Ant and Dec confirm latest Saturday Night Takeaway guest announcer as viewers left blank UK News

Ant and Dec have confirmed the identity of this week’s Saturday Night Takeaway star guest announcer, as fans struggle to come to terms with the show ending for another year.

Takeaway’s new series has had it all. Over the past few months, the hit ITV program has given us a shock wedding, a Surprise family reunion in tears, Sam Fender and his band closing the show with Local Hero and even Ant and Dec in drag!

Social media was therefore filled with disappointment when Ant revealed last week that Takeaway was coming to the end of its run. And, while the fact that its ending was teased lightly with the news that Britain’s Got Talent is returning, with Ant and Dec confirming a start date of Easter Saturday, April 16; many viewers just don’t want Takeaway to end.

Details are rather sparse on exactly what will happen in Saturday’s finale. It’s not yet known who will follow in the footsteps of Sam, George Ezra and Michael Buble in being the final issue of End of the Show Show, but we now know who will be the final Star Guest Announcer.

On Thursday, a post shared by Ant and Dec via the Saturday Night Takeaway Twitter account revealed comedian Lee Mack would be doing the honors, after an eclectic mix of celebrities including RuPaul, Paloma Faith and the rather controversial Alan Partridge been in the voiceover booth this year. The tweet read: “We are proud to reveal that we have a funny man @LeeMack as our final featured guest announcer on the show!”

Reacting to the news, many fans were quick to share their disappointment with the show’s ending, with one replying, “Aww, I can’t believe this is the last show of series.” A second replied: “I’m disgusted to say that I’m going to miss the Saturday episode because I’m on the night shift in A&E so I’m going to have to reschedule my Saturday night takeout to a Sunday night instead! I love this program thank you for bringing so much joy.”
