The 42-year-old presenter will go it alone for the second week running as he signs off an eventful series of the hit ITV entertainment show.

Following Ant McPartlin’s arrest – and subsequent charge – for drink driving, the decision was made for Dec to continue on his own and host the final two episodes of the series by himself. Last week, Dec won praise from viewers and critics for his first solo effort presenting.

Now, Dec has flown to Orlando and has been busy rehearsing with Stephen Mulhern and Scarlett Moffatt. Here’s the trio behind the scenes at Volcano Bay Water Theme Park:

200 competition winners have been flown over to American after winning a Place on the Plane during giveaways in this series of Takeaway.

Craig David, actress Denise Richards and Jason Derulo have been confirmed as the celebrity stars featuring in the finale.

It’s also been announced that The Rembrandts – the band who sang the Friends theme tune I’ll Be There For You – will perform on the show. What with Denise Richards having played Ross and Monica’s cousin Cassie, it looks like there’s something of a Friends theme afoot.

Meanwhile Stephen will bring In For a Penny across the pond as he unleashes his ridiculous street gameshow on an unwitting American public and Saturday Knight Takeaway will conclude, with the identity of the Overlord finally revealed.
