Ant and Dec are back on ITV1 once again for their 19th year of Saturday Night Takeaway.


The duo, who first hosted the show in 2002, have returned for a brand new season and bring with them a number of our favourite segments, from Undercover and Ring My Bell to Singalong Live and the End of the Show Shows.

Continuing every Saturday night, season 19 promises to be "the happiest ninety minutes of the week" and it really has been so far.

Since its release this February, episodes have included appearances from the likes of Joe Wicks, Claudia Winkleman, Alison Hammond and Rylan. This week's live show boasts features from 'Queen of the Jungle' Jill Scott, Diversity and of course, huge live surprises for the studio audience and viewers at home.

Meanwhile, the presenters will be looking at how the show is made in Behind the Screens – a new documentary embedded within the production of season 19.
