Fans of Ant and Dec were thrilled to see the duo reuniting after Ant's presenting break for the most recent series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here, and now the pair are reprising their much-loved Saturday Night Takeaway.

ITV has announced the show is coming back, after a break in 2019, and will begin on Saturday 22 February.

"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," ITV announced.

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

Also coming back is The Place on the Plane giveaway, where viewers are given the chance to see the Saturday Night Takeaway finale abroad. Ant and Dec will be seeing out the new series live from an undisclosed location which will be revealed in the first show of the new series.

In addition, one lucky viewer in the first live show will receive a truly life changing surprise - the biggest Saturday Night Takeaway has ever given, ITV said.

There will be a brand new mini-series, too. Ant and Dec are still members of 'The Honoured' charged with looking after Britain’s security and this time, 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," ITV said.

Stephen Mulhern will return to host the series' Ant vs Dec challenges and there are plenty more celebrities getting involved.

The Pussycat Dolls will join Ant and Dec in the first show of the new series performing some of their biggest hits with singer Camila Cabello as the first Guest Announcer.

A new, somewhat bizarre, feature in the show has been announced by ITV.

"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," a press release said.

"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?!"

Well, we're excited to see all of the fun unfold.

And & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway will begin on Saturday 22 February on ITV.
