ITV Replace Saturday Night Takeaway With The Voice UK

20 Mar 2018

ITV has revealed that The Voice UK is to replace Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway after it was announced yesterday that it will not be on our screens this weekend.

It comes on the back of the news that Ant McPartlin has stepped down from his TV commitments for the 'foreseeable future' and his checking back into rehab following his arrest on the suspicion of drink driving.

The TV host was involved in a three-car crash over the weekend.

ITV announced that The Voice UK will move down to 7pm from its original time of 8.30pm on March 24th.

The rest of the night will be filled with reruns of other ITV shows and their usual 10 o'clock news.

In relation to the remaining Saturday Night Takeaway shows left in the series, the network said:

"We will be reviewing options for the last two episodes of the series, which would not feature Ant, who is taking time off to seek treatment.

"We very much hope that he gets the help that he needs."
