Popular British Show to Broadcast Live from the Magic Kingdom Saturday

Magic Kingdom

The Sun is reporting that popular British television show, Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, will be broadcasting live from the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World this Saturday, April 7th, 2017. This live episode of the show will serve as the show’s season finale.

The show is scheduled to give live at 7 pm in Great Britain or 2 pm EST. The filming of the show has pushed back the daily Festival of Fantasy Parade to 5 pm EST. The show will be filmed in the center of Town Square which has caused the flagpole to be relocated to a different location in Town Square.

200 of Ant and Dec’s biggest fans will also be joining them on their trip “across the pond” for the live taping of the show. Viewers of the show were chose for this Disney adventure during the show’s season premiere back in February. Metro has reported that one of the lucky viewers who will be going to Florida is a little boy who will be meeting his American pen pal for the first time. In addition, popular British TV personalities, Stephen Mulhern and Scarlett Moffatt, will be along for the fun.

Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway is a British variety show. The show has been on the air since 2002 with a hiatus from 2010 to 2013. Ant and Dec are the stars of the show and also the executive producers. The show airs on British television station, ITV. Last year, the show’s season finale was filmed on a cruise ship in Spain.
