Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway rolled out its series finale on ITV tonight (April 3).

As ever, the lads were joined by the unstoppable force that is Stephen Mulhern for a segment titled 'Ant vs Dec', where the two presenters faced off against each other in various bowls-based challenges.

Mulhern (dressed as a human trophy) was the 'prize' they were competing for, which made for some comedy gold – if you'll excuse the pun.

Standing victorious at the end of the segment, Ant was asked where he'd be putting Mulhern, the trophy.

"In the back passage!" the TV star cheekily responded, which as you'd probably guess caused quite a reaction on social media, with many viewers understandably in stitches.

Mulhern has proved incredibly popular during this year's Takeaway, and fans of the longtime TV host will be pleased to hear he's back with a second solo series of In for a Penny later this month.

When the first one aired back in 2019, the 43-year-old was even dubbed "TV's funniest presenter" by viewers tuning in.

Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway airs on ITV.
