Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway
 
Ant and Dec are back where they belong, as the kings of Saturday night entertainment return with a brand new series of Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.
 
Packed full of popular features like Undercover and I’m A Celebrity….Get Out Of Me Ear, as well as showbiz guests, exclusive performances, and outrageous live stunts. The BAFTA and National Television Award winning series will celebrate its milestone 100th episode, promising viewers even more surprises than ever before.
 
TV’s favourite duo are once again joined by on screen sidekicks Scarlett Moffatt and Stephen Mulhern for a high octane opening show that sees Kylie Minogue give the first performance of her new single, as well as stepping back in time to sing some of her biggest hits, in the legendary End of Show Show. Olly Murs takes the reigns as Guest Announcer, while the boys travel back through time in Ant vs Dec for a dare devil Monster Truck challenge and Scarlett Moffatt will be out in a mystery location looking to fill the front row of the studio audience.
 
With the biggest Place on the Plane giveaway, Takeaway also gears up for its most exciting finale ever where Ant and Dec will be seeing out the series in style live from an undisclosed location, to be revealed in the first show of the series.
 
Ant and Dec are also on the case as super sleuths in the follow up to The Missing Crown Jewels; as members of The Honoured, a secret service staffed by individuals with honours, they are tasked with solving a new mystery when members of the organisation start to go missing. With an all-star cast that includes Joanna Lumley, Michael Sheen, Emilia Fox and David Walliams, can Ant and Dec reveal the identity of the Big Baddie at the centre of the whodunit?
 
Amanda Holden falls victim of the first Undercover of the series, as Ant and Dec wreak havoc during a shopping segment on QVC, in their most nerve wracking hidden camera prank in the show’s history.  Meanwhile, more celebrities will be following Ant and Dec’s every instruction as they step forward to face I’m A Celebrity….Get Out Of Me Ear.
 
Stephen Mulhern’s pop up game show In For A Penny is also back, with Stephen taking to the streets of Britain offering anyone who has a penny in their pocket the chance to play for up to £1,000.
 
Rita Ora, Paloma Faith and George Ezra will sing out the show in upcoming End of Show Shows, and Alan Carr will be taking to the mic as Guest Announcer. The Script will also be taking part in Sing-a-long Live.
 
Expect high energy entertainment from start to finish as Saturday night’s most feel good series returns to kick start the weekend with the happiest 90 minutes of the week.
