Saturday Night Takeaway: Dec hosts without Ant

Saturday Night Takeaway: Dec hosts without Ant

Ant McPartlin will continue to appear on Saturday Night Takeaway this evening.

Ant McPartlin is taking time away from television after his arrest for drink-driving.

Paloma Faith was on hand to perform a couple of tracks during the show, while guest announcer Stephen Merchant, and regular contributors Stephen Merchant and Scarlett Moffatt also helped out.

On Friday Dec revealed he was heading for rehearsals solo in a message on Twitter.

Producers are still deciding whether Dec speak about Ant or ignore the matter entirely.

They told The Sun newspaper: "Obviously it means Ant will still be on the show in some form".

"They want to be respectful to people involved in Ant's auto accident, while not bringing down the mood of the show".

On World TB Day, Govt launches new initiatives to combat TB
While figures have gone down over the last six years in England, another issue in the battle to eradicate TB is drug resistance. Genital tuberculosis is a prominent factor for infertility not only in females but also in males.

The 42-year-old joked that the presenter did not have a seat on the plane to Florida next week but he had the opportunity to win himself a ticket.

"Think Dec's doing a great job".

"Takeaway is all about having fun and they fear a sombre start may seriously effect the quality of the output".

Presenting the show on his own for the first time in his history, Dec was given a rapturous welcome by the studio audience who he high-fived on his way to the stage.

The ongoing sketches, which include Joanna Lumley, Michael Sheen, Emilia Fox and David Walliams, see Ant and Dec trying to discover who has been stealing some of the nation's best loved TV and media personalities.

At the moment, the ITV entertainment programme is called 'Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway,' but now viewers are demanding that Ant's name is removed from the titles altogether.

"We made a promise to take hundreds of deserving winners to Florida to watch the series finale, and we will honour that".
