Saturday Night Takeaway is back very soon and when it starts it might look different from previous series.
Fans of the ITV programming, presented by Geordie duo Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly, have been eagerly awaiting the new series.
But when does screens matter?
When does Saturday Night Takeaway 2021 start?
ITV has confirmed that the new Saturday Night Takeaway series will be out in February.
An exact air date has not yet been set, but we believe it’s safe to make a guess on February 2nd as The Masked Singer will air its finale next week.

What will this year be different?
Aside from the usual social distancing measures we all currently live with, the series will have some new features.
In a chat with Digital spy, Ant and Dec announced that instead of an audience, the studio will have a “virtual wall” – and it will look much more like a real audience.

Dec said, “Our audience at night on the virtual wall will be an interactive part of the show. You won’t get instant feedback, but that’s what we’re working on on our virtual wall to try and try to reduce delays to an absolute minimum and make it much more of a two-way exchange with our audience. “
Hooray! I really needed that back to make the weekends better.
The duo also revealed that there would be a new sketch based on their other hit ITV series: I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!
New I’m a celebrity segment
The “I’m a Celebrity, Get Out of My Ear” sketch shows celebs wearing earphones and following the mischievous directions given by Ant and Dec.
Ant said, “There is a moment on Mon when he shows this manny or nanny around the house and then we said to him, ‘This is the bathroom that the kids might want to have a bathtub in while they bathe. ‘
“So he opens the door. But we put this 70 year old grandma there who is having a bubble bath. “
