Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly wowed fans of Saturday Night Takeaway on Saturday night, with an “incredible” makeover.
The presenters took part in a special RuPaul’s Drag Race ‘end of the show’, under the name RuPaul introduced three winners of the show to a performance.
In a twist, Ant and Dec transformed into scissors to join the performance, and viewers said the moment “blows their minds”.
They became the Ladies of the North, with Ant as Lady Antoinette and Dec as Miss Donna Lee.
Singing about being ‘angels of the North’, they joined Drag Race UK stars The Vivienne, Lawrence Chaney and Krystal Versace for an epic musical.
During and after this moment, viewers race to Twitter to share their reactions – and the hosts have certainly won over fans with their new looks.
One fan said: “The full Ant & Dec on Drag is one of the best I’ve seen on TV!!”
Another tweeted: “#antanddec in drag blew my mind tonight. They look amazing.”
A third commented: “I’m absolutely reeling at @antanddec like drag queens on #SaturdayNightTakeaway. It has to be the highlight of my life.”
Meanwhile, a Wednesday viewer said, “What a show… boys, I loved that episode so much. Nice to have you back on the TV show. Also, best wishes to you to have you back on the TV show. Congratulations for your participation. Love it! Can’t wait for next week!”
A Thursday fan tweeted: “Fantastic performance and you both look incredible.”
Saturday Night Takeaway returns this weekend with some big changes from the previous series.
The live audience was welcomed back with open armsafter the boys had to leave the crowd last year to stay away from society, due to Coronavirus pandemic.
Ant and Dec were amazed, as the crowd cheered for them as they sped down the stage.
As they cheer the return of the hosts and their hits ITV show, Ant was quick to say he’s grateful to have real people back in the studio.
There hasn’t been a live audience for a full series since 2018, with ITV showing in 2019 and then having to drop viewers at the studio for the next two years due to social distancing.
Part of the 2020 series was with audiences, before the hosts had to host final episodes from their homes.
When the guys ran down and greeted the studio audience, they made their way to the bottom and looked shocked.
Ant started gasping for air before gesturing to Dec, who joked that they all looked a bit drunk.
Host Ant said: “Listen, great sound, first live audience in almost two years.
“Oh, we really missed you, we missed you so much. Looking at them all Dec, so full of life.”
Dec joked: “Full of Prosecco by the sounds of it, sit down!”
The pair looked very emotional at such a hearty response from their fans, before Ant later added: “We want our audiences back in the studio!”
Saturday Night Takeaway airs at 7pm every Saturday on ITV.
