And Dick and Dom are now planning to return to TV with a new game show for the grownup viewers of their 2004 hit series In Da Bungalow.

Exciting! Dick and Dom- Richard McCourt, 44, and Dominic Wood, 43, -are hoping to return to TV with a game show for the now-grownup viewers of In Da Bungalow (pictured in 2014)

The show involves playing games against the pair, with the contestants trying to win Dick and Dom’s earnings.     

Richard revealed: ‘We’ve been moving to that millennial generation – the kids that grew up with us.

‘They play games against us to try and win our money. It went really well. We’re going to start running in the pilots for it, so fingers crossed.’   

MailOnline has contacted Dick and Dom’s representatives for further comment.

In Da Bungalow was a huge hit with young viewers in the 00s, winning two BAFTAS and sparking a craze for shouting ‘bogies’ in shops and other public places.

It ran from on CBBC from 2002 to 2006 and saw contestants, known as Bungalow Heads, try to win points so they could claim prizes.

Reflecting on the saying, Richard proudly explained that people still shout ‘bogies’ and him and Dominic now and they often find parents who watched their show are encouraging their own children to do it. 

He said: ‘I think we are on the third generation… The kids that have grown up with in Da Bungalow are between 25 and 35, so they’ve had kids and are teaching their kids Bogies. 

‘I’ll be in the supermarket and you can see them egg their kids on to shout bogies.’

In a recent interview with Cherwell, the pair emphasised that they do not mind being remembered for ‘bogies’.

Asked if they feel ‘disappointed’ for the link, Dom said: ‘No, not at all. We’re incredibly proud of it. I want to know what it feels like again. 

‘Working on In Da Bungalow was this complete synergy of a group of people moving forward together. It was like an army. Everyone was in sync with each other.’ 

And since In Da Bungalow ended way back in 2006, Dick and Dom have appeared on shows such as Celebrity Come Dine With Me and MasterChef in 2013.

They also have a little game show hosting experiences after presenting Sky One’s Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old? in 2009.

As well as presenting, the double act have made a name for themselves as DJs on the festival circuit and entertain their 32.5K Instagram followers with entertaining videos.
