Ant McPartlin Gets Hit By Massive 'Plane' On ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’

Fans were well excited to see the return of Saturday Night Takeaway with Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly at the helm.

But they were even more keen after the awesome TV duo revealed where the season finale of the ITV programme would be held.

In just six weeks' time, Ant and Dec will head to Universal Orlando to present the show. Lucky bastards - that place has some very decent amusement rides. But when they were making the announcement on last night's show, there was a hilarious wee blunder.

Huge dolls from the Madagascar franchise and airline staff marched onto the stage, followed by the TV presenters and half an airplane.

As the applause died down, Ant started explaining what all the bells and whistles were for, only for the fake fuselage to edge a bit forward to nudge the 42-year-old in the back.

It's hard to tell whether it was deliberate, or whether TV favourite Stephen lost control of the prop.

People lapped up the cheeky moment, but then quickly raced to find out how to get tickets to the finale.

For those lucky people who do manage to get a golden ticket to the finale in Orlando, they'll be treated to some celebrity guest appearances, the traditional Saturday Night Takeaway games and some musical performances.

They'll stay at the Loews Royal Pacific resort and have plenty of time to enjoy Universal's three theme parks. Not one, not two, but three bloody amusement parks.

A lot of attention was also paid to Ant's performance last night, with some calling him 'panicky' and 'anxious' because he stumbled over the teleprompter and choked on his words once or twice. While there were a few negative comments on social media, many rushed to his support.

Hayley wrote: "For god sake will people give Ant McPartlin a break! The poor guy probably was just nervous! I think he looked the best he has in a long time."

Sammi added: "Some absolutely vile comments regarding Ant McPartlin tonight on here. I don't normally bother but it's really pissed me off! He's a professional, it's live TV, it's the first show, ffs leave him alone! I thought it was great, well done lads!"
