Dec will be presenting without Ant McPartlin this Saturday, but regular co-hosts Scarlett Moffatt and Stephen Mulhern are set to have “expanded” roles in the ITV show for the next two episodes.
Last week’s episode of Saturday Night Takeaway was pulled from the schedules, but Dec announced that this Saturday’s episode as well as the series finale live from Orlando, Florida would go ahead.
Dec will be the only live presenter in this weekend’s Saturday Night Takeaway. However, Ant will still appear in prerecorded segments of the show.
Guests for this Saturday’s episode include Stephen Merchant as the Star Guest Announcer, band The Script for Singalong Live and Paloma Faith, who will be the star in the End of the Show Show.
