Saturday Night Takeaway WILL be back with Dec hosting alone

Ant And Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway was nominated for the best entertainment programme, which it won previous year, while their show I'm A Celeb was up for the Entertainment Performance Award.

SUZUKI could pull support for its partner Ant McPartlin following the TV star's arrest for alleged drink-driving as it "reviews its options".

Ant has pulled out of all TV duties for the foreseeable future following his arrest and three auto collision in south west London at the weekend.

On Monday ITV revealed that this Saturday's episode of the hit show would not go ahead and said that the final two episodes of the series would not feature Ant, leading some to wonder whether the rest of the series would be shown at all.

In a statement, the Japanese carmaker said: 'ITV has taken a joint decision with Ant and Dec's team not to broadcast Saturday Night Takeaway this weekend.

'We made a promise to take hundreds of deserving winners to Florida to watch the series finale, and we will honour that.

The 42-year-old star was arrested on Sunday afternoon after his auto was involved in a collision with two other vehicles in south west London.

One witness has reported that Ant seemed angry following the crash and was "shouting at his mum who was also in the car".

He was later charged with drink-driving following his arrest on Sunday.

It's since been announced that the presenter will take a break from TV and return to rehab, having previously sought treatment for an addiction to prescription drugs and battles with substance and alcohol abuse.

"A child passenger from one of the cars received medical attention as a precaution".

ITV has confirmed that Dec will be back in the studio alone helping audience members win the ads in a week's time, and while he might not want Ant replaced with another co-host, will he have a guest host helping him along for some of the segments?

His odds to join the 42-year-old are slated at 2-1 while he is closely followed by fellow Saturday Night Takeaway star Scarlett Moffatt at 3-1.

"As such, Saturday Night Takeaway will not be going ahead this Saturday".
