Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway fans predict ‘sad acts’ will complain to Ofcom over ‘brilliant’ drag performance

The best End of the Show Show yet, some fans said

Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway fans have predicted a certain number of “sad acts” will complain to Ofcom over the hosts’ brilliant drag performance last night.

Saturday Night Takeaway was back with a bang for a new series last night (February 19).

And it was widely agreed on social media that the End of the Show Show was the boys’ best yet.

However, some fans of the show have predicted complaints to the broadcasting regular Ofcom after Ant and Dec‘s performance.

What did Saturday Night Takeaway fans say about Ant and Dec?

The End of the Show Show saw the boys dress up in full drag to perform with the winners of RuPaul’s Drag Race with Ru himself acting as the night’s guest announcer.

Twitter loved it, but there were some haters.

One grinch posted a picture of Ant and Dec in drag and declared: “How far these two have fallen.”

Another said: “Saturday Night Takeaway first show completely ruined by having a load of sick so-called MEN playing at being WOMEN, absolutely disgusting, on a family show.

“What the [bleep] is wrong with these people.”

It was then that predictions of complaints to Ofcom started.

One said: “You just know some whingy sad act is writing to Ofcom about this. I LOVED IT.”

And they weren’t wrong!

Can’t see The End of the Show Show going down very well for some viewers, I’m guessing a few complaints will be made by the viewers to Ofcom. Not a very good start for Ant and Dec in my opinion,” said one.

Another tweeted Ofcom to check if it was ready for the predicted onslaught of complaints.

“And I thought #Diversity’s BLM dance was going to be the biggest trigger of all time on ITV 😂 @Ofcom you ready?” asked one.

Another agreed that the “Ofcom warriors are going to implode at that”.
