Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway will be back next year, it's been confirmed.

Ant and Dec delighted fans by confirming the hit series would return in 2022 in the last of this year's episodes tonight.


The latest run returned with mega viewing figures in February as an average of more than 7 million tuned in for the first episode.

The show has had to work around pandemic restrictions to go ahead, airing with a virtual audience and social distancing.

Highlights from this year's series include a brand new viewer giveaway with more than 240 holidays handed out.

Following The Honoured trilogy, Ant & Dec introduced new mini-series called Double Trouble, which saw Ant & Dec clones go rogue! Famous names appearing in the sketches included football pundit Jermaine Jenas, Bake Off's Prue Leith, survival expert Bear Grylls, actor and comic Rob Brydon and TV host Alison Hammond.

Fluer East joined the show with 'Chase The Rainbow' while Ant v Dec returned with a series of new challenges hosted by Stephen Mulhern.
