Saturday Night Takeaway's Stephen Mulhern terrified he 'could die' in nerve-shredding stunt with Ant and Dec tonight

STEPHEN Mulhern has issued a terrified warning that he 'could die' in nerve-shredding stunt with Ant and Dec on tonight's Saturday Night Takeaway.

The star posted a rather emotional video to his Twitter page as he prepared to host a segment on the popular ITV show.

Stephen captioned the Saturday afternoon post: "Wowza! ⁦@itvtakeaway⁩ this could get messy, in fact horrific!!!

"It’s even worse than #Unbelievable are ⁦@antanddec trying to kill me?!?!"

Holding the camera up close, in the video Stephen, 43, greeted his followers and explained: "So Saturday Night Takeaway is going really well and this week is the return of Ant versus Dec.

"But are you ready for this? Today they're sending me on training, yeah, I've got to train to do something to host that segment of the show.

"Now, this training I don't particularly want to do because it's DANGEROUS and I could DIE!"

He added: "I will let you know how I get on later. Watch this space. Unbelievable."

Responding to his video Stephen's fans rallied round to wish him good luck, while one rationalised and said: "They'd have no one to tease if they killed you off, so I think it's highly unlikely #besafe".

A follower commented: "Can’t wait to see this tonight hope training is going well. Xxx"

While a third pleaded: "good luck stephen, please try not to die".

Previous Ant Versus Dec slots on the programme have seen the presenting duo attempt everything fencing to axe throwing and a high-speed race through the studios on electric bikes.

Stephen, who himself hosts a range of shows including Catchphrase and In for a Penny, is well known for his appearances on Ant and Dec's Saturday show.

Just a few weeks ago Saturday Night Takeaway fans were left speechless when Stephen appeared on screen in "bulging" gold shorts.

The star donned the tight gold bottoms as he appeared on screen covered head-to-toe in gold paint.

Fans were left stunned and took to social media to share their outrage at the TV presenters "bulge" as he left "nothing to the imagination" on the first episode of the new series.

Stephen jumped around on stage in the tight-fitting outfit as he introduced his foot-golf competition that saw Ant and Dec battle it out live.

Introducing the magician as "golden balls", the iconic TV duo were in stitches as they joked Stephen had "overdone it on the fake tan."

Lifting up his shirt to reveal painted-on abs, fans were well and truly distracted and had their eyes fixed on "those shorts".

"Is anyone else witnessing Stephen Mulhern bulging out of his gold shorts?" one fan asked Twitter before adding: "Very revealing."

A second responded: "Those shorts are leaving nothing to the imagination. I'm seeing Stephen Mulhern in a whole different light."
