Viewers had their minds blown last night when they tuned in to Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway to the bizarre sight of a couple getting married to each other with Ant acting as the registrar.
Of course a lot of the show’s fans were less than impressed with most saying that it’s embarrassing to get married on live television, the Mirror reports.
So it’ll probably come as a great relief to those miserable sods that it wasn’t actually a real wedding. Yes, it was all just for show, can you believe they’d do such a thing for television of all things!
Many fans seemed to have been brewing up when Dec points out during the show that as neither he or Ant are qualified registrars, nor is the studio an approved site to conduct a wedding, so any ceremony they conducted would be as legal binding as a particularly slack elastic band.
So the pair were already married when the whole debacle took place, meaning that it wasn’t just cringe worthy it was fake too.
People took to the Internet’s megaphone, Twitter, to shout their anger about TV faking something.
Imagine having your wedding on Ant and Dec Saturday night take away. Morons

Well, it was all a bit of fun at least…
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
