in the comments: ‘I think you’ll like the pictures 😘😘😘😘😂😂😂😂😂.’

Prior to Ant and Dec’s post, Cat had appeared on This Morning, where she was shown an unearthed clip of her first on-screen chemistry test with her old co-stars.

The screen test was filmed 22 years ago and saw the trio making nice, with Cat cringing as she reacted to the clip and joked she sounds ‘very Brummy’.

Speaking to Chris Moyles on his Radio X show, Cat recently confirmed that she and Ant and Dec have filmed a reunion show for SM:TV and things got pretty emotional on set.

‘We went back to the studio where we did it. They rebuilt the set. We all cried. I walked in and [Ant & Dec] were doing their interview and Dec was crying,’ she revealed.

‘I was like “okay you’re crying,” and then at the end of my interview I was like, “waaah,”‘ she joked.

Dec, meanwhile, told Zoe Ball on her Radio 2 breakfast show that the SM:TV Live reunion will be more of a documentary looking back at the series.

He said: ‘There’s definitely an SM:TV Live reunion. We’ve filmed a show looking back at the story of SM:TV and how it came about. That’s going to be on later in the year. We’ve recorded that already.’

He, Ant and Cat fronted the ITV kids show back in the late 90s and Cat admits SM:TV got off to a rough start – only staying on air because there was no alternative.

Reflecting on her time on the show, she said: ‘It was at a time in our lives when we didn’t have any responsibilities really.

‘We were doing really bad to begin with and then we turned things around. We found our feet, we found our chemistry between us.’
