Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night takeaway Finale canceled
CoronaVirus strikes again! Another show, Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway is canceled over the fear of coronavirus, COVID-19. This becomes the most recent show to get halted after many other shows like Wendy’s William’s show. All viewers who won their prize for Place on the Plane will still receive their reward but at a later date.
The official announcement regarding Saturday Night Takeaway
On Saturday, March 14th the showrunners announced this. This was happening because the crew would not be able to go to Disney. They had to go to Disney in Florida to shoot the finale episode.
A spokesperson said in an interview with The Mirror:
“We will no longer be broadcasting the Saturday Night Takeaway finale from Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Walt Disney World has made the decision to close, beginning on Monday 16 March until the end of the month”.
He continued saying:
“The well being of all our prize winners, as well as our production team, is always our number one priority”.
The spokesperson did explain in the interview that they would not forget about the winners of the prize. All the winners of The Place on the Plane will get their rewards at a later date. As soon as the pandemic wears down and the Virgin Holidays and Walt Disney World start operating, the showrunners will contact the winners.
