ITV bosses reveal Ant & Dec replacement after pulling Saturday Night Takeaway

Saturday Night Takeaway will not be airing this week as Ant returns to rehab following his arrest on suspicion of drink driving.

ITV have published their upcoming changes for this Saturday, revealing that The Voice Uk will be replacing the Geordie duo in the primetime slot between 7pm and 9pm.

A repeat of Keith Lemon's Through the Keyhole is set to air immediately afterwards, filling the slot the Voice was originally scheduled in for.

The decision not to air Saturday Night was a joint one made between the show's team, the presenters themselves, and the higher-ups at ITV. Ant himself has reportedly asked for some time off following the crash with two other vehicles which happened on Sunday.

There are two more episodes that were also originally planned to air during this series. Regarding whether they will actually run the network said: "We will be reviewing options for the last two episodes of the series, which would not feature Ant, who is taking time off to seek treatment.

"We very much hope that he gets the help that he needs."
