Cat Deeley teases huge TV return with Ant & Dec

She's spent the last 14 years entertaining America as host of several of their biggest TV shows, but it looks like Cat Deeley could be plotting her return to UK soil.

Cat, 43, has dropped a major hint that the iconic TV show she hosted with Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, SM:TV Live, could make an epic comeback.

22 years after SM:TV ceased broadcasting, Cat has shown an interest in a revival.

"It was so much fun," she said. "Philip Schofield once said to us, 'You must remember how much fun it is whie you're doing it.'"

And, just as Philip warned, Cat didn't realise how much fun she was having doing SM:TV until it was over.

She explained, "You never feel it at the time, because it's live, and you feel a bit of the pressure of it but looking back on it, I think it's the most fun we've ever had."

When asked whether a reunion was on the cards, she teased, "Quite possibly..."

But, after years away from UK television, would Cat want to be involved? "Of course I would! I'm Cat the Dog from Birmingham," she admitted.

In its heyday, SM:TV was a much-loved children's show that brought us the likes of Wonkey Donkey and kick-started Ant and Dec's hugely successful TV career.

And the boys have already revealed they'd be keen to bring it back to celebrate 30 years of working together.

Earlier this year Dec said, "We might do something later in the year but we'll let you know when we've got more firm plans."

While Cat's life across the pond with husband Patrick Kielty has been hugely beneficial for her career, there's one aspect of life in America that Cat fears.

In fact, the pair even considered leaving the US after their young son, Milo, was involved in a "shooter scare" in a Shake Shack.

Recalling the aftermath of the traumatic event, Cat told Stella magazine, "Paddy kept Milo calm - he didn't really know what was going on - and in the end it just turned out to be a suspect package.

"But Milo is three years old - something like that has happened to him. The gun laws in America are crazy ... there are so many shootings."
