It was revealed earlier this month that Ant's TV partner Declan Donnelly will present the final two episodes of Saturday Night Takeaway - including tonight's finale at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida.

All the audition shows for this year's series, which include acts from Manchester, London and Belfast, will feature Ant however.

It all happened after solo host Dec Donnelly led a sketch where he received a phone call from the head of ITV and revealed that Mulhern would be getting his own show.

An audience member interrupted with, "We miss Ant" to which the TV star replied: 'Yes, we do, we do.

Ant, 42, was detained after being involved in a crash with two other cars while driving his Mini in Richmond, South West London, on March 18, one of which was carrying a four-year-old girl.

If you thought Saturday Night Takeaway's finale went off without a hitch, then you're sadly mistaken.

But viewers won't have to put up with it any longer as last night's episode marked the end of the series - we'd like to think that when the cheery presenter's show hits TV screens in its own right, the American accent will be long gone.

After going off air, he thanked the audience for their support during the series, adding that it had been "fun" but "tinged with sadness". "Give a round of applause to Ant who's back home".

Donnelly added: "He'll appreciate that".

Ant did feature in a pre-recorded skit entitled Saturday Knight Takeaway alongside Emilia Fox and Joanna Lumley and also had his name in the credits.

During the series finale he joked he had "twice the amount of work to do", and at one point said: 'I'll have to do it myself, like everything else this week'. "Thanks for your support. D x".

Hollywood actress Denise Richards, British musician Craig David and United States singer Jason Derulo will join the trio Stateside, ITV has confirmed.
