During ITV’s The Story Of SMTV Live, the comedy duo and their former co-host Cat reminisced about the sketches they did on the children’s programme.
The trio did many skits on SM:TV Live including Chums, Wonky Donkey and of course, Cat’s Chat Line, which was actually a spoof for a sex chat line.
Speaking about the sketch, Ant quizzed Cat on whether she would let her children watch it now.
‘It’s spoofing a sex chat line, on Saturday mornings,’ he laughed.
Turning to Cat he asked: ‘And you’re cool with that yeah? Would you let your kids watch that, would you?
‘Let your boys watch that now, would you?’
Taking to Twitter, viewers couldn’t believe ‘the stuff they got away with on the show’ including the Cat’s Chat Line sketch.
One viewer commented: ‘I can’t believe the stuff they got away with Cats sex line.’
They probrably would not get away with a single second of #SMTVLive these days. That’s the sad thing!!— Jonathan Lansana (@tvgenius05) December 26, 2020
While another said: ‘You wouldn’t get away with a show like this today. It just wouldn’t work. Too many parents would be complaining.’
One added: ‘You absolutely 100% would not get away with half the stuff they did back then now!!’
‘Omg the amount of stuff they did on SM:TV back then. No way you could get away with that now,’ another said.
SM:TV Live is available to watch on the ITV hub.
