Cat Deeley has confirmed an SMTV Live reunion show is in the works, describing it as “very, very, very cute”.
The Saturday morning children’s show ran for over 270 episodes between 1998 and 2003, focusing on sketches, competitions and challenges.
Deeley, who co-hosted the show with Ant and Dec, confirmed details of the reunion to Chris Moyles on Radio X.
“We have filmed a documentary, it’s going to be aired at the end of the year,” she said. “We went back to the studio where we did it. They rebuilt the set. We all cried. I walked in and they were doing their interview and Dec was crying and I was like ‘ok you’re crying!’ and then at the end of my interview I was like [sobs] ‘waaah!’.
“We all have a bit of a cry, we take the mickey out of each other, it’s very, very, very cute. I actually got a text message from Ant yesterday saying he’s seen the first cut and they cried watching it too. So hopefully there wasn’t too much of the first show in it otherwise he would be crying at how appallingly bad we were, we were rubbish!”
Cat Deeley also spoke of the reunion on Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden, remembering the show’s legacy. “It’s just one of those things where you turn around and you go there’s nothing like it,” she explained. “You can’t get away with that kind of stuff anymore.”
Stay tuned for news on a release date for the SMTV Live reunion.
