Saturday Night Takeaway viewers are buzzing after Jordan North’s visit to the North East cinema UK News

Saturday Night Takeaway viewers were left in awe after Radio 1 DJ Jordan North walked into a Cineworld in the North East.

The former I’m a Celebrity star visited Cineworld Boldon Tyne and Wear to visit a very special member of staff. Jordan gave Cineworld employee Karen the shock of her life after bursting into a screen she was working on on the show.

As he approached her, she said, “Hello, you’re live on Saturday Night Takeaway,” as she recoiled completely bewildered by what was going on. She looked so taken aback that Jordan said, “Come here, don’t be afraid.”

Jordan apologized to people waiting for the Morbius movie to start, before telling Karen to say hi to Ant and Dec. He goes on to say, “Karen has been working here for 25 years, now Karen is like the chick here. Everyone loves him.

“She works all the hours God sends and when she’s not working she’s also caring for her mom and grandkids. We think Karen you deserve a takeaway getaway.”

Karen looks elated as she hands over a getaway to go as confetti goes off and meets her loved ones. During their “happiest minute of the week segment,” Ant and Dec hand out getaway tickets to audience members and viewers at home.

One person on Twitter said: “I don’t usually watch Ant and Dec’s Saturday night takeaways but I saw Cineworld Boldon manager Karen get away from it all, well deserved it’s a legend , spoke to him again this afternoon.”


Radio and film legend Alan Partridge was also on tonight’s show as this week’s featured guest announcer. George Ezra also performed his latest single, Anywhere For You, on the End Of The Show Show.

Ant and Dec also took on a ‘possessed’ Roman Kemp on Saturday Night Takeaway tonight in a hilarious skit featuring poltergeists and a ‘Highway to Hull’.

Ant and Dec’s Saturday night takeaway starts at 7 p.m. on ITV on Saturday night
