first solo presenting gig in 20 years, ITV made a decision to broadcast the rest of the Ant and Dec mini-series called Saturday Knight Takeaway.

Dec, 42, opened the show solo for the first-time ever, walking down the stairs without Ant, 42, by his side.

If you would like to take part yourself or by setting up a friend or family member to be surprised by Ant and Dec live on the telly, you can nominate them behind their backs. "I've got twice the amount of work to do so we're going to crack on".

He thanked the audience for giving him a "very, very warm welcome" after an extended standing ovation and he joked with guest Stephen Merchant, the comedian, who asked if he needed a hand presenting as there was "a little bit of space on the stage".

On Saturday afternoon, ITV producers confirmed that Donnelly will be hosting the show alone by tweeting a photo of the script with Donnelly listed as the sole host, although Scarlett Moffatt and Stephen Mulhern will feature in their regular support roles, and comedian Stephen Merchant will be the guest announcer.

Ant did appear in a pre-recorded skit called Saturday Knight Takeaway with Joanna Lumley and his name still appeared in the credits.


Social media was flooded with messages of support and congratulations.

Reid wrote: "He's really easing into it and getting more comfortable as he realises how much the audience is with him". "I don't know what's going to happen but the show must go on", The Mirror states.

Bosses are also said to be considering not discussing the matter at all, and get Dec to continue with the show as normal. "Here's hoping that he will do as great a job at Florida next week".


Earlier this month, Ant revealed that he would be stepping down from all TV commitments as he prepares to enter rehab and was charged with drink-driving.
