“We love what Holly did, but we’re very much looking forward to Ant coming back and I think it’s going to be an amazing series,” Richard Cowles, the director said while at a Bafta Masterclass.

“I think the job is for us to create a series and cast where everyone wants to come back and watch more, so I’m not worried [about ratings].”

“I’m looking forward to seeing Ant and Dec back again,” he added.

The presenter returned to television presenting earlier this year on Britain’s Got Talent.
