Declan Donnelly Gets Standing Ovation After Presenting 'Saturday Night Takeaway' Alone

Declan Donnelly is zoomed in on alone while waving to the audience on the Saturday Night Takeaway set and shouting out a countdown while the crowd cheers.

"We have lots to cram in and I've got twice the amount of work to do".

Ant is still expected to get screen time in a pre-recorded comedy sketch.

It was rumoured that U.S. chat show host James Corden will lend his presenting skills to the show but Ant and Dec's representative has denied these claims. "I knew he would be incredible, well done @antanddec!"

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

A Saturday Night Takeaway source told the paper: "Dec is very much the solo host tonight - it's not going to be him and a sidekick".

Scientists say they've discovered new human organ
They identified the fluid as lymph, which contains infection-fighting white blood cells that drain into the lymphatic system. The discovery could lead to a better understanding of diseases, such as how cancer can quickly spread through the body .

Australian cricketers Smith, Warner out of IPL
Even as the Australian cricket is under stress after the ball tampering allegations surfaced, the fall out is still continuing. The fact that he's only played 15 IPL matches might act as a deterrent against him being elected as the captain.

Yet mobile users still had to go to almost 20 different places to access all of their privacy controls. To be sure, users have always been able to download a copy of all the information that Facebook keeps.

Tonight's Saturday Night Takeaway featured Stephen Merchant on duty as the Star Guest Announcer, and Stephen Mulhern took to the streets of Warrington for In for a Penny.

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.

The show - which was cancelled last Saturday - was labelled a success as Dec oversaw an nearly seamless live 90-minute show with his only mishap dropping a carton of popcorn.

He also made light of the situation later in the show, commenting that he would have to take over the "End Of The Show Show" preparations himself, "like everything else this week".

Dec, 42, who recently confirmed he is going to be a father, will also present next week's final episode in Florida.

The decision was made after Ant McPartlin was charged with drink driving following a collision in south-west London last Wednesday (March 21).
