Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway always manages to make us screech with laughter at the pranks and silly events they make the audience take part in every week.

There's always a heartwarming moment or two - particularly during the happiest minute of the week when tens of deserving people land a place on the plane to Florida - and tonight (March 17) was no exception as a woman had the best surprise from our favourite presenters.

Amanda's husband and son are both are both away working in the army and she hadn't seen either of them in months, but Ant and Dec had a little surprise for her.

They linked up with her husband who was in Afghanistan who had some really lovely news for her.

"I'm so sorry I can't be there, but I'll see you soon, because we've got a place on the plane!" he said.

She was obviously delighted with the thought of going to Universal Studios in Florida with the Saturday Night Takeaway gang and a plane full of other lucky winners - but that wasn't the only surprise they had, those mischievous Geordies.

Ant announced that her son Jordan had flown in from the Falklands to surprise her, and he ran in and gave her a big hug and her big gold boarding pass.

Naturally, viewers were sobbing at the happy news.
