Dec said: "We were actually just passing, we were on our way to film something for tomorrow night’s show.

"But we just wanted to remind you and everybody because we had a week off last week because of the rugby, so we just wanted to remind you all that we are back tomorrow night at 7pm."

Ant added: "We normally see you in the tea bar don’t we after you finish the show, but we thought we would interrupt your show!"
