Gutted Saturday Night Takeaway viewers asking the same thing as fan favourite ‘missing’ from show

Someone magically disappeared!

Gutted Saturday Night Takeaway 2023 viewers spotted someone missing from yesterday’s show.

The mix of laughter and mayhem on ITV appeared to be the same as ever.

But eagle-eyed viewers spotted something, or rather someone, was missing.

ITV’s Saturday Night Takeaway 2023 series has proved as popular as in previous years.

Geordie duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly bring a live audience regulars and special guests.

This week Andi Peters caused a Twitter meltdown by showing off his new buff look, wearing a muscle vest in Florida.

And the red-faced presenters were forced to apologise after special guest announcer Toni Collette dropped a swear-word on live TV.

But some viewers spotted that Stephen Mulhern was not part of this week’s helping of chaos.

One tweeted: “Ok Ant and Dec, what did you do to Stephen Mulhern? I only watch SNT for him!”

A second asked: “@Stephenmulhern why haven’t you been on this week?”

And a third said: “@Stephenmulhern where were you last night on Saturday Night Takeaway?? You’re a third of the reason why we tune in!

“My daughter was asking where their brother was hahaha.”
