British Entertainment Hit ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’ Won’t Return Until 2020 After Co-Host Ant McPartlin Takes Break

  • Deadline
British entertainment hit Saturday Night Takeaway will not return to screens until 2020 after host Ant McPartlin revealed that he is taking the rest of the year to deal with personal issues.

McPartlin will also step aside from hosting I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here this November, which means that co-host Declan Donnelly will present the jungle format without his presenting partner.

This comes after McPartlin was involved in a DUI and went to rehab earlier this year.

Both shows are produced by ITV Studios, the commercial broadcaster’s own in-house production arm, and are two of the network’s biggest hits. Both shows have been remade in the U.S., I’m A Celebrity was remade for NBC, while Neil Patrick Harris presented Best Time Ever, a remake of Saturday Night Takeaway, for the same network.

Popular British television host Ant McPartlin pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of drunk driving in connection with a three-car crash in London last month that left several people injured. The presenter was fined £86,000 and banned from driving for 20 months, the BBC reported.

“I am truly sorry for what happened,” McPartlin, 41, said on the steps of Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court. “Higher standards are expected of me. I expect them of myself.

McPartlin, who is half of presenting duo Ant and Dec for U.K. broadcaster ITV, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving March 18 after a collision in the London neighborhood of Richmond. Several people had to be treated for minor injuries, and a

Scottish Labour leader questions Dugdale's I'm a Celebrity appearance

Richard Leonard says he is unsure whether going on reality show is good way to promote socialism on TV

The new leader of Scottish Labour, Richard Leonard, has questioned whether his predecessor Kezia Dugdale’s appearance on I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! is “a good way of getting across the message of socialism on television”.

Dugdale, in a message to constituents recorded before she left for Australia to participate in the ITV reality show, described the contest as “an amazing opportunity to talk to young people who watch this programme about politics, and – in particular – Labour values”.

YouTube Star Jack Maynard Departs English Reality Show After Controversy Related To Old Tweets

If you ever plan to become a TV star, you should be careful about what you post on social media. Otherwise, you may end up like Jack Maynard. The 22-year-old vlogger and DJ had his stint on the British version of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! cut short after The Evening Standard unearthed several inappropriate tweets from his teenage years.

The tweets included several common slurs, The Evening Standard reported. Maynard posted his offensive tweets between 2011 and 2013 and has since deleted many of them.

Initially, the YouTube star offered a statement through a representative. “Jack was a lot younger when he posted them in 2012, but realises that age is no defence," the statement reads. "He would never use that language now and realises that, as someone who was bullied himself, this kind of retaliatory, insulting language is completely unacceptable.”

Scottish Msp admits sums involved are not ‘in any sense small’ as she defends her decision to appear in reality TV show

The former Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale has promised to donate part of her fee from appearing in I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here to a homeless charity as she defended her decision to appear in the show.

I’m a Celebrity will be a nice little earner for Kezia Dugdale. But that’s it | Anne Perkins

The former Scottish Labour leader follows a well-trodden path of politicians who have attempted a reality TV career reboot, with somewhat mixed results

Kezia Dugdale, the former leader of Scottish Labour, has jetted off to the Australian bush to join Ant and Dec and the cast of 12 in this year’s I’m a Celebrity. It would be fair to say her decision has split the entire country, and particularly Scottish Labour. Dugdale’s announcement came on the eve of the naming of the party’s new leader, Richard Leonard. The Dugdale affair overshadowed his first meeting with MSPs this afternoon where it was accepted she should not after all be suspended from the party, thereby agreeing with a call Jeremy Corbyn had already made.
