The live return date of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway has officially been confirmed, with the show set to make a comeback extremely soon.
Although the pair revealed a couple of weeks ago that filming for the new series was underway, a transmission date for the 2021 programme hadn’t been revealed… until now.
Yes, Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway is set to make its highly-anticipated return this February, promising viewers ‘the happiest ninety minutes of the week’.
Fans have even been given a taste at the sort of cheeky antics Ant and Dec are going to get up to in a new promo video for the programme, which shows the pair and Stephen Mulhern wearing a variety of spangly outfits.
Plenty of viewers will surely be grateful that Saturday Night Takeaway is coming back, considering the uncertainty surrounding the longevity of the national lockdown due to the Covid-19 outbreak,.
