Series overview

The multi award-winning Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway returns live to ITV on Saturday 22nd February for the happiest ninety minutes of the week. 

TV’s most popular duo are back with a whole host of new and exclusive features, guests, live surprises and outrageous stunts along with all of the Saturday Night Takeaway favourites that viewers know and love.

Undercover and I’m A Celebrity…Get Out Of Me Ear will both return for the new series with some of the biggest celebrities taking part. 

Ant and Dec are back on the case as super sleuths in a brand new mini-series.  The duo are still members of 'The Honoured' charged with looking after Britain’s security and this time round they’ve been called in not just because Earth needs saving. There's an intergalactic security issue!  Ant and Dec will battle aliens and a secret race called The Squittarianuvians. Guest stars in the new series include Hugh Bonneville, Emily Atack, Amanda Holden, Richard Ayoade, Amber Gill, Paddy McGuinness, Simon Cowell with lots more celebrity surprises.

Stephen Mulhern will return, putting the boys through brand new high-octane Ant vs Dec challenges.

The boys will become two Pandas called Howai and Wayai at London Zoo in a new feature called Don’t Feed The Pandas.  A realistic Panda enclosure was created at the Zoo as children along with their teachers visited the animals.  Once the adults weren’t looking the Panda’s Howai and Wayai (Ant and Dec in realistic prosthetic costumes) started trying to persuade the kids to give them the Zoo keepers lunch – will the children believe that Pandas can actually talk?!

Episode 1

The Pussycat Dolls will join Ant and Dec in the first show of the new series performing some of their biggest hits in the legendary End of the Show Show with multi-award winning, international singing sensation Camila Cabello as the first Guest Announcer.

Expect high energy live entertainment from start to finish as Saturday night’s most feel good series returns to kick start the weekend with a bang.
