Saturday Night Takeaway aired its final episode of the series tonight (Saturday, April 4).
But the Takeaway was forced to change its plans for the usual end of the series extravaganza because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Instead, as with last week, Ant and Dec hosted the show from their respective sofas.
And the programme was made up of highlight clips from previous series of the ITV show, including a roll-on-the-floor-funny I’m A Celebrity… Get In Me Ear with Dermot O’Leary.
A minority of viewers were left feeling disappointed that their favourite programme was just a look-back compilation.
One grumbled: “Highlights again! Surely they could have planned some fun things to do in their houses.”

However, most were just gutted about the show ending. Some begged ITV to keep it running through lockdown to keep the nation’s morale up.
“No I don’t want it to be last in the series,” said one fan.

Another viewer echoed the sentiment, saying: “What are we gonna do without @itvtakeaway? Can’t we just continue through lockdown?
“We need you guys more than ever.Thanks lads for brightening up the nation in these testing times.”

Others thanked Ant and Dec for raising their spirits.
One said: “Two talented boys who never fail to put a smile on my face and millions of others round the country. Thanks boys!”
