Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly have confirmed they will be presenting Saturday Night Takeaway live from their homes this week.

The Geordie duo took to Instagram to post a clip of their video call to one another, as they are unable to see each other in person due to social distancing rules to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

They announced that instead of filming live from the studio, tonight's Saturday Night Takeaway will feature best bits from the show.

But Ant and Dec will be watching the show, so they vowed to watch it live on Instagram together from their homes and stream it to their fans.

Ant and Dec video chatted and decided to watch Saturday Night Takeaway and stream it live

The long-time best friends chatted via video call, when Dec asked Ant what he had been doing.

"Not much," Ant replied.

"Isolating, it's all the rage you know!"

Dec told Ant he felt strange not being at the Takeaway studio, then asked him: "What are you going to do Saturday at 7 o'clock?"

Ant replied: "I'm going to do what the rest of the country are doing, ordering a takeaway and watching Takeaway."

"I'm getting a curry!" said Dec.

"I'm getting a Thai," said Ant, to which Dec jokingly warned him: "You've changed!"

Ant went on to suggest: "'I know, tell you what if we're both going to be watching it why don't we watch it together with the rest of the country.

"Do the show on telly from both our houses."

Dec asked if that was possible, to which Ant reassured him: "Of course it is, we could do it, it's 2020, we're living in the future, man!

Dec then put on a suit for the next clip and exclaimed: "Hell yeah, let's do it, I'm going to wear a suit and everything!"

Ant will be watching the show from his £6million love nest he shares with girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett and her two children.
