Saturday Night Takeaway delayed as ITV show announces schedule shake-up

ITV Saturday Night Takeaway viewers are set to be very disappointed as the show is being pushed back to a later time tonight.

The show has had to be pushed back in the schedule for two Six Nations matches taking place on ITV.

ITV viewers will see coverage of France v Wales starting at 1.55pm and Ireland v England at 4.30pm.

To accommodate the change, Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway will then air at the later time of 7.15pm and end at 8.45pm.

Ant and Dec’s show has been pushed back to fit in the rugby

This means Starstruck also starts 15 minutes later than usual, at 8.45pm instead of 8.30pm, while the Jonathan Ross show will start at 9.55pm, rather than 9.40pm.

The show normally airs at 7pm, but it seems despite the change in time, fans can still expect a fun-packed show.

As well as fan favourites Singalong Live and Murder At Bigwig Manor, viewers will also see ‘Get Out Of Me Ear’ hidden camera stunt starring Joe Wicks.

The show will be on 15 minutes later

Hollywood star Toni Collette is also set to appear on the show as the guest announcer for the week while Jake Shears performs.

Last week, the show was hit with chaos as a performer who was appearing as Shrek fell off the stage during the song.

As fans rushed to social media to share their shock at the accident, presenter Stephen Mulhern had to give them an update.

Fans will not be happy to hear the news

He said one camera: “Don’t worry if you saw Shrek fall off the stage earlier in the programme.

“Don’t fear, he’s in A&E.”

He then reassured the audience that he was teasing them and that the man was okay, adding: “I’m joking, he’s fine.”

Saturday Night Takeaway airs at 7pm on Saturdays on ITV.
