Good Morning Britain's Andi Peters interrupted the entertainment segment during the show that aired on Friday, April 12. The 53-year-old was told by presenter Adil Ray it "wasn't in the script" as he sat down to share an unexpected update ahead of the final episode of Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.

Presenters Ant and Dec announced the 2024 series of Saturday Night Takeaway would be their "last one for a little while," and the duo's final episode of SNT, at least for some time, will air on Saturday, April 13 on ITV1 and ITVX. The two-hour-long show, which has been extended from its traditional 90 minutes, is set to wave the boys goodbye with a bang, with Andi revealing Ant and Dec are already feeling emotional about bowing out.

So much so that the presenter interrupted the entertainment segment on GMB to share his thoughts. As Adil and Kate Garraway were listening to the latest SNT update, Andi walked into the studio and said: "Are you talking about Takeaway? I better talk about this because I'm on that show."

"Woah, woah, woah this is not in the script," Adil then said, to which Andi responded: "No it doesn't have to be in the script because I need to tell you..."

He then shared: "I was with the boys yesterday and nerves are beginning to set in, this year is a 20-year heritage. I think now they are getting a little bit emotional about what's going to happen come 9pm tomorrow, because it's a two-hour extended show, they have taken over the whole of the television centre, local shops had to shut."

"I couldn't get in on Monday because of all the trailers to build it," Kate then pointed out as Andi continued: "That's how big this is going to be and remember it's one of ITV's biggest shows, longest running formats and tomorrow's show is... I can't tell you and I know a bit about what's going to be in the show."

He added: "It is a must-see television event. You heard it hear first." The live finale of Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway is set to be a two-hour extravaganza across the whole of the television centre. Iconic pop group Girls Aloud are the Star Guest Announcers, while Get Out Of Me Ear: The Revenge will see celebrities who have fallen victim to the prank over the years get their own back.

Celebrities joining Ant & Dec live in the studio are Simon Cowell, Davina McCall, Rylan, Oti Mabuse, Amanda Holden, Dermot O'Leary, Craig David and Alison Hammond. There will also be a super sized Singalong with S-Club, Tony Hadley and Kaiser Chiefs, while show favourite, Ring my Bell will return for a final outing.

In a 20-series look-back moment, ITV are ending Ant vs Dec the same way they started with a football penalty shoot out - this was the very first Ant vs Dec final game way back in series 5. Stephen Mulhern is also bringing back Kirsty Gallacher and Ashley Roberts to help him so all Ant v Dec hosts across the years will be together for the first time.

Ben Foster and Clive Tyldesley will also feature, while Andi Peters will present his final SNT competition and Jordan North, Josie Gibson and Scarlett Moffatt will be bringing joy for unsuspecting members of the public. ITV added: "There's a special montage of SNT’s best bits from the past 20 series, Win the Ads will have the biggest prize pot in the show's history, more live surprises and an amazing End of the Show Show!"
