TV Takeaway in town: Ant and Dec bring Saturday Night shenanigans to Manchester Phones 4U Arena

TV favourites Ant and Dec will be stopping off in Manchester this weekend as they bring their hit show Saturday Night Takeaway to the city – and offer fans a unique front row experience.

The Geordie duo will be joined by special guests including Paddy McGuiness, Ashley Roberts and boy band Blue for a three date stint at Manchester’s Phones 4U Arena.

The hit ITV show, Saturday Night Takeaway, received a BAFTA in 2014 and has appeared on screens, much to the delight of audiences, for over a decade.

“Takeaway is the one show that people always tell us they’d love to be in the audience for, so we’ve decided to take the show to them,” Dec said.

“Just like the TV show the audience will have a chance of winning some fantastic prizes as well as being an essential part of the show.

“It’s been an ambition of ours for a long time to go on tour and we can’t wait to hit Manchester.”

The show promises to feature all of the hit shows favourite segments including Ant versus Dec and Win the Ads, along with a number of new interactive games which will require lots of audience participation.

But those who already have tickets might be wary as the twosome have been doing their homework and no Manchester audience member is safe from having the spotlight turned on them.

Dec added: “The audience are going to be a huge part of the show and they’ll have a big involvement so no two shows will be the same for us which is quite nerve wracking and will keep us on our toes.

“The tour will be everything that you enjoy from the TV show live in the arena.”

Fans have been quick to post on social media their excitement about the event, which will tour across 12 cities in the UK.

Ant added: “We can’t wait to get out there and meet the audience and the people who watch the show.

“We’ve got a lot of ideas on surprising the arena audiences and we can’t wait to put that into practice but then also just getting out there and having fun.

“We’re looking forward to doing Ant versus Dec, Singalong live and Win the Ads but the most exciting thing is getting to see the audience.”

The boys will be stopping of in 12 cities across the UK as part of their 34 date arena tour. For tickets visit: www.phones4uarena.co.uk
