"Maybe we couldn't do another one, we don't know that yet".

"See you (and yourself!) on the telly!" they added.

Dec added: "For so long as we're allowed, for so long as we're in a position, we will strive and convey you a present and attempt to put a smile on your face".

Olly's performance came before Ant and Dec finished the show with a message to the nation about the Coronavirus.

Following the show's broadcast, ITV was quick to announce that the 21 March broadcast saw an average of 9.5 million viewers, representing nearly half (45%) of all TV viewers.

Speaking on Friday's This Morning, Ant and Dec said they just hope to lift viewers' spirits in a time of uncertainty as a majority of the country enters self-isolation due to the coronavirus outbreak.

"We are still going to run down the stairs, these seats will all be empty but we've got loads of stuff in the show tomorrow night. We just want to get out on air and have some fun".

Panthers adding XFL's top quarterback PJ Walker
According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, XFL players will be able to sign with NFL clubs starting at 9 a.m. on Monday, March 23. Walker initially joined the Colts in 2017 as an undrafted free agent out of Temple.

Ant said: 'I'm sure like us you've all been following the news, and in the current climate nothing is more important than people's health. It is jam packed. "I'm obviously on the edge emotionally but it brought a smile to my face and well up at the same time".

The pair explained that they'd drafted in Olly Murs for the End Of The Show Show, and were asking viewers to send in their own dance videos to be played on big screens in the studio.

There will even be a section of pre-recorded mini sequence Males In Brown that includes cameos from the likes of Simon Cowell, Paddy McGuinness, Susanna Reid and Amanda Holden.

"Our priority is safeguarding the well-being of everyone involved".

And last night's Saturday Night Takeaway seemed to do the trick with entertaining the nation, with ITV announcing the show had its biggest ever audience, with an average viewership of 9.5m viewers, and nearly half of all TV viewers (45 percent).

Confirming the Bradley Walsh prank can be airing this Saturday night time on This Morning, Ant and Dec stated: "We bought him 15 years in the past and he was the angriest superstar and stormed off and would not discuss to us".
