Saturday Night Takeaway: Ant McPartlin's replacement revealed as Dec confirms return?

ITV had already said this Saturday's show, hosted by McPartlin and Donnelly as the TV duo Ant and Dec, would not be aired.

Now friends of Ant claim that his arrest on Sunday for drink driving may have been caused by the breakdown of his marriage.

ITV, meanwhile, has said it 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".

"He's spoken with Dec and ITV and asked for time off for the foreseeable future. As such, Saturday Night Takeaway will not be going ahead this Saturday".

"But in the meantime it looks as though co-stars Stephen Mulhern and Scarlett Moffatt will battle it out to be the main presenter alongside Dec, with Stephen the slight favourite".

TV3 has confirmed that Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway will be replaced by an episode of The Voice UK this weekend.

Referring to the winners who are flown out to Florida for the final episode of the series, he added: "We made a promise to take hundreds of deserving winners to Florida to watch the series finale, and we will honour that".
