This Saturday (9th April) will be the last in the season, and will see the Geordie duo joined by lots of stars for one more evening of entertainment.

Saturday Night Takeaway trailer

ITV released a few teaser clips before the series returned, including a few memes featuring the Geordie duo.

If that wasn't enough, we also got a sneak peek at Ant and Dec's undercover mission to prank a seriously unimpressed Jeremy Clarkson as they stage a fake protest at his new farm.

In the clip, Clarkson arrives at his property to find a group of protestors waving sign boards around.

Little does he know they're being told what to do by Ant, who is watching the entire thing from another location and feeding information to the actors at the scene – including Dec.
