Ant and Dec lose £2.5m in one year, company filings show

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly lost an estimated £2.5million in just one year, according to company filings.

One of their main businesses, Hurley Promotions, grew from £5.2m to £2.6m in a year.

The company was formed in 2013 to support revenue from Saturday Night Takeaway hosts.

The money is thought to have been lost after a luxury apartment complex in the Algarve collapsed.

They both invested in the development, called The Keys.

Mirror has reached out to Ant and Dec’s rep for comment.

As well as Hurley Promotions, the duo also have Miter Holdings – named after the Byker Grove pub, the BBC program they both starred in.

Despite losing millions of pounds, the duo have thrived in the television industry with their endless hosting gigs.

Not only did they present Saturday Night Takeaway, but they also returned as hosts of Britain’s Got Talent.

Fans got to watch them present the hit show I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! recently, which was filmed in Wales.

It has also been confirmed that their show, Ant and Dec’s Limitless Win, has been renewed for a second series.

The ITV game show – hosted by the fan-favorite duo – has been criticized by some viewers for being too difficult to understand while others have called it “slow”.

Ahead of the final episode aired last month, ITV bosses confirmed the show – which sees contestants climb a financial ladder to win an unlimited jackpot – has been re-commissioned for another series.

Confirming the news, the presenting duo said they were ready for “another round of biting drama, danger and tension”.

“We’re thrilled that Limitless Win was a hit with viewers and will be coming back for more. We’re beyond excited to be able to do it all over again and can’t wait to find new contestants to play the premiere TV show with an unlimited jackpot!” said Ant.

While Dec added: “We are already preparing for another round of biting drama, peril and tension as we feature more questions than you can’t help but Google! We expect more dizzying climbs and more high on the Limitless silver scale. We can’t wait.

Ant and Dec are also believed to have signed a three-year deal with ITV worth around £40million.
