Saturday Night Takeaway fans enjoyed Ant and Dec reuniting with friend Cat Deeley to revive their SMTV: Live Sketch Chums

Viewers were nostalgic as the trio chatted and laughed on Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly’s Saturday Night Takeaway family entertainment show on Saturday night

Their Saturday morning show, SMTV: Live, ended in 2003, but the trio were reunited to create a brand new episode of Chums

Previously, Chums, which featured a stream of celebrity guests every week, was loosely based on American sitcom buddies

“Cat Deeley is back with Ant and Dec I’ve just gone back 25 years, “cheered a fan on Twitter

“I love seeing Ant, Dec and Cat together again! I feel old!” tweeted another

But others found that there was no social distance between them and asked how the trio could stand so close together
