Ant And Dec Net Worth: Who Earns More?

The Geordie duo who have been keeping us well entertained for the past 30 years from Byker Grove to Britain’s Got Talent but just what is Ant and Dec’s net worth? And who earns more?

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly began their careers with the CBBC show Byker Grove way back in 1989 as the fresh-faced PJ and Duncan and have been by each other’s sides every since.

But does side by side mean 50/50? Which one of the presenting partners has more money in their pocket? More importantly, which is Ant and which is Dec? (FYI Ant is on the left.)

Back in Byker Grove, the pair reportedly earned £100 a day but since, their presenting career has gone from strength to strength and who can forget their one-hit wonder ‘Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble‘?

So what is the net worth of Ant and Dec?


What Is Ant and Dec’s Net Worth?

Both presenters were thought to have a similar net worth in 2018 of £62 million each.

They’re humble, relatable and very down-to-earth but their net worth is undoubtedly staggering.

Both individually earn £79,000 a day. A slight increase from £100 a day back in their Byker Grove days.

The boys are hardly strapped for cash so where does their net worth come from?

They Have Their Own Production Companies

The dynamic duo together own the production company Mitre as well as the second company Hurley (named after Ant’s dog.)

Hurley Productions made £85,000 a week, with an annual profit of £4.4 million.

Ant also owns his own production company, Teecourt and Dec has his own named Deecourt.

ITV Deals

In 2007, the TV presenters allegedly signed a contract with ITV for £40 million. Their latest is thought to be around £30 million.

Recently, NBC actually bought the format for Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway for about £15 million.

Stage And Screen

Ant and Dec both featured in the festive favourite Love Actually as themselves. In the film they interview pop star Jimmy, played by Bill Nighy who refers to Dec as “Ant or Dec”.

Together they’ve appeared on several TV shows including The Ant and Dec Show, Pop Idol, Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and Britain’s Got Talent.

Since then, the duo have also appeared in pantomimes and adverts for Morrisons, Suzuki, Marks and Spencer and Santander.

They Have Reportedly Invested A Lot Of Money In Property

Both have homes in West London and it is thought that the two collectively own £10 million worth of property.

Ant Checks Into Rehab

Ant checked himself into rehab for an addiction to prescription drugs. He stepped down from presenting duties after being involved in drink-driving offence in which he crashed his car.

He was then given a 20-month driving ban and was fined £86,000.

With one half of the pair missing, Dec continued to host Saturday Night Takeaway on his own and when it was time for I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here to return, we saw Dec with a new presenter by his side.

Returning to Oz, Dec hosted the show with Miss Holly Willoughby.


Dec said:

“Whilst I am obviously sad at the thought of being without my best friend in Australia this year, I am proud of the work Ant has been doing privately and I am fully supportive of his decision.”

The Trouble Didn’t Dampen People’s Affection

Despite Ant’s absence from our screens for the best part of a year, the pair went on to bag another NTA, after which the two shared an emotional acceptance.

Ant said:

“This is a genuine shock especially this year – I’m shaking.

“I don’t think I can accept the award this year.”

It might have been the 18th time that the two won Best Presenter at the NTAs but this one seemed to be all the more special.


Dec commented:

“Thank you doesn’t seem to cover it this year. We are humbled and honoured. 

“We are so appreciative of your continued support and good wishes, they are never taken for granted.”

Ant returned to work in time for the most recent series of Britain’s Got Talent.

Who Are Their Partners?

Ant McPartlin and Anne-Marie Corbett

Ant was married to wife Lisa Armstrong – a make-up artist on Strictly Come Dancing – for 11 years.

The pair tied the knot in 2006 but then a representative for the couple announced that they were getting divorced.

A statement read:

“In response to the recent speculation in the media, Ant is very sad to announce that, after eleven years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin.”

Lisa allegedly received £30 million in the divorce.

Six months later, it was revealed that Ant have found a new relationship with his personal assistant, Anne-Marie Corbett.

After the relationship went public, ex-Lisa tweeted:

“Thanks babe and to think she was MY friend!! xx”

Speaking for the frist time about their relationship, Ant gushed:

“She’s been my rock. She’s a beautiful soul. We’re very happy. She is the most wonderful true woman. And the way we are and when people see us together they’ll see how honest and kind and happy we make each other.”

Declan Donnelly and Ali Astall

Talking about his previously single life, Dec explained:

“It was one of those things. I thought, God! It is really hard to meet girls.”

From actress Clare Buckfield to Sky Sports Presenter Georgie Thompson, Dec has dated a fair few girls as we’ve wondered if he’ll ever settle down.

Then in 2014, the presenter popped the question to his partner Ali.

Ali had been Ant and Dec’s talent manager for more than 10 years! They now have baby Isla together, born on 1 September 2018.


They’ve Got Plenty Of Awards To Their Name

With an extensive fan base, the pair have collected nearly 40 National Television Awards (NTAs) but their accolades don’t stop there.

In 2016, the two were bestowed with OBEs in the Queen’s Birthday Honours by Prince Charles.

The following year, they won three awards at the NTAs including Best Presenters,  also winning awards for Saturday Night Takeaway and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. 

For the 18th time, Ant and Dec won the Best Presenter award at the NTAs and so were awarded the Guinness World Record for “the most National Television Awards won consecutively for Best Presenter.”
