“It’s been a number of years since we launched a brand new TV format, it’s not something we do very often!” said Dec.

“But we’ve hit on something that is ground-breaking and innovative, and that’s why we are so excited to host this series and bring it to the nation.”

"We’re genuinely so excited to launch this new series," said Ant.

"It’s something we’ve been developing with (production company) Hello Dolly and ITV for a while now and we can’t wait for you all to experience it. We hope you love it as much as we do.”

The new show features the world’s first ever limitless jackpot and a money ladder that never ends.

Every question is an opportunity to climb the ladder and reach the big money, but only a correct answer banks the cash. Contestants who push their luck too far could end up losing it all.

Katie Rawcliffe, ITV head of entertainment commissioning, said it was “hugely exciting" to be working with Ant and Dec on the gameshow, which will air on Saturday nights in five hour-long programmes.

“Unpredictable, tense and guaranteed to have viewers on the edge of their seats, this is a quiz show unlike anything you'll have seen before,” she said.

Victoria Ashbourne, CEO for Hello Dolly and executive producer of Limitless Win, added: “We’re delighted Ant and Dec love the format just as much as we do.

"It’s incredibly simple, has a limitless prize and with the nation’s favourite presenters at the helm, it promises to be funny, tense and take viewers on a rollercoaster of emotions."
