Ant and Dec will be back with a brand new series in February.

Just like Strictly, X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway is staple weekend watching.

So it’s no surprise fans have gone wild after the brand new trailer was released today.

In a post shared on Ant and Dec’s joint Instagram account, the pair can be seen discussing whether this season will be the best yet.

Ant, 44, asks his best pal: “Do you really think we can make the new series of Saturday Night Takeaway the best ever?”

After Dec, 44, replies: “Yes, course we can,” the boys swiftly break into song.

Before adding: “On your telly this Feb @itvtakeaway @itv.”

One excited fan commented: “Literally buzzing for this to be bk missed it so much.”

“This is so cute!!! I am so excited!!!”, said another, while a third added: “Omg I can’t wait for this!! My favourite! ❤️”

This comes after ITV postponed Saturday Night Takeaway last year, after Ant stepped down from his TV work in March 2018 following his arrest on suspicion of drink driving following a car crash.

In an original statement, the Geordie pair said they did not want to compromise the quality of the show so thought it was better to rest it until 2020.

"My recovery is going very well and for that to continue having spoken to Dec and ITV, I have made the decision to take the rest of the year off," Ant said.

"I’d like to thank both Dec and ITV for their continued support and I look forward to getting back to work in the new year."
