ITV made the decision to pull last week's episode of "Saturday Night Takeaway" following Ant's arrest but the broadcaster later confirmed that the final two episodes would be aired as normal but with Dec presenting for the first time on his own.

Ant, 42, will be off television "for the foreseeable future" after being charged with drink-driving following a three-car collision earlier this month.

Fans twetted: "It's Davina and Decs #saturdaynighttakeaway by the look of things!'; '@antanddec @ThisisDavina Dec and Davina I'm in tears"; "Ah yes, I love that show called Davina and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway"; '#SaturdayNightTakeaway so its Dec and Davina (oh Ant)'.

Dr. Helen Driscoll is a psychologist at Sunderland University and feels for December. "I've got twice the amount of work to do so we're going to crack on".

Last week's show was cancelled.

If you would like to take part yourself or by setting up a friend or family member to be surprised by Ant and Dec live on the telly, you can nominate them behind their backs.


Merchant then asked Dec if he needed a hand presenting as there was "a little bit of space on the stage", before the pair exchanged a joke about their height difference. He appeared in the opening titles and also in the continuation of pre-recorded sketch Saturday Knight Takeaway which also starred Joanna Lumley in her regular role.

Dozens of fans - including fellow broadcasters Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid and Dermot O'Leary - congratulated Dec on his successful performance on social media.

Taking to Twitter, Dec wrote: 'Thanks for all your lovely messages tonight, they are VERY much appreciated, I'm glad you enjoyed the show.

"I know Ant would be proud of you". Finally, the show's producers may opt to avoid mentioning Ant's absence entirely.

It refers to a competition that has been running throughout the series, which has given viewers a chance to win tickets to the show's finale at the Universal resort in Orlando.
