Dec Donnelly ‘earned £14,000 a day’ without co-host Ant McPartlin

Dec hosted Saturday Night Takeaway by himself and I’m A Celebrity with This Morning host, Holly Willoughby, 39, as Ant stepped back from his presenting duties.

It was confirmed from documents filed at Companies House that Dec made over £5million from June 2018 to June 2019, according to The Sun.

The documents read that he earned £4million through his company, Deecourt Limited, and the rest through firms he co-owns with Ant.

Ant is now back on screen alongside Dec to host Saturday Night Takeaway and they recently broke ratings records after 11.1 million viewers tuned in during the nationwide lockdown.

After their 30 years of presenting together, Ant and Dec are planning to release their own book, Once Upon A Tune: celebrating 30 Years Together On Telly.

Excited about their new project which is said to launch this Autumn, Ant previously revealed to the Press Association: “If you had the 14-year-old us that we’d still be working together on some of the biggest TV shows in the world, we’d have laughed you out of Byker Grove.”

The presenter said he and Dec are “still having more fun than anyone”.

He added: “‘It would have been too much for our tiny minds to comprehend but here we are still together and still having more fun than anyone really should be having at work.”

He said: “It has, until now, involved a lot of tea (green for me, builders for Ant), chocolate biscuits and laughter.

“In this final period of writing it is mostly video calls with dogs on our knees, but still trying to make each other laugh – which in essence is what we’ve spent the last 30 years doing!”

Dec also told the publication it took both him and Ant by “surprise” that they had been presenting together for 30 years.

The Saturday Night Takeaway host explained: “It took us by surprise that we’d been together for 30 years; it has gone by in a flash.
