Is this the last series of Saturday Night Takeaway?

Ant & Dec announced last year that this would be the final series of Saturday Night Takeaway. In a statement they said: "We've also decided that our 20th series next year will be our last one for a little while. The show takes up such a lot of our year, we just feel we need a little bit of a breather and that the show is going to take a little bit of a rest."

This is not the first time the show has taken some time off air. It originally finished in 2009, before returning to our screens on ITV four years later in 2013, so there is still hope that the presenters could reprise their roles in a few years time.
