Episode 7
It’s all aboard for the dazzling grand finale of the series, live from the deck of a cruise ship in Barcelona! 
It’s a suitably star-studded affair as star of stage and screen James Nesbitt takes the helm as the Guest Announcer, the UK’s greatest tennis player and Wimbledon legend Andy Murray meets cheeky Little Ant & Dec and 80’s pop sensation super hunk Peter Andre gets to Singalong Live with his classic Mysterious Girl.
The truth finally comes out in the last thrilling installment of Who Shot Simon Cowell? and the boys do battle once again in Ant vs Dec - but who will beat The Cube to win the series?  There’s a huge surprise for one unsuspecting Cruise passenger and we round off the series with one of the most spectacular all-singing, all-dancing End Of The Show Shows that has ever been seen.
All that plus one lucky audience member gets to find out what the Fickle Finger Of Fate has in store for them in the only show that says ‘Don’t just watch the adverts – Win ‘em!”
Series overview
The ultimate family entertainment show is back as Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway returns to ITV, complete with big name showbiz guests, high octane stunts and challenges, ambitious undercover set ups and a whole host of live shocks and surprises to unleash upon both the studio audience and the viewers at home.
The only series on TV that lets its audience ‘win the ads’ returns with a star packed blockbuster whodunit, its biggest ever viewer giveaway, a series finale like never before, and a new presenter, as Stephen Mulhern takes the reigns as the host of Ant vs Dec.
The series features a brand new comedy whodunit Who Shot Simon Cowell?, which sees the TV talent show supremo gunned down at a birthday party, with a host of famous faces in the frame – including David Walliams, Keith Lemon, Louis Walsh, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, Olly Murs, Caroline Flack, Stacey Solomon, Ashleigh and Pudsey, Diversity, and even Ant and Dec themselves. In a plot masterminded by Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall, can detectives Kevin Whately and Emilia Fox crack the case and determine which of Cowell’s celebrity friends pulled the trigger? Expect more twists and turns than an Agatha Christie novel as the mystery unravels…
Ant and Dec’s TV offspring, the inimitable Little Ant and Dec, will be asking a range of international superstars the questions that no one else dares to.
For the first time in the show’s history, Ant and Dec will step out of the studio to present the entire series finale live from the deck of a cruise ship on the Mediterranean, and in its biggest on air competition to date, up to 150 lucky viewers will have a chance to win a two week stay on the same very ship.
Meanwhile, with 7:26pm on a Saturday night scientifically proven to be the happiest minute of the week, we’ll be celebrating by giving some deserving Takeaway viewers one minute they will never ever forget.
Every show will sign off in spectacular style when as some of the world’s biggest and best performers take to the Takeaway stage for a one-off performance in the End of Show Show.
Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway is an ITV Studios production for ITV.
