And she won’t be alone in breathing new life into the show. The Voice UK coach Jennifer Hudson will be part of the ‘End of the Show Show’ section, while former Gogglebox star and Queen of the Jungle Scarlett Moffatt will become Ant and Dec’s sidekick.

You can also expect to see Ant and Dec in a sketch about stealing the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London, which Joanna Lumley and Amelia Fox will take part in. 

There’ll be a roll call of other famous faces in the sketch, too, including Dame Shirley Bassey, Carol Vorderman, Katherine Jenkins, Alan Shearer, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Martin Sheen.

The party starts at 7pm this Saturday, so tune in and see how Michelle gets on. We’re sure she’ll be a jewel in their crown.

When is Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway on TV?

The show returns to our screens on Saturday 25th February at 7:00pm on ITV. 

Will there be another mini-mystery series?

YES! Because of the success of 'Who Shot Simon Cowell?', the guys behind SNT have come up with a new mystery: 'The Missing Crown Jewels'. A masked criminal has stolen the goods and Ant and Dec are joined by Silent Witness actress Emilia Fox to help investigate. 

The celebrities who are under suspicion of the theft have been revealed so far to be Joanna Lumley, Dame Shirley Bassey and Michael Sheen. 

What's Scarlett Moffatt's role on the show?

Scarlett will be heading up the Best Seats In The House competition, which sees viewers winning VIP seats for SNT by finding secret sofas in mystery locations up and down the UK. 

According to official documentation, Scarlett will be kicking off her debut appearance with a bang. It says: "She’ll make her spectacular debut by surprising members of the public in an electrifying live stunt that could see her reach new heights - quite literally."


What else is new?

TV double act Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will appear regularly on SNT on a new item called Make 'Em Laugh. It will be a Holly and Phil v Ant and Dec kind of situation. 

Heart's Stephen Mulhern is back hosting Ant vs Dec as wells as a new gig playing a new game called In For A Penny, which will see Stephen persuading members of the public to part with their cash for a chance to win big.
