Ant and Dec poke fun at each other as they recreate iconic old promo shot for Saturday Night Takeaway

ANT and Dec had a right giggle as they recreated one of their early Saturday Night Takeaway promo shoots with hilarious results.

The presenting powerhouses are counting down to the hit entertainment show's return at the weekend, and the funny video has certainly whet fans' appetites.

The lads put on their best exotic shirts as they larked about during filming.

Dec shook his maracas with a big smile on his face, which drove Ant "crackers".

He said: "See what I mean? It's constant, man. Imagine going on holidays with him. 

"This is what he's like. Morning, noon, and night. Maracas, maracas, maracas. It drives us crackers!"

The Geordie star might have been going round the twist, but that didn't stop him adding to his best pal's look.

"You're missing the sombrero," he added.

For all the fun he was having, Dec admitted he actually hated the original shoot from 2002.

He said: "In the promo shot we did in 2002, I had maracas and a sombrero but it is my least favourite promo shot of Saturday Night Takeaway."

Beside the video on their official Instagram account, they wrote: "Oi, mind me maracas! Bit of silly filming for the new @itvtakeaway , back on your tellies this Saturday on @itv and @wearestv1 . Less than one week to go!"

One fan commented: "Can’t wait for it and I don’t wait too see you both back on I’m a celebrity get me out of here next November too."

While another posted: "I cant wait for Takeaway so excited."

The smash-hit show, returning for its 17th series, will air at 7pm on Saturday.

Last year’s show was one of the first television productions to be affected by the coronavirus pandemic, with the final three shows ditching audiences.

The Geordie duo, both 45, will star in usual segments Undercover and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Me Ear alongside big name celebrities.

The first episode will feature I’m A Celeb winner Harry Redknapp, 73, and son Jamie, 47. 

Others taking part in the seven-part series will include Masked Singer star Davina McCall, 53, and Olympic hero Sir Mo Farah, 37.

Ant and Dec have another fantastic giveaway planned for viewers which will be revealed in the first show of the new series.

The Honoured trilogy series has now finished and we have a brand-new mini-series called Double Trouble in which the hosts have been cloned and the clones have gone rogue. 

The new adventure will feature many celebrities including Bear Grylls, 46, Prue Leith, 80, Rob Brydon, Alison Hammond, also 46, and Jermaine Jenas, 37.

Fleur East, 33, is back with a brand-new segment and Stephen Mulhern, 43, returns to put the boys through his usual brand of high-octane, surprise Ant vs Dec challenges.

The best pal duo will also revive their Panda alter-egos Bam and Boo after appearing in London Zoo last series. This time they will be in legendary toy store Hamleys.
