Ant & Dec have unveiled the first look at the “final” series of Saturday Night Takeaway, saying there was “lots to pack in”.

The ITV show is due to return later this year for its 20th series, with the duo revealing that it would be the last for a while as the show goes on a hiatus.

Ahead of the launch, a 30-second teaser was released, with Ant beginning: “Series 20, can you believe it?” as Dec responded: “We’ve had some incredible Saturday nights.”

“Reckon you’ve got one last series in you,” asked Ant after a montage played, with Dec responding: “Try and stop me. There’s lots to pack in though.” Ant remarked that he “wouldn’t miss it for the world”, with Dec asking the audience: “Would you?”

The trailer included past clips from the show, but fans will have to wait for an exact return date as both the hosts and ITV remain tight-lipped on the premiere date.

The pair spoke about the decision to take a break from the show earlier this year, with Ant telling Digital Spy and other press: “We want it to be the biggest send-off because we're resting it for a while.

“So everybody that we haven't managed to get on in the last few years, we're gonna try our hardest to get on. It's going to be a massive celebration of the last 20 years as well, because it's been running for 20 years.

“We're gonna bring old things back, we've got brand-new stuff, we've got lots of things planned and we're gonna have a lot of fun doing it. We love it. It's gonna be sad, but we're gonna have fun until we get to the final episode.”

Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway will return to ITV1 later this year.
