Ant and Dec have announced they are leaving Saturday Night Takeaway after 21 years to have a ‘breather’.

The I’m A Celebrity presenters have helmed the ITV variety show since June 2002, which has spawned beloved segments including Singalong Live and Read My Lips.

On a video posted on Instagram, Dec, 47, explained they had decided the 20th series, due to air next year, will be their ‘last one for a little while.’

‘The show takes up such a lot of our year we just feel we need a little bit of a breather and that the show is going to take a little bit of a rest,’ he continued.

In a statement, Ant, 46, added: ‘We love making Saturday Night Takeaway, but reaching the milestone of 20 series seemed like the perfect time to pause for a little while and catch our breath.’

Fans rushed to comment on the news on social media, with one lamenting: ‘Gutted, I look forward to this on a Saturday night 😩.’

A fellow Saturday Night Takeaway lover simply commented: ‘Oh no I love SNT,’ while another remarked: ‘Noooooo this show is my sat night! Don’t rest it too long.’

A fourth commented: ‘Lads you never stop!! You deserve a break, you guys are always on so no doubt you will be on another show anyways 😊 have some much needed time! 💜.’

The series previously took a pause in 2009, returning four years later in 2013.
