Ant and Dec have delighted their fans by sharing a sneak peek of the next series of Saturday Night Takeaway.

The Geordie presenting duo, both 45, took to their shared Instagram account on Tuesday evening to post a behind-the-scenes picture as filming kicked off for the ITV entertainment show.

They revealed that they had started shooting some promotional footage for Saturday Night Takeaway and shared the snap to get fans excited for when it returns sometime this year.

In the snap, Dec held up a clapperboard from the set which Ant rested his face on as they both beamed excitedly for the cameras.

"Dapper clappers at your Saturday Night service," they captioned the photo.

They captioned the post: "What the hell's going on here? We're back at work thats what!

"Bit of covid-compliant @itvtakeaway filming… Who's excited for the new series?"

Ant and Dec hosted the last episodes of last year's Saturday Night Takeaway from home

For the last nine years, the show has begun in February, so fans might not have very long to wait for the new series.

Saturday Night Takeaway was one of the first shows to be affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

There were fears it would be taken off air as the country went into lockdown, but the show carried on for a short time, just without a studio audience.

But the show was then taken off air early and replaced by two compilation episodes of its best bits.
