It wouldn't be the weekend without Ant and Dec getting up to lots of mischief on Saturday Night Takeaway.


The entertainment show continues this weekend with lots of celebrity joining the Geordie legends in the studio.

It will be the last episode for the year, so viewers can expect to see the usual segments as well as the final instalment of Polter Guys.

The 2022 series will end with a special End of The Show Show, which is being kept under wraps. And to bring it all together, Ant and Dec will be joined by a celebrity guest announcer.

Here's everything you need to know.

Who is this week’s guest announcer on Saturday Night Takeaway?

This week's guest announcer is comedian Lee Mack.

News that he'd be joining Ant and Dec on Saturday was announced on Twitter.

"We're proud to reveal that we've got funnyman @LeeMack as our final star Guest Announcer of the series! #SaturdayNightTakeaway" read a Tweet alongside a clip of Not Going Out star.

Mack is English actor, comedian, and presenter. He's perhaps best known for writing and starring in Not Going Out. He's also appeared on several comedy panel shows, including Would I Lie To You, and hosted Sky's Duck Quacks Don't Echo and They Think It's All Over.

As well as this, he guest hosted Have I Got News for You and Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

It's another solid announcer for the 2022 appearances. Last week's guest announcer was Alan Partridge, played by Steve Coogan. His appearance follows stars who appeared earlier in the series, including RuPaul, Adam Lambert, Paloma Faith, Richard E Grant and Anna Maxwell Martin.
