BRITAIN's favourite Geordie will return this Saturday for a brand new series of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, the new series is set to feature “big showbiz guests, high-octane challenges and hilarious hidden-camera set ups.”

Who is in the celebrity line-up of Saturday Night Takeaway 2021?

Here are the celebrities you can expect to see in the first episode of the series.

Other celebrities taking part later in the seven-part season will include Masked Singer star Davina McCall, 53, and Olympic hero Sir Mo Farah, 37.

Gary Barlow

Take That star Gary Barlow will be Saturday Night Takeaway's first guest performer of the series.

Gary's hits include A Million Love Songs, Forever Love and Rule The World.

And Gary released a solo album in November 2020, so we can expect to hear a newer song.

Olly Alexander

It's A Sin star Olly Alexander will be the Saturday Night Takeaway guest announcer.

The Years & Years frontman, 30, has recently shot to stardom in the Channel 4 drama about the AIDS crisis

But the talented singer was propelled to stardom with the band's 2015 hit King that reached Number One in the charts.

Harry and Jamie Redknapp 

Former West Ham and Tottenham manager Harry and his son Jamie Redknapp will participate in the series’ first Get Out of Me Ear challenge.

The game involves the presenting duo speaking into a celebrity's concealed earpiece to give them various tasks to do in front of members of the public.

The father-son ex-footballers headed undercover for a meeting with a transport manager for their recycling firm – but Ant and Dec try to get the duo to speak exclusively in football puns.

When is Saturday Night Takeaway on TV?

The first episode of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway will be back this Saturday (February 20).

It will kick off at 7pm on ITV.

The channel teased: “Every show will sign off in spectacular style when some of the country’s biggest and best performers take to the Takeaway stage for a one-off performance in the End of the Show Show, as the only series on TV that lets its’ audience ‘Win The Ads’ continues to be the happiest ninety minutes of the week.
