Police also confirmed that a 42-year-old man was arrested, after failing a roadside breathalyzer test.

He was spotted arriving back home at his Chiswick in the early hours of Monday morning, following several hours of police questioning.

Earlier today, it was announced that Declan Donnelly will host two remaining episodes of Saturday Night Takeaway on his own.

Dec said: "Whilst I never thought I'd be in this position, after much discussion and careful consideration we've decided that the remaining two shows of this series of Saturday Night Takeaway will go ahead.

"We made a promise to take hundreds of deserving winners to Florida to watch the series finale, and we will honour that.

"Everyone at ITV and the Takeaway team feels we owe it to the audience to complete the series."
