What did fans of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway 2021 say?

Stunned Ant and Dec fans immediately took to Twitter, questioning how a person could spend such a huge amount with the online greetings card retailer.

In fact, Moonpig even ended up trending.

One person tweeted: “£5000 to spend at MoonPig, that’s a lot of birthday cards! #saturdaynighttakeaway.”

How gutted would you be to win £5k and it all to be locked up in greeting cards.

Another wrote: “#SNT Five grand?!? To spend at Moonpig?!? ‘Yes, here’s a card for waking up this morning. Oh, here’s a card for putting on your shoes.'”

A third joked: “One of the prizes the lady won on Ant and Dec was £5000 in Moonpig credit. How gutted would you be to win £5k and it all to be locked up in greeting cards.”

A fourth even mused: “2089. Everybody you want to send a card to is dead. Moonpig Balance: £3912.97 #SNT #saturdaynighttakeaway.”

Another tweeted: “And the most pointless prize ever – £5000 of moon pig cards!!!!”

One said: “Who could spend £5k at @moonpig in a lifetime.”

What did viewers say?

However, others defended the prize as one wrote: “Everyone asking ‘how do you spend £5000 at Moonpig?’ has clearly never seen their prices.”

Another said: “Do people not realise you can buy gifts and flowers as well as cards at Moonpig?”

Win the Ads airs each week on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and gives viewers the chance to win all the items featured during a telly commercial break.

This weekend, prizes up for grabs were taken from last week’s Dancing On Ice.

Although she chose not to gamble for the lot, Naseem did also walk away with toothpaste, a year’s supply of Jaffa Cakes, a Disney + subscription and two holidays.

Naseem appeared delighted with her winnings.
