ITV has confirmed that Dec will be back in the studio alone helping audience members win the ads in a week's time, and while he might not want Ant replaced with another co-host, will he have a guest host helping him along for some of the segments?

PIERS Morgan has urged Declan Donnelly to break his pact with Ant McPartlin because "the show must go on".

And his partner-in-crime, also 42, is said to be "privately furious" following Ant's drink-drive arrest and return to rehab.

"If it all ended tomorrow, we'd still speak ever day, we'd still see each other all the time and we'd still be best mates", Ant wrote.

While Ant will not be there, Dec will likely have support from his Saturday Night Takeaway colleagues Stephen Mulhern and Scarlett Moffatt.
