Ant McPartlin 'edited out' of tonight's Saturday Night Takeaway finale trailer

Following his arrest for drink-driving earlier this month, Ant McPartlin's spokesperson confirmed that he would be stepping down from all his presenting commitments "for the foreseeable future".

Declan Donnelly has been backed by fellow broadcasters after his first ever solo presenting role on Saturday Night Takeaway.

Saturday Night Takeaway was cancelled the week after Ant's auto accident, but the show returned for Easter weekend.

But Dec was not alone as he had the help of Stephen Mulhern and Scarlett Moffatt as well as surprise host Davina McCall.

He wrote: "Back in studio today preparing your #SaturdayNightTakeaway for tomorrow night".

We never thought it would happen, but Dec has hosted a TV show without Ant.

The 42-year-old is due to appear in court on Wednesday over a road traffic collision in Mortlake, southwest London, on 18 March.

"Takeaway is all about having fun and they fear a sombre start may seriously effect the quality of the output".

A Saturday Night Takeaway source told the paper: "Dec is very much the solo host tonight - it's not going to be him and a sidekick".

As the clip ended, Stephen Merchant spoke to Dec and made a quip about Ant, saying: 'That other guy is good.

After Joanna wrongly accused Dec of being the mole, it was later revealed Emilia Fox was actually the culprit - who later locked them up in jail.

Donnelly said in a statement that part of the motivation to air the last two episodes was to "honour" a promise made to take "hundreds of deserving winners to Florida" for the series finale. "Everyone at ITV and the "Takeaway" team feels we owe it to the audience to complete the series".
