Lineup For First Saturday Night Takeaway Without Ant McPartlin Revealed

The lineup for the first episode of Saturday Night Takeaway without Ant McPartlin has been revealed as Declan Donnelly gears up to host on his own.

Ant is taking some time out from his presenting duties as he seeks treatment in the wake of his drink driving crisis, and this weekend’s episode has been dropped from the schedule.

When Saturday Night Takeaway returns, Dec will be joined by actor Stephen Merchant as the Star Guest Announcer, with Paloma Faith taking to the stage for the End Of The Show Show.

Stephen Mulhern’s In For A Penny In For A Grand segment will be shown as the presenter takes to the streets of Warrington to help members of the public win cash. And The Script are popping into the studio for Singalong Live!.

More lucky people will win a Place On The Plane to Orlando, Florida in the series finale, and another lucky player will try to win the ads.

Dec recently had to clear up the doubt surrounding the epic Orlando holiday as viewers wondered whether it would go ahead when the upcoming episode was cancelled.
He said: ‘Whilst I never thought I’d be in this position, after much discussion and careful consideration we’ve decided that the remaining two shows of this series of Saturday Night Takeaway will go ahead.’
