"Thanks for tuning in guys and the best is yet to come!"

What they didn't expect was to be inundated with comments asking them to get rid of the Saturday night episode which not only recaps the previous week's antics but shows unseen footage, but people didn't take kindly to the lack of live viewing.

One wrote, "Love it but please can we not have a highlight Saturday show please."

Another said, "No more crappy highlight shows thanks."

Only last week was Ant & Dec's gruelling timetable for the ITV series revealed in the background of one of their Instagram stories, which shows the pair don't wrap up working until 12:45 am each night after starting work at around 5pm.

Guys, they're giving us live shows six day a night, we think one night off a week sounds fair, right?!
