Ant and Dec suffer seriously awkward moment during audience surprise segment

Ant and Dec suffered a cringeworthy awkward moment during tonight's series launch of Saturday Night Takeaway.

Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly, both 44, were back for the hotly anticipated new series when an embarrassing moment occurred live on air.

The ITV presenters introduced a segment where they were giving one couple a house at the start of the show.

The hosts took a serious turn as they told the audience that guests Petra and Simon lost their daughter when she was only 9 half years old.

However at the the same time, the audience began giggling as the mum was picking her teeth on the video screen behind them.

Dec pulled an awkward face as they said: "Lets not focus on what's happening on the screen" to the audience.
