Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are two of the UK's most popular TV stars, having presented a string of successful ITV series including I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here and Pop Idol.

"British people watched them grow up on TV. These are two people who really like each other."
Mr Gurin was the man who introduced the US to Anne Robinson through the American version her quiz, The Weakest Link.
