ITV have revealed that Little Ant and Dec are not returning to Saturday Night Takeaway later this month.
Ant and Dec’s miniature duo have been dropped from Saturday Night Takeaway as they’ve quite literally outgrown their roles.
ITV have revealed that Little Dec (Haydn Reid) has his SATs next year and Little Ant (Neil Overend) is moving to high school – ITV agreed that it felt like the right time for them to move on and focus on their studies.
As of yet there are no plans to replace them.
Little Ant and Dec ended Saturday Night Takeaway on a high last year after a huge finale episode was broadcast live from Walt Disney World.
Haydn and Neil replaced James Pallister and Dylan McKenna in 2014 after they outgrew the roles.
In 2016 reports suggested that James had been working as a vehicle technician for BMW.
Queen of the Jungle, Scarlett Moffatt will return to the new series as well as Stephen Mulhern.
Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway will return 24th February 2018 on ITV.
