Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway is returning to ITV as soon as the pair's newest venture Limitless Win comes to a close next month.

This exciting update was provided by the Geordie icons themselves this week, when they joined Lorraine Kelly for a chinwag on her chatshow.

More on Limitless Win: the format (consisting of five episodes this series) finds contestants up against increasingly challenging questions, ascending a never-ending money ladder with every correct answer.

Push their luck too far and they'll lose the whole lot, but with a jackpot this juicy, how many will take the risk?

Ahead of its premiere tonight (January 8), Dec admitted that the show's generous nature could potentially bankrupt the broadcaster.

"There's always a fear of that. We've had a few sleepless nights. We played it and played it and played it in development but we'd never played for the real money so none of us were quite sure what was going to happen when we stood in the studio on day one, with the first couple.

"How would they behave? How would it go? Would they stay in the game forever and keep winning?" he recalled pondering.

"When you turn the light off at night there's that little thing that goes off in your head that goes, 'What if someone just keeps winning – what are you going to do?' I don't know what would happen.

"We'd have to cancel Tipping Point, The Chase. Take all their prize money, put it in a pot".

Saturday Night Takeaway will return next month on ITV. Ant & Dec's Limitless Win debuts on ITV tonight (January 8) at 8.30pm.
