Fans of Saturday Night Takeaway have been given a tantalising glimpse of what’s in store on tonight’s live series finale after Declan Donnelly posted a selfie on the show’s set in Florida this afternoon.

Dec, who hosts this evening’s ITV extravaganza from Universal Orlando Resort, posted the picture along with the message: “#SaturdayNightTakeaway show day!” followed by a smile and a kiss.

It shows the enormous set built specially for the programme, which he is hosting without Anthony McPartlin for the second week running following Ant’s drink-drive charge and sabbatical from TV work.

Tonight’s episode, which will be co-hosted by Scarlett Moffatt and Stephen Mulhern, features Hollywood star and Bond girl Denise Richards as special guest announcer.
