2024-04-15·8 秒


More than four million viewers watched the finale of ITV1's Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.

Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, who said they would be taking a break from the show last year, were joined by a host of stars for the two-hour show.

Hosting the series had been an "honour and a privilege", McPartlin said, while Donnelly said they "truly adored every second of making the show".

The episode averaged 4.6m viewers, up on the 2023 finale which averaged 4.3m.

But more people tuned into this series' launch episode than Saturday's finale, figures show.

A star-studded cast appeared in the finale including Holly Willoughby, Rylan Clark, Olly Murs, Davina McCall, Gino D'Acampo and Girls Aloud.

Crowds waiting outside the studio were also entertained by a Craig David DJ set.

In a joint statement on Instagram, McPartlin and Donnelly wrote: "Thank you, thank you, thank you.

"To all the guests, crew, and most importantly you at home who have made the last 20 series so incredible to be part of. We are so grateful to everyone who tuned in and we couldn't have done it without you."
