​Audience Accidentally Laugh During Tragic Family Story On Saturday Night Takeaway

​Audience Accidentally Laugh During Tragic Family Story On Saturday Night Takeaway

Ant and Dec had a seriously awkward moment to handle on Saturday Night Takeaway when the audience laughed at something on the screen behind them - just as the hosts were talking about a family's tragic story.

Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway returned to our tellies last night with the first episode of a new series.

To kick things off, the Geordie duo decided to dish out a surprise to one well-deserving family, who had been through a particularly difficult year.

The presenters revealed that the two people receiving the surprise were actually audience members Petra and Simon Williams, and showed them on a screen queuing outside the studio - having been told that tonight's audience was full, but if they hung around they might be able to get some seats.

Ant explained: "What they don't know is that we've actually saved two seats for them because we're about to give them the surprise of their life."

Dec added: "That's because they're part of an extraordinary family. They live up in the north east and they've got three lovely kids - Amelia Paige, Leyla Grace and Bailey."

Ant then said: "Tragically three years ago they lost their daughter Darcey-Lee when she was just nine and a half weeks old."

It was at this moment that the audience began to laugh - much to Ant and Dec's shock and horror.

In an attempt to move the uncomfortable moment along, Ant continued: "OK, let's not concentrate on the picture for the moment."

Viewers at home also weren't sure whether to laugh or cry, with one tweeting: "Not like a British audience to be distracted by a screen when someone is talking about something serious like the death of a baby #saturdaynighttakeaway."

Another said: "Well that wasn't awkward at all, bad time to laugh Audience! #takeaway #saturdaynighttakeaway."

Thankfully, Petra and Simon weren't waiting out in the cold all night, and were eventually surprised with the news that the show had bought them a house.
