‘It looks really good, we delivered what we set out to deliver. You’re nervous launching any new project but we’re very proud of what we’ve done. It’s the show we had in our heads.’

Dec added: ‘We’re proud. You put it out there and hope people like it. It’s a fun, exciting, dramatic watch. 

‘We hope people like it as much as we do but you can never tell, can you? You feel a bit of pressure but that’s not where you have the sleepless nights, the sleepless nights are before you shoot the show.’

‘We think we’ve come out with an exciting, fun, dramatic, jeopardy-filled hour of telly.’    

Meanwhile, Ant and Dec also joked their new gameshow could bankrupt ITV, as contestants compete to win an unlimited jackpot. 

In what ITV say is ‘the biggest prize ever conceived’ up for grabs, the five-part series features an endless money ladder, with only a correct answer banking the cash. 

If they push their luck too far, they’ll crash out of the game and lose it all.

Speaking about the limitless prize money, Ant told MailOnline: ‘We did worry that we were going to bankrupt ITV.’ 

‘We did have a few sleepless nights over whether the contestants would keep winning and winning and we’ve give away millions of pounds. 

‘Someone could go on and win a world first when it comes to the amount of money. There is a worry that someone is going to go on forever.’

Ant & Dec were speaking to the UK’s biggest TV and movies website, Digital Spy. Ant & Dec’s Limitless Win continues tonight at 8:30pm on ITV and ITV Hub
