Fans furious after ITV replace Saturday Night Takeaway with Fast & Furious

They have made the completely inadvisable decision, however, to include Fast Five in the rescheduling, which will air at 22:15, just over an hour after Saturday Night Takeaway would have finished.

Understandably, ITV have been completely ridiculed on social media for the move:
