Television duo Ant and Dec have reportedly agreed a deal worth £2.8m to pen their memoirs.

According to the Sunday Mirror, the pair will tell their life stories in a joint book, which will be released next Christmas by Penguin Books.

Speaking about the project, Ant McPartlin said: "We've considered working on a book for quite a while. But next year we will have been working together for 21 years, so we feel the time is right."

Declan Donnelly said: "We're really looking forward to reminiscing about our past and moments from behind the scenes, however embarrassing they may be."
