Ant and Dec return this Saturday night with the all-renewed Saturday Night Takeaway. After three years, my favourite Saturday night show is returning. I don’t know why I like it so much, probably because I need some good, light humour after a week of hard work, but I sure missed the show during its absence.
Ant and Dec bring their Saturday Night Takeway back on to ITV this weekend for the first time in three years and it sees the Geordie duo once again set to dominate Saturday evenings, we’ve decided to look at exactly why we love the pair so very much.
The simple answer is that they always come as a pair. One without the other just isn’t as good as having the two of them presenting with each other. The reason for this is their greatest strength lies in the ease and obvious comfort the pair has in each other’s company.
Far too often we see a pair of presenters thrust together that have no natural chemistry and have to really force the link between the two of them onscreen. While this may seem a viable process on paper, it just isn’t on camera. As we’ve seen over the last season of the America X Factor, when two presenters don’t have good on-screen chemistry, then it all just looks stilted and the repartee between the two looks false and written.
Well Ant and Dec are finally back with Saturday Night Takeaway! Did you miss it while it was gone? I know I did. What did you like — or not like — about previous seasons of Saturday Night Takeaway? I liked the guests they had on and thought the games and skits they went through were funny. How about you?
