It is understood that the figures only account for a portion of the duo’s overall income as the pair also receive separate paychecks for their roles on a variety of other ITV shows.
The duo, who are believed to be on a three-year deal with ITV, have a number of other projects under their belt as hosts of both I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and Britain’s Got Talent.
The pair also released their second book Once Upon A Tyne – Our Story Celebrating 30 Years Together on Telly back in June of 2020, and have been keeping fans up to date on their joint Instagram account.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Ant and Dec both boast an incredible net worth of £28,377,400 each.
Ant and Dec have been a team on TV for decades, having first started out as childhood BFFs.
Off-screen the pair have been the best of friends and they have been a great support to each other over the years.
Ant has been sober since his stint in rehab in 2018 after battling his drug and alcohol addiction following a boozed-up car crash.
On their documentary, Dec said of their relationship: "It's been a tough couple of years, it's really tested the bond we've shared since we were 13 years old.

"I was incredibly angry at the start, so angry and disappointed in him that he didn't ever come to me and say, 'I'm struggling, I need you', because I thought if the shoe was on the other foot I would have gone to him and said 'I'm in trouble' and he never came to me and that hurt me a lot."
Ant admitted: "I knew he was angry and understandably so because my action not only affected me but him.
"There was a point where I thought, 'that was it', there were times I wasn't sure it [their friendship] was going to survive, times that you didn't know it needed to survive, you wanted it to survive.”
