The series follows on from their Crown Jewels episodes on the programme last year.

Wooton went on to explain: “In the first show Ant & Dec are on a rescue mission to find their Britain’s Got Talent colleague David Walliams, who is being held hostage in a grim looking building.”

As Ant & Dec try to uncover ‘the big baddie’ in the new short sketch called, ‘The Honoured’ around 30 celebs make appearances, including Holly Willoughby, Olly Murs and Katie Price.

A TV source said: “The boys’ whodunnit sketches are a really closely guarded secret.

“But they always manage to milk their contact books and get the cream of the crop of the industry to appear in them.”

The show returns next month, bring it on!
