Kem, 21, said: “Me and Chris are in a good position at the moment because the figures that we anticipated for the show we completely knocked them out.

“They already said we would love to do one after with you but obviously we need to see whether you can hold up a show on your own.

“I remember the next day the producer rang me he was like ‘killed it, the viewer figures have been amazing’.

“But for me and Chris now, we were on the way to LA the other day and we both said we’d love to do presenting together. One thing we haven’t done yet.

“I hate comparisons to Ant and Dec because they’re so big I don’t like to put myself on that scale. And they made a song, bloody hell.

“Me and Chris have had a lot of things thrown our way in terms of shows. We liked what we’ve done with ITV we really enjoyed that, it was done amazingly.

“But we did say presenting because we’d just be like bouncing off each other, we’d like to give it a go, we haven’t done it yet but it needs to be the right thing.

“I think we’ve just got to keep our feet on the ground and keep being Chris and Kem.”
