Ant McPartlin scenes to air on Saturday Night Takeaway

But following Ant's vehicle crash last week that saw him charged with drink-driving, it's said to be "touch and go" if the series will ever air. It had been reported that Donnelly would host the show alone after McPartlin requested a leave of absence, but it was ultimately withdrawn from the schedule. Well, because the third star of the show is the format itself.

The message was posted on the antanddecofficial Instagram page, which Dec shares with his presenting partner Ant McPartlin.

A source is quoted as telling the newspaper: "Showing clips of [Ant] in a pub is not very fair bearing in mind they were filmed before anyone knew about the demons he was battling".

The 42-year-old presenter will not appear live on the programme this Saturday (31Mar18), as he is now seeking help for his problems in rehab following a drink-drive crash earlier this month. "But filming has stopped because Ant has gone back into rehab and stepped down from TV commitments this year".

"He said in a statement: "[Ant] has asked for time off for the foreseeable future".

Just yesterday it was revealed that Ant will in fact appear on Saturday Niht Takeaway this weekend, after bosses made a decision to screen the drama he has already filmed for the show.

"Saturday Knight Takeaway" sketch shows Ant and Dec as secret agents tasked with solving mysteries.

While this led to the cancellation of last week's "Saturday Night Takeaway", ITV confirmed that the final two episodes of the current series would still go ahead as planned, with Declan Donnelly hosting the show without his usual co-presenter.

'Everyone at ITV and the Takeaway team feels we owe it to the audience to complete the series'.
