Richard Madeley loses it during Ant and Dec Saturday Night Takeaway prank

The segment sees Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly tell stars what to say and do as they meet members of the public, which often leaves them rather embarrassed. In Richard’s segment, he could barely keep it together as he struggled during an interaction with photographer Anastasia who he told he wanted to shoot a calendar.


The clip comes from 2015 but is still as hilarious today as it was five years.

As Anastasia arrived at his home, Richard began: “So you know what this is all about don’t you?”

“Yeah,” Anastasia replied. “I can show you some pictures that I’ve brought on my laptop.

“I haven’t brought you loads to look through.”

With Ant and Dec telling him what to say, Richard goes on to ask: “Have you had any of your work published on the World Wide Web?”

As Anastasia confirmed she had, Richard continued: “How clever is that, the World Wide Web? How does it work?”

The photographer then went on to get out her phone to show some more images to Richard.

“Oh we’re doing it on the iPhone, does that connect to the World Wide Web,” the presenter asked.

Anastasia went on to show Richard her work as he struggled to keep his composure with Ant and Dec in his ear.

“Are you surfing now?” Ant prompted him to say but Richard lost it as he struggled to contain his laughter.

Luckily he managed to keep it together as he asked: “Are you surfing on that? This is an education.”

Richard really struggled with the prank but fortunately, he managed to keep it together long enough.

Fans of Saturday Night Takeaway who haven’t seen the clip already will be able to watch it in full this evening along with other highlights from the show.

It comes as both Ant and Dec are self-isolating and therefore will be presenting from their living room.

Speaking of the plan on Instagram, they explained: “That’s settled then.. this week we’ll be doing Saturday Night Takeaway on the telly… from both our houses!Suits for you at home are optional!”

Last week’s first Saturday Night Takeaway since the lockdown saw the ITV show pull in their biggest audience ever.

Now with the country on an even stricter lockdown, the boys will be hoping even more tune in tonight.

Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway airs tonight on ITV at 7pm.
