Britain's Got Talent hosts Ant and Dec are reported to be nearing a joint £30m presenting deal with ITV.

The BAFTA winners' contract with the broadcaster recently expired and British newspaper The Mirror says that the new three-year deal is an increase of £5m on their previous agreement.

A spokesperson for the stars - full names Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly - declined to comment on the reported figures, but the duo revealed at the TV Choice Awards in London this week that negotiations were almost at an end.

"We are not on the dotted line yet but we want to stay and they want us to stay," said Donnelly. "It is just ironing out all the bits and bobs."

McPartlin added that he and Donnelly wanted to "sort it out" before they travelled to Australia for the new series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!.

"We have had people come and discuss stuff with us but we love ITV and all the programmes we make there and they want us to stay," he said.

News of the deal follows reports in the summer that Dermot O'Leary has become ITV's highest paid solo presenter with an £8m contract to return to The X Factor for four years.
