Saturday Night Takeaway fans accuse show of blunder after Sam Fender ball-picking ‘mishap’


SATURDAY Night Takeaway fans were locked in debate – with some accusing the show of a blunder in one of the live competitions.

Rocker Sam Fender had been asked to randomly select a ball to choose who won, with the singer announcing he’d chosen a seven.

Sam Fender said he’d picked a seven but many felt it was a one
Fleur East then handed a holiday to the seventh-placed player

That meant the bloke holding the number seven paddle – Wayne – won himself a Takeaway Getaway holiday.

However, many viewers at home insisted it was actually a one that singer Sam had yanked out.

Fans quickly objected with one posting: “Definitely a no 1 not 7” while another tweeted: “That was definitely a number 1.”

Another posted: “The number picked for under the rainbow looked like number 1 not 7.”

No data found

However, it wasn’t clear who was right, as Sam held it up towards the camera at an angle.

Another viewer insisted: “Not sure if that is a 1 or a 7… Could just be a weird font.”

I’m A Celeb star Fleur East has been presiding over the Chase the Rainbow game – where viewers have to rush out of their homes if they spot colours in the sky near their house.

They are each then assigned a colour and a number and in today’s game winner was picked out by Sam.

Tonight, Dec announced that Chase the Rainbow was coming to an end, explaining that we will not be seeing it again.

However, Ant insisted their pal would return to screens, saying: “Fleur will be back in two weeks with something very exciting.”

Tonight saw the last Saturday Night Takeaway for a couple of weeks with Ant and Dec explaining that it was being taken off air in favour of rugby next week.

Dec said: “You may have heard, some of you, that there is no show next week because of the rugby.”

One viewer tweeted: “What do you mean there’s no show next week because of the rugby, why can we not have nice things.”

Saturday Night Takeaway is having a break and will return in two weeks
