'Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway' will end next month with a two-hour special.

The Geordie duo will bring an end to the ITV show's 22-year run with the "party to end all parties" on April 13 that will feature Girls Aloud as the Star Guest Announcers and celebrity guests including Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts and pop group S Club.

Meanwhile, stars including Simon Cowell and Olly Murs will have the chance to get vengeance for Ant and Dec's pranks in the feature 'Get Out of Me Ear: The Revenge'.

Ant, 48, said: "We're looking forward to making the last show a party to end all parties."

Dec, also 48, added: "We will most certainly miss it."

The pair previously revealed that they have decided to step away from 'Saturday Night Takeaway' as they "need a break" to spend time with their families.

Ant - who is expecting his first child with his wife Anne-Marie Corbett - told Fault Magazine: "We do the show and then 'Britain’s Got Talent', but on a more personal level, part of the reason we’re pausing 'Takeaway' is we need a break ourselves, and we need to spend some time with our family. We’ve both got children that we need to spend time with for a little bit.

"We need time to think and, and time to step back and look at the bigger picture and just see where we are now. You know, like I say, 'We’re turning 49, and what do we want to do next? What’s the next phase of our career?' And we’ve got lots of ideas and lots of offers on the table, lots of options of things we can do.

"But it’s working on what we do next and where the next chapter begins. So that’s what we’re gonna do when 'Saturday Night Takeaway' is out of the way. We’ll sit down, take a bit of time, and reevaluate everything."
