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.
Pop star Craig David has been booked as resident DJ, while Jason Derulo has the prime slot headlining the End of the Show Show.
The Rembrandts, who had a smash hit with TV sitcom Friends’ theme song I’ll Be There For You, will perform during the Singalong Live.
Fans instantly took to Twitter to share their excitement and post good-luck messages following Dec’s selfie, one week after they flooded him with overwhelming support for going solo presenting Saturday Night Takeaway without Ant for the first time.
