Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway 2017 starts a week from today and here's all you need to know.

Fresh from winning 'Best Entertainment Programme' at the National Television Awards 2017, Ant & Dec triumphantly return with a brand new series of 'Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway' next Saturday night.


Saturday night's most high octane and feel good show is back, promising even more live surprises, stunts and hidden camera antics - with big name guests, an exciting new comedy serial and a jet set series finale which will be a British television first.

When does Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway 2017 start?

Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway 2017 begins on Saturday, February 25 on ITV at 7PM and is expected to air for up to eight weeks.

Ant and Dec have all sorts planned for the show, including a brand new all star whodunnit.

Hot on the heels of last year’s "Who Shot Simon Cowell?" (the spoof mystery that kept the nation guessing) comes "The Missing Crown Jewels" - a brand new comedy mini-serial that sees the royal regalia stolen by a mysterious masked villain on Ant & Dec’s watch.

In a brand new item "Make ‘Em Laugh" Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will go head to head with Ant & Dec. The rules are simple - they have to make each other laugh using costumes, props and their imaginations. You laugh, you lose.

Stephen Mulhern once again presides over the drama of "Ant vs Dec", which this time sees the duo face off in a series of themed head to heads. Stephen is also unleashed on the streets of Britain for a new pop-up game show - "In for A Penny". Anyone who has a one pence piece can enter and be in with a chance of winning a wedge of cash.


This year the Saturday Night Takeaway family welcomes a new addition in the shape of 'Queen of the Jungle' Scarlett Moffatt who will be helping Ant and Dec out throughout the series.

Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, Saturday nights on ITV from February 25.
