Ant & Dec have confirmed that Saturday Night Takeaway is making a triumphant return to TV next month.

After two years away, the duo unveiled the first look trailer of the new series, teasing plenty of laughter and their “best ever” series.

Watch the trailer in full above.

The trailer sees Ant and Dec sitting in a boardroom discussing what they should do on the next series. This morphs into a sing-song, including references to all the old favourite segments.

Takeaway was taken off their air for one week in March 2018, after Ant was involved in a car accident. This forced Dec to complete the rest of the series on his own for the first time.

It didn't return for 2019 while Ant focused on his sobriety. The duo returned for Britain's Got Talent and I'm a Celebrity later in the year.

Saturday Night Takeaway returns for a new series in February. ITV will confirm the exact date in the coming days.
