Saturday Night Takeaway Viewers Complain About Ring My Bell Game

Saturday Night Takeaway Viewers Complain About Ring My Bell Game

Last night, fans tuned into another edition of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.

But while many fans of the comedy duo have loved having them back with a new series, some weren't best pleased with a specific segment.

One of their many competitions is called 'Ring my Bell', and involves viewers running to their neighbour's house in order to win a huge cash prize.

Basically, Ant and Dec show a video from the door bell camera from an audience member's home.


They then have to stand up and shout 'ding, dong that's my bell' when they realise what's going on.

Now, if one of their neighbours is watching from home and spots what's going on, they have 45 seconds to run to their front door, ring the bell themselves and shout 'ring my bell'.

Sounds pretty fun, doesn't it?

Well, a number of viewers said that while they thought it was hilarious, they said it caused their dogs to start barking their heads off at the front door.

One fan said: "Dogs going mad at the ring my bell."

Another chimed in: "This door bell segment might have been hilarious but it caused absolute mayhem with our dog barking over and over at the noise."

"Quiet Sunday morning watching @itvtakeaway on catch up with our dog going mental thinking it’s our doorbell going every time they play Ring My Bell," put a third. "Genius game, but the neighbours aren’t happy @antanddec."


While another added: "My dog never stopped barking at ring my bell…. She thought it was my front door."

Following the game, Ant and Dec apologised for any issues it may have caused for people and their pets.

In a tweet, the pair said: "Apologies to Britain’s dog owners for tonight’s ‘Ring My Bell’ segment."


Last week saw the return of the popular light entertainment series and the lads kicked things off with a little visit to Jeremy Clarkson's Diddly Squat Farm in Oxfordshire.

But if you are familiar with the show, you will know that this was never going to be a normal trip.

The pair got themselves dressed up as eco-warriors who were picketing outside the farm over the 61-year-old's treatment of his soil, holding signs with messages saying 'Soil has feelings, Clarkson doesn't' written on them.

Needless to say, the former Top Gear presenter wasn't best pleased, and even managed to get himself 'arrested'.
