Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’s new series is back and if you’d like to take part then look no further.

ITV confirmed recently that the TV presenters would be taking a break after the 2024 series.

The duo said reaching the “milestone” of 20 series seemed like the “perfect time to pause for a little while and catch our breath”.

It’s not the first time the show has taken a pause though as it happened in 2009 before it returned again in 2013.

The pair said they were taking “a breather” from the show, which “takes up such a lot of our year”.

“We love making Saturday Night Takeaway, but reaching the milestone of 20 series seemed like the perfect time to pause for a little while and catch our breath,” McPartlin said.

Donnelly said: “We still have a momentous 20th series to look forward to first so we will do our best to go out (for now) with a bang in 2024.”

The pair also promised “some very special look-backs” and “exciting new items” for the 20th series.

If you’re interested in being on the final series before the break, here’s how you can apply.

If they can answer correctly, they get to blindly choose a number that has a prize behind it.

They must then decide whether to try to answer the final question – if they guess it right, they win everything even if they didn’t win it previously but if they answer it incorrectly, they don’t take any prizes home.

The deadline for applying for Win the Ads is also Friday, April 12 and applicants must be aged 18 or above.
