Ant & Dec are back on ITV for the 19th season of Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. The first episode of season 19 aired last night [Saturday 25 February] to much public delight. Chock full of celebrity guests, the premiere saw Doctor Who and Good Omens actor David Tennant as the first guest announcer of the series; Joe Wicks and Claudia Winkleman stoped by; and the Undercover prank claimed Alison Hammond and Rylan Clark as its first victims.

Fans of the series will know that the popular gameshow is filled with action and merges the fun of celebrity antics with public participation. The brand new season is no different, with the returning hosts, who have presented the show since 2002, bringing back a number of favourite segments, from Undercover and Ring My Bell to Singalong Live and the End of the Show Shows.
