Earlier this month, a special episode of Saturday Night Takeaway aired called Saturday Knight Takeaway but it left viewers divided.

During the show, Ant and Dec were asked to unmask a criminal mastermind who had been kidnapping members of the aristocracy.

Meanwhile, the likes of Joanna Lumley, Emilia Fox, Michael Sheen, Katie Price, David Walliams and Noel Edmonds all made appearances.

Some viewers weren’t impressed with the ‘mystery’ episode.

One viewer wrote: “This might be the worst thing I’ve ever watched.”
