Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway returned for a new series on ITV.
For the first Ant Vs Dec challenge of the series the duo were challenged with racing around a track in monster trucks in the fastest time.
During Ant’s round he surged over a ramp at the end of his final lap but didn’t clear two stationary cars and unfortunately crashed into them.
Ant was seen holding his arm as he left the truck – Co-host Stephen Mulhern said: “I think he’s hurt his arm by the way he’s holding it.”
Ant put on a brave face and responded: “No, it’s alright, it’s fine” although his body language didn’t agree with what he was saying.
Fans on Twitter shared their concern following Ant’s crash on live telly.
