Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly are bringing their popular Saturday Night Takeaay series back to ITV next week, it has been confirmed.
The Geordie duo will be back to entertain the nation on Saturday, February 20 with 90 minutes of family fun.
Confirmed guests for the launch show include Jamie and Harry Redknapp in an hilarious Get Out Of Me Ear and Take That frontman Gary Barlow in a spectacular End of the Show Show.
Others taking part in the seven part series will include Masked Singer star Davina McCall and Olympic hero Sir Mo Farah.
ITV have promised that Ant & Dec have another fantastic giveaway planned for viewers which will be revealed in the first show of the new series.
X Factor sensation and I'm A Celebrity star Fleur East is back with a brand new segment and Stephen Mulhern returns to put the boys through his usual brand of high-octane, surprise Ant vs Dec challenges.
The Honoured trilogy series has now finished and we have a brand-new mini-series called Double Trouble in which the hosts have been cloned and the clones have gone rogue
The new adventure will feature many celebrities including Bear Grylls, Prue Leith, Rob Brydon, Alison Hammond and Jermaine Jenas.
The best pal duo will also revive their Panda alter-egos Bam and Boo after appearing in London Zoo last series. This time they will be in legendary toy store Hamleys.
A ITV spokesperson said: "With a virtual studio audience of over 300 people alongside the return of Win the Ads expect high energy live entertainment from start to finish as Saturday night’s most feel good series returns to kick start the weekend with a bang."
Announcing the show's comeback, Ant and Dec took to Twitter last month to confirm the return of the "happiest ninety minutes of the week".
From their joint account, they wrote: "The happiest ninety minutes of the week is back this February! Who's ready for the non-stop show show to be back on your telly? @itvtakeaway."
In a recently-released teaser for the 17th series, Declan could be seen slipping into a gold dress and blonde wig, dressing up for one of the show's many comedy sketches.
Taking advantage of the ITV wardrobe department, the judges transformed in the trailer, donning cocktail gowns, dressing up as PJ and Duncan, and eventually working their usual tailored suits.
Scenes from Ant vs Dec to Win The Ads and the End of the Show Show could also be glimpsed in the brand-new trailer.
Last year's Saturday Night Takeaway underwent a radical format revamp when the coronavirus pandemic struck, ditching the live studio audience and enforcing social distancing.
For the series finale, Ant and Dec hosted the show from their homes, broadcasting via video call as they said goodbye to the 16th season.
SNT has won the comedy double act a number of awards over the years, most recently landing The Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award back in 2018.
