Ant and Dec would only quit TV together
Ant and Dec would quit TV together if one was to call it a day.
The comedy duo - who met on the set of 'Byker Grove' in 1989, which propelled their inseparable partnership - have admitted they wouldn't want to continue with their showbiz careers alone and are determined to bow out together.
Dec explained: "If one of us wanted to retire I guess we'd be like, 'C'est la vie' and we'd look at it."
Ant, 40, added with a giggle: "Well I hope it'd be a bigger goodbye than just, 'C'est la vie'"
However, the Geordie pair - who have become a household name and hold the title for The Most Popular TV Presenters - thoroughly enjoy working together on-screen and are adamant they don't intend to turn their back on TV just yet because they are having so much fun.
Speaking to the Metro newspaper, Dec, 40, said of retirement: "I don't think it's crossed either of our minds because we love what we do so much. It's all we can do!
"We're incredibly lucky and I get to work with my best mate - I don't know why I'd ever want to stop doing that really."
