Ant & Dec announced earlier this year that Saturday Night Takeaway will take a break after its next series.

Ant said: “We love making Saturday Night Takeaway, but reaching the milestone of 20 series seemed like the perfect time to pause for a little while and catch our breath.”


Dec added: “We still have a momentous 20th series to look forward to first so we will do our best to go out (for now) with a bang in 2024!”

However the pair aren’t going anywhere, continuing to front ITV’s hit shows I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, Britain’s Got Talent and Limitless Win
