Saturday Night Takeaway fans fume ‘what happened’ as they ‘switch off’

Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway left viewers divided tonight and some even claimed to “switch off” the ITV programme. While some viewers described the show, which has been running for 20 years, as “top entertainment”, others were less than impressed.

Saturday night’s instalment was action-packed and saw the comedy duo bring back the Ring My Door segment and Sam Thompson even gatecrashed JLS’ karaoke performance. The Ring My Doorbell part of the show is a game where people in the audience can win £500 if they see their doorbell on the screen.

Two houses show up each time, and the person who lives there has to yell out. Then, someone like a neighbour has to dash to the doorbell with an object that Ant and Dec have picked.

Whoever gets to the doorbell first wins £500 for themselves and another £500 for the house owner. They usually play about three times during the segment.

One fan even had to turn down their TV sound every time this part came on to keep their home calm. A fan wrote on X: “Does anyone else’s dog go off at ding dong that’s my doorbell.”

Discussing the show, another fan said: “Had to turn off what a load of nonsense and the constant cheering has given me a headache #SaturdayNightTakeaway.”

A third agreed: “To be honest I’m done with #SaturdayNightTakeaway , it’s just a cacophony of noise and inane audience clapping. Hopefully, it won’t come back.”

“When’s this s**t gonna end? #SaturdayNightTakeaway,” another asked as a fifth commented: “I find #saturdaynighttakeaway boring nowadays. #antanddec.”

“Whatever happened to #SaturdayNightTakeaway It really is very poor TV, when it used to be the highlight of the week. Really really bad,” a sixth stated.

However, not everyone shared the same views as one fan praised: “@itvtakeaway so much. Light relief is back where it belongs at a time when it’s needed most. Top-quality entertainment at its most satisfying, bravo @antanddec.”

This comes after details were released about the grand finale of the series, which won’t be returning next year. It was previously confirmed by Ant and Dec that the show would be taking a break.

“We can’t believe there are only a few shows left and we’re getting closer to the end,” Ant said.

“This series has been very special to make and we’re looking forward to making the last show a party to end all parties. The SNT production team has been working non-stop to ensure this special, two-hour finale has that SNT magic from start to finish.”

Declan added: “The finale will be a real celebration of Saturday Night Takeaway over the years. We’re honoured and touched that for 20 series it’s been part of Saturday night TV viewing for so many families across the country. We’re giving it (and us! ) a rest for now, but we’ll take away and treasure some very special memories and moments. We will most certainly miss it.”

For the big final show, the famous pop group Girls Aloud will be the Star Guest Announcer. The show will be longer than usual and packed with stars like Ashley Roberts, S-Club, Scarlett Moffatt, Andi Peters, Kaiser Chiefs, Jordan North, and Tony Hadley.

There will also be a cool montage showing the best bits from all 20 series of the show, lots of live surprises, and an amazing End of the Show Show!

You can watch Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway every Saturday at 7PM on ITV1 and ITVX.
