Anna started off the show slipping into her character of Patricia Carmichael from Line of Duty, which had fans in stitches.

And as well as announcing everything that was coming up, she took part in Read My Lips to help members of the public at home win prizes.

She had everyone laughing when she struggled to get on the chair that was shaped like a massive pair of lips.

Then the audience was once again giggling as she declared she was “dead nervous” because she has a “squint and won’t be able to see what they’re saying”.

Ant and Dec quipped they hadn’t really thought it through. However, Anna managed to win two callers a holiday, and the third £500 despite technical issues hitting the segment. She certainly didn’t do too badly!

Viewers at home absolutely loved having her on the show.

One said she had “unanimously united Twitter”, another called her “a breath of fresh air” and a third called for her to have her own entertainment show.

Saturday Night Takeaway fans thrilled by Stephen Mulhern’s return

Elsewhere on Saturday Night Takeaway, Stephen Mulhern made a triumphant return to the audience chanting his name.

He has been off unwell since the first show and resting “on doctor’s orders”.

But last night he was back in full swing, dressed as the Dark Lord for Ant versus Dec and playing the cymbals in the End of the Show Show.

Fans were excited to see him back.

Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway airs on ITV, Saturday nights, at 7pm.
