SM:TV made a welcome comeback over Christmas, and now fans have been sharing their shock after a clip resurfaced showing Dec making an X-rated joke on the programme.
The footage shows Dec alongside co-presenters Ant and Cat Deeley, speaking about S Club 7’s Rachel Stevens – and fans can’t believe they got away with the comment at the time.
Cat says in the clip: ‘Our number four moment is the pottery wheel with Rachel. The lads always, always get very excited if Rachel or S Club 7 ever come on the show, she’s known as ‘the lovely Rachel’ and is one of our closest friends.
‘This is one moment that I know in particular sticks with Declan,’ she adds.
Dec can be seem moaning to himself in the footage, before saying: ‘I’ve got a st***y now! Am I allowed to say that?’
No-one could have predicted Dec’s comment, and the joke sent Cat and the audience into hysterics.
Presenting duo Ant and Dec recently said that they ‘sexed up’ the show in order to make it a success – judging by this clip, they definitely weren’t joking.
The footage resurfaced on TikTok, and viewers couldn’t believe the presenters got away with the joke at the time.
One said: ‘Not sure he’d be allowed to say that on TV these days.’
‘No way did he say that on SM:TV!’ another said.
Ant and Dec presented hugely popular kids show SM:TV with Cat Deeley between 1998 and 2001, before they left to host Pop Idol.
The duo’s special retrospective SM:TV show over Christmas was part of the duo’s celebrations for 30 years in the entertainment industry.
