Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway returns this weekend

After sixteen years - the show is still going strong


Its back! Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway returns to our screens this Saturday, and fans are very excited.

The popular entertaining duo, who won their 17th NTA this year, return with their weekend variety show this Saturday.

The live show brings a 90’s retro feel to TV featuring audience surprises, outlandish stunts and some A-list celebrity guests.

This weekend’s debut is set to be as big, bold and beautiful as ever as Kylie Minogue kicks things off with a bang performing on the show.

X Factor runner-up turned The Voice coach Olly Murs will also swap his rotating chair and take up the coveted announcer spot.

The viral Undercover pranks continue this season as Britain’s Got Talent colleague Amanda Holden will become the first to face the undercover antics.

She now joins stars like Jamie Oliver, Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Gordon Ramsey, who have all fell victim to the show’s hilarious prank segment.

Fans recently predicted a romance between Scarlett and Ant McPartlin, but Scarlett has since strongly denied the claims, as she said Ant and Dec are “like the brothers [she] never had”.

The boys will also launch the show’s biggest-ever Place on the Plane giveaway.

Metro has also reported that Ant McPartlin’s make-up artist wife Lisa Armstrong has been ‘axed’ from new series of Saturday Night Takeaway, after the pair publicly split earlier this year.

The show airs this Saturday at 7pm on ITV1, but Irish TV3 viewers will have to wait until 9pm before Ant and Dec hits our screens, after Irelands Got Talent and its spin-off show ‘Irelands Got Mór Talent’.

Here’s a reminder of last season’s most enjoyable moments:
