Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway returns for a brand new series on ITV this weekend, this is what you can expect.
Ant and Dec will bring back their variety show this weekend – with a twist – there’ll be no studio audience, instead it will feature a live virtual audience who are all at home.
Confirmed guests for the first show of the series include Jamie and Harry Redknapp in an extremely hilarious ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Out Of Me Ear’ and Gary Barlow in a spectacular End of the Show Show.
Stephen Mulhern will return for an epic Ant v Dec and Fleur East is ready to give one viewer the surprise of their lives.
Speaking to DigitalSpy in a recent interview on Apple News+, Dec said: “We did one of the [Takeaways] last year without an audience at all, and that was really odd. It was really weird,
“And then the series we did of BGT, the live semi-finals and the final – that was with a virtual audience on screen as well. Like everything with COVID, everything you do seems to be 20% harder to achieve, whether it’s a meeting or anything. It just makes everything a little bit harder.”
Ant and Dec have teased they’ve spent the last six months filming brand new material for Takeaway, ITV said: “Some of the celebrities taking part in the forthcoming hidden camera hits for the new series include Davina McCall, Sir Mo Farah and Jamie & Harry Redknapp.
“Ant & Dec have another fantastic giveaway planned for viewers which will be revealed in the first show of the new series.”

The Geordie duo have also filmed a brand new drama: “The Honoured trilogy series has now finished and we have a brand-new mini-series called Double Trouble in which Ant & Dec have been cloned and the clones have gone rogue! The new adventure will feature many celebrities including Bear Grylls, Prue Leith, Rob Brydon, Alison Hammond and Jermaine Jenas.”
Lastly, for the first time ever, Takeaway has an extra behind-the-scenes show available on the ITV Hub. Each 10-minute episode will feature new interviews with Ant & Dec and backstage exclusives.
