Divisive ‘mystery’ episode of Saturday Night Takeaway

It follows a somewhat divisive mystery episode of the programme that aired earlier this month.

On January 2, ITV showed a special edition of Saturday Night Takeaway that strayed a fair bit from the usual format.

The programme was more like a scripted comedy, with hosts Ant and Dec working to unmask a criminal mastermind.

Someone was kidnapping members of the aristocracy and as a result, they had to get on the case.

A number of big celebrities joined them during the episode, including actors Joanna Lumley, Emilia Fox and Michael Sheen.

Additionally, former glamour model Katie Price was part of the show, as was BGT judge David Walliams and veteran presenter Noel Edmonds.

Others, however, really enjoyed the mystery episode and found it hilarious.
