Ant and Dec plus the lovely Scarlett Moffatt are all back on our television screens for Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway

Ant and Dec are FINALLY back for Saturday Night Takeaway and we couldn’t be happier and with Scarlett Moffatt joining the boys we know we're in for a lot of fun this series.

We only saw the Queen of the Jungle with Ant & Dec a few months ago under very different circumstances. Remember? They were in Australia for I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here and were surrounded by bugs, Bushtucker trials and creepy crawlies.

Well now the infamous presenters and the Gogglebox star will reunite but this time for Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. For the latest season they've promised live surprises, stunts, hidden camera antics and big name guests.

Throughout the past seasons we've seen a Saturday Night Takeaway wedding, Saturday Night Takeaway games, interviews and plenty of celebs join the duo.

During Saturday Night Takeaway 2016 we even saw X Factor judge and business mogul Simon feature in the infamous "Who Shot Simon Cowell" series. One of our favourite Saturday night shows is back and we can't wait so we've rounded up everything you need to know.

When does Saturday night takeaway start?

What channel is Saturday Night Takeaway on?

You can watch the programme on ITV. Saturday Night Takeaway catch up is available the following day - on Sunday - at 5:10pm on ITV2.

Are Ant and Dec still hosting?

We doubt Saturday Night Takeaway would be the same without the infamous duo so of course Ant and Dec are still hosting the show. We'd be pretty lost without them.

Luckily for this series the Queen of the Jungle Scarlett Moffatt will also be hosting a segment of the show. The Gogglebox star admitted she's looking forward to hosting Best Seat in the House: "I love making people laugh and I love talking to random people.

"I'm that person on the train or bus that will start speaking to you, so it will just be so much fun entertaining everyone in Best Seats."

Is Saturday Night Takeaway Live?

The TV programme IS live you probably wouldn't believe it with how smoothly the show runs. Even though the duo are used to presenting live shows such as I'm A Celeb, Scarlett who doesn't have much presenting experience has admitted she's nervous about doing the live show: "I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit nervous. But the excitement is overpowering the nerves.

"I just want to enjoy every minute of it. If I go wrong, hopefully me and the audience can all laugh along together."

Where is Saturday Night Takeaway filmed?

Everyone's favourite Saturday show is filmed live at The London Studios on the South Bank. The address to the studio is The London Studio, Upper Ground, London SE1.
