Fair play to Dermot O'Leary. Not only has he mastered the art of a spinny kick, but he's also proven to be a dab hand at shoplifting. No, seriously.

Taking part in Ant and Dec's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Out Of Me Ear' segment on Saturday Night Takeaway, Dermot is let loose in this hilarious – and totally awkward – supermarket prank.

Watch a sneak peek at Dermot's thievery below. He makes stealing a pack of chicken thighs look so easy.

But Dermot doesn't just nick a few bananas out of people's baskets, the X Factor favourite also faces instructions to jump into someone's shopping trolley and, erm... use a cucumber as a makeshift microphone.

As you do.

The fun and games continue as Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway returns to our screens tomorrow (April 1), and as it's April Fool's Day, we're expecting to see plenty of japes.

This week's guest announcer is none other than Pointless presenter Alexander Armstrong, and viewers will finally get one step closer to uncovering the true identity of the mysterious MaskFace.

And although this year's run of Takeaway is as big a hit as ever, that still hasn't stopped Ant and Dec from daydreaming about who could make the show that tiny bit better.

Admitting that Adele would be their dream guest, the boys said: "[W]e've never quite made it work because of all her tours and albums and stuff, but we could have a lot of fun with her.

"If you all put the pressure on from your end and we put the pressure on from our end, maybe we can make it happen." Yes please.

Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway airs Saturdays (duh) on ITV.
