Closing off the show, and joking about how it was now called ‘Stephen Mulhern’s Saturday Night Takeaway, he informed fans the next episode was the final one this season as he said: ‘Join me next week for the last show of the series’

In the seventh episode, Mo Gilligan will be their special guest announcer, and Mo Farah will be taking part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Outta Me Ear.

Other highlights set to appear on the programme include the final episode of their drama Double Trouble, which sees their evil clones target them.

At the end of the episode, it was also confirmed by a voiceover from ITV that the show would be airing its last episode of the season the next week.

MailOnline has contacted ITV representatives for further comment. 

During the show, Stephen also revealed he had orchestrated an elaborate prank with Lorraine Kelly, Holly Willoughby, Phillip Shofield and the Loose Women earlier in the week.

During her interview with KSI, Lorraine, 61, was seen dealing with a pesky fly, leg cramp, a bout of yawning, and a mouse in the studio. 

Lorraine’s antics matched those of all the presenters across the ITV daytime brand, including Good Morning Britain, This Morning, and Loose Women.

Ant and Dec said that they organised the hilarious show prank by asking fellow presenter Stephen to hold up signs with words that Holly, 40, and Phillip, 58, had to say during the broadcast. 

The bizarre segment last week saw Holly share that she was ‘bursting for a wee’, before she and Phillip constantly chatted over chef James Martin as he attempted to present his cooking segment. 

Stephen held up a series of white signs with various random phrases and tasks written on them that Holly and Phil had to try and incorporate into their scripts.

One of the tasks the pair had to complete was ‘pretending to have cramp’ which Phil then acted out, prompting Holly to say: ‘You have a cramp? Salt, I’ll walk it off and get some salt.’

Leaping from her chair on the socially-distanced set, she then wandered from one end of the studio to the kitchen, before saying: ‘I can’t find it! Can’t find the salt!’

Other phrases they had to include in their scripts were ‘don’t mug me off’, ‘flaps’ and ‘big bush’.

The instructions from Stephen sparked chaos on set and viewers quite rightly took to Twitter in droves to share their view that their actions were all part of a ‘prank’ coordinated by Ant and Dec.
