A source told The Sun newspaper: "The idea of a book to mark 30 years has been talked about by Ant and Dec and their team for a while.

"But as soon as word got out, the industry publishers were chomping at the bit.

The idea of a book to mark 30 years has been talked about by Ant and Dec and their team for a while.

"As it stands 12 publishing houses are bidding for it and it will sell for a massive figure. It'll easily be the celebrity book of the year as Ant and Dec are national treasures."

The book - which is said to not be an autobiography - would be their second after their 2010 release Ooh! What a Lovely Pair: Our Story, and the idea would be to release it later this year to fit in with their 30-year milestone.

The insider added: "They both starred in Byker Grove together for the first time in 1990, around September time, so the thinking is to release it to coincide with that if they can get it together in time."
