Stephen Mulhern wants to present celebrity Catchphrase

Stephen Mulhern wants to do a celebrity "double act special" of 'Catchphrase'.

The 38-year-old presenter has revealed that Anthony McPartlin is "so good" at the board game version of the ITV show that he wants to host an episode with him and his presenting partner Declan Donnelly and 'This Morning' duos Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield and Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford as contestants.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Stephen said: "I've always said what I'd love to do is a double act special, so have Ant and Dec versus Holly and Phil versus Eamonn and Ruth. It would be amazing.

"I was round Ant's house, and he is so good at the game, like he is brilliant! I said, 'I'm going to bring the board game round and we are going to play it versus Dec'. So, if you can imagine this - it sounds slightly sad thinking about it. They are so competitive, it's unbelievable, but Ant stormed it. He's unbelievable, and I think, together, they'd be brilliant."

While Stephen has hosted the show, where contestants have to guess famous sayings from a picture, since it was revived in 2013, he doesn't fancy his chances at taking part in 'Catchphrase' any time soon.

The 'Britain's Got More Talent' host said: "I see all the answers the night before so I get the privilege of finding out the answers beforehand, but do I think I'd be any good at it? This sounds really sad, but I don't think I would, because I'd say the most random things."
