Saturday Night Takeaway fans are left in hysterics as Shrek falls off the stage mid-show
‘Did I really just see that?!’ Saturday Night Takeaway fans are left in hysterics as Shrek falls off the stage mid-show with Ant and Dec unaware of the chaos behind
Saturday Night Takeaway fans were left in hysterics during this weekend’s episode when Shrek took a tumble and fell off the stage mid-show.
The character’s trip went completely unnoticed by presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, both 47, who were blissfully unaware of the hilarity behind them.
Concerned for the ogre’s well being viewers of the show flocked to Twitter to ask the hosts if he was ok.
Meanwhile, other fans questioned if Shrek had been ‘on the happy juice’ while someone else joked that they had rewinded the show to watch the moment again.
One person penned: ‘Howling at Shrek taking a tumble. we had to rewind for a second take!’

Another person added: ‘I swear I just saw Shrek take a drop off the back of the stage.’
‘Shrek falling over on Saturday Night Takeaway!! I’ve got tears!’ A third person wrote.
One fan joked: ‘Has Shrek been on the happy juice this week?’
When the show returned after the ad break, presenter Stephen Mulhern made sure to address the situation.
‘If you saw Shrek fall off the stage before the break, he’s in A&E,’ he quipped with a straight face before adding: ‘Just joking he is fine!’
Last weekend, Saturday Night Takeaway fans were left fighting back tears as Ant performed sign language to two competition-winning deaf brothers.
The TV host and co-star Dec were in the audience of the ITV show giving out a ‘Place on the Plane’ to the show’s live final in Orlando, Florida to deserving audience members and viewers.
And Ant proved he was a conscientious host as he appeared to learn British Sign Language when telling brothers Tony and Tosin Kalejaiye that they’ve bagged themselves a spot on the plane thanks to their amazing fundraising.

Approaching the shocked siblings in the crowd, Ant said: ‘Hi guys! Tony and Tosin were both born deaf.
‘They were fitted with cochlear implants at the age of two but they were determined to help others in the same situation.
‘They’ve been fundraising since they were just four years old and so far they’ve raised an incredible £25.000 to help other deaf children across the world. We think you’re incredible…’
He then added: ‘And you’ve got a place on the plane!’ with the star signing the last part of the sentence to the brothers.
