Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway (often referred to simply as Saturday Night Takeaway) is a British television variety show presented and executively produced by Ant & Dec.The show was first broadcast on 8 June 2002 on ITV. It is broadcast live from The London Studios on the South Bank. The format was heavily influenced by previous Saturday night light entertainment shows, most notably Noel's House Party and Don't Forget Your Toothbrush, while individual items often pay homage to Saturday night TV of the past, such as Opportunity Knocks.

From its launch in 2002, the show was unbeaten for four series in its timeslot until scheduled against Doctor Who on BBC One in March 2005. The show entered hiatus in 2010 after its ninth series to allow Ant & Dec to launch family game shows Ant & Dec's Push the Button and Red or Black?. However, in November 2011, it was announced that Saturday Night Takeaway would return in early 2013.[1] After winning the Award for Best Presenters at the 18th National Television Awards on 23 January 2013, Ant & Dec announced that the show would return on 23 February 2013.[2][3] An official Saturday Night Takeaway iOS app for iPod, iPhone and iPad was released on 15 February 2013. After the fifth episode of series 10, ITV announced that the show would return for an eleventh series in 2014, owing to the popularity of the tenth run.[4]

On 31 October 2013, it was announced that an arena tour version of the show would take place in summer 2014. Takeaway On Tour Live will visit 12 UK arenas between 6 August 2014 and 10 September 2014.[5]

On 10 September 2005, ITV had a programme listing the best 50 shows in ITV's 50 years being on air. Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway came second, beaten only by Coronation Street.

The show won the BAFTA for Entertainment Programme and Ant & Dec won Entertainment Performance for their role in the show in 2014.

Opening titles[edit]

Pre-titles clip[edit]

Initial Saturday Night Takeaway logo, used from 8 June 2002 until 21 March 2009.

Before the titles a comedy clip is shown, which always climaxes with either Ant or Dec – sometimes both of them – exclaiming "Roll the titles!"

  • Series 1-2,9-11: Backstage (Series 1,2,10 and 11 is a funny story before opened item, the series 9 is a detail before opening ceremonies.)
  • Series 3 & 4: Dressing room (series 3, show 1 was set in the pub and series 4, show 1 was a dream sequence)
  • Series 5 & 6: Outside dressing rooms
  • Series 7 & 8: "London Studios Canteen" (series 8, show 1 was set in the control room and series 8, show 6 also included a pub)

The titles[edit]

From series 1-4, Dec knocked on Ant's door to tell him it's time for the show to start. They then running through vast amounts of multi-coloured brick walls and they get exhausted, before one more run, jumping into the title screen.

From series 5-9, titles began with Ant & Dec running down a street at dusk and leaping onto the side of a house. They then leap onto the side of another house and run past its window, though Ant temporarily stops to admire an attractive woman in a towel and wearing a face mask. Dec pulls him forward and they jump off the edge again, this time over a motorway and at first appearing to land face down on the ground, but they are actually on the side of the building opposite where they just jumped off. It is dark by this time and they start running up the second building as it were a horizontal platform, before emerging at the top. Ant somersaults onto the top of a final building and Dec spins round onto it. After landing, they look at each other as if to say "never again!". They enter through a "STUDIO" door with the words "ON AIR" on both sides of it. STUDIO and the two ON AIRs light up as Ant & Dec enter through the door and then the camera zooms out to reveal that the studio door is on the "&" of a giant "ANT & DEC's SATURDAY NIGHT TAKEAWAY".

From series 10 onwards, the titles begin with Ant & Dec coming out of a Barber's shop in the middle of the day. Ant pulls a napkin off of Dec's collar and they walk a few steps past a few people, including a milkman and a girl in a yellow jacket. They smile at each other and then a series of motorbikes go past, but drivers stop there to let Ant & Dec on the passenger seat of one bike each, in order to ride them to the Saturday Night Takeaway studio. They ride past a large billboard with the guest announcer of that week in it, who waves to them and they wave back. After the motorbikes pass over the Tower Bridge, Ant & Dec get off and wave goodbye to the riders. They run half-way down a set of stairs which are lit up, and meet six attractive female dancers – three on the left next to Ant and three on the right next to Dec. Dec has a quick dance but Ant just stares at them and laughs. He pulls Dec away and they run down the rest of the stairs. The scene then cuts to them arriving at the new studio with the new ITV logo on the front door. They run inside and the camera shoots up to the roof area, where the show's new logo appears.

Starting games[edit]

At the start of the show, Ant and Dec always perform a short comedy sketch, usually based on something that has happened in the news recently. E.g.; when a celebrity complained after a reporter tried to photograph them on their holidays, Ant pretended to get angry with the camera crew and demanded that they stop filming. The cameras were briefly switched off while Dec tried to calm Ant down and when they came back on, Ant and Dec had switched jackets. After the sketch, they announce what's coming up on the show and then Ant goes up into the audience and starts talking to some of them. He usually picks on two or three people and says something embarrassing about them and then picks on a third or fourth person and announces that they will be playing a game live in the studio. A lot of research goes into these games and they involve the person's family and friends.

Games include:

  • Mr and Mesmerised
  • Wedding Daze
  • Court in the Act
  • Where's Your Shed At?
  • STOP! That's Mine
  • Stars in their Lives
  • Shame That Tune
  • This Is Your Diary
  • Prankety Prank
  • How the Other Half Lives
  • Trouble & Strife
  • Imitation Street
  • I'm a Believer
  • The "person's name" show
  • Ant & Dec Book club
  • Dude, where's my car?
  • Fame for a Laugh
  • Fame doesn't change him
  • Pa Humbug
  • Right Up Your Tweets
  • Frownton Abbey
  • There's No Place Like Your Home
  • The News
  • Law & Disorder
  • Gran Theft Auto
  • Ogglebox
