Fans of Saturday Night Takeaway were left devastated this evening after finding out the show has been cancelled.
Instead, The Voice has been moved up to its 7pm slot and Through The Keyhole to 9pm. Following this, ITV are airing Fast And The Furious's fifth instalment in the franchise to fill the gap - which many viewers have deemed 'inappropriate' in light of the circumstances .
Last week, the show's reps confirmed that this evening's episode of SNT was cancelled after Ant McPartlin was arrested for drink driving. He has since been charged .
The shamed TV presenter was given a court summons on Wednesday afternoon - three days after his car crashed into two vehicles in south west London.
Declan Donnelly has confirmed that he will be presenting the final two episodes by himself for the first time in their 30-year joint career.
However some fans had been under the impression that SNT was still airing tonight and were left bitterly disappointed by the reality.
One tweeted: 'Absolutely gutted that @itvtakeaway ain't on tonight!!! #SaturdayNightTakeaway @antanddec.'
While another commented: '#antanddec A lot of people under the impression that #SaturdayNightTakeaway is still on tonight. IT’S NOT ON Tonight guys. Will be back next Saturday ?? #ITVTakeaway.'
A third remarked: 'Going to miss #SaturdayNightTakeaway tonight. We all make mistakes when #life isn't going right. #AntMcPartlin is only #human. Hope things turn around for him very soon.'
One fan was fuming that The Voice was on at the same time: 'Oh gosh I can’t stand the voice and is on tonight for 2 bloody hours :( @Team_AntandDec #SaturdayNightTakeaway bring back Dec...'
