  • This Morning's Holly Willoughby and Ant McPartlin

Declan Donnelly has been backed by fellow broadcasters after his first ever solo presenting role on Saturday Night Takeaway. "That other bloke was good - you should do some more stuff with him", he joked after Ant made an appearance in Saturday Knight Takeaway.

"@SamdySonxxxxx posted: "@antanddec @itvtakeaway Dec you did yourself & Ant proud, it was a fabulous but emotional show, keep smiling. looking forward to next week".

Taking to Twitter, Dec wrote: 'Thanks for all your lovely messages tonight, they are VERY much appreciated, I'm glad you enjoyed the show.

Speaking about going it alone, Dec said in a statement: "Whilst I never thought I'd be in this position, after much discussion and careful consideration we've decided that the remaining two shows of this series of "Saturday Night Takeaway" will go ahead".

Regular support presenters Stephen Mulhern and Scarlett Moffatt also lent a helping hand as did guest announcer Stephen Merchant who also referenced Ant's absence on several occasions.

Kathleen Wynne: Doug Ford Would 'Take A Bulldozer' To Ontario As Premier
Ontario's Liberal government says it plans to fund free child care for thousands of kids across the province starting in 2020. He has repeatedly said he wants to wrest power back from the "elites" and has lambasted the Liberals for their spending.

Dec then casually spoke about Ant - and their former sm:tv co-host Cat Deeley - as he explained it was Takeaway's last show in the ITV Studios they've grown up working in.

Although officially hosting solo, Dec was supported by presenter Davina McCall as part of a new segment related to McCall's own show, This Time Next Year. "I knew he would be incredible, well done @antanddec!"

He was right. Dec did do a remarkably good job of holding the format together for its 90-minute broadcast.

The unexpected change was forced to have occurred after Ant was charged with drink-driving, following a auto crash in south-west London.

McPartlin will appear in court on April 4.
