Declan Donnelly prepares to host without Ant

Declan Donnelly prepares to host without Ant

"I've got twice the amount of work to do so we're going to crack on".

The presenter will be without Ant McPartlin for the penultimate episode in the series although Scarlett Moffatt and Stephen Mulhern will be on hand in their regular support roles.

'Just want to say a big congratulations to Dec @antanddec unbelievable job tonight ant will be so proud of you bro and @ThisisDavina so good to see you on the show tonight x, ' one fan wrote, leading the troops. Thank you for that very warm welcome, I really appreciate it.

But Dec made the decision to go ahead alone for the final two shows of the series for the fans after Ant's return to rehab.

Confirmed guests include Paloma Faith, who will be performing at the end of the programme, and Stephen Merchant, who will act as the guest announcer.

But Dec shot him down, quipping: "Thanks but no".

@Mitchinator9339 wrote on Twitter: "Dec did such a good job on #SaturdayNightTakeaway tonight".

He tweeted: "All rehearsals done, your #SaturdayNightTakeaway will be ready in an hour!"




Emotional fans took to Twitter to praise the 42-year-old, as he returned to the ITV stage alone on Saturday. "See you on the telly at 7pm. D x".

Ant and Dec Saturday Night Takeaway is filmed in central London and you need to be over 18 in order to attend the filming.

A third continued: "Cannot wait man".

Declan Donnelly is to host Saturday Night Takeaway on his own for the first time in the show's history on Saturday evening as co-host Ant McPartlin takes time away from television, following his arrest for drink-driving.

The best TV presenters you love now and the presenters you'll never forget in pictures.

Just a little photo to prove that we don't just wing it, there is actually a script!

An earlier photo showed the studio being prepared for tonight's show, along with the caption: "It's a studio day today, which means we're back on your telly tonight!" Casting for the show is now ongoing with Saturday Night Takeaway set to air for the next six weeks.
