Every Saturday on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, the ITV presenting pair give one lucky viewer at home the chance to – not just watch the ads – but win them. However, tonight’s episode took everyone by surprise when the fan tuning in from home decided she’d stick with the handful of prizes she’d won already, instead of risking everything to take all on offer.
After asking if she wanted to “stay or play”, Ant and Dec listened intently as their guest took her time.
However, eventually, she decided she wasn’t going to risk the prizes she’d already guaranteed herself – much to everyone’s surprise.
Instead, she took home toothpaste, a year’s worth of Jaffa cakes, a £5,000 Moonpig voucher, and a holiday courtesy of Tui.
Despite the relatively impressive haul, a number of Saturday Night Takeaway viewers took to social media to voice their frustrations at playing it safe.

“OMG can’t remember the last time that happen…. #SaturdayNightTakeaway,” one fan said on Twitter, with a second agreeing: “That’s the first time I’ve ever seen anyone stay! What the hell?? #SaturdayNightTakeaway.”
A third weighed in: “She’s going to stay?! I don’t think I’ve ever heard that before… I love how slowly they’re revealing the prizes to fill time! And still asking her the question anyway. #SaturdayNightTakeaway.”
Another angrily stated: “People who choose to stay on #SaturdayNightTakeaway shouldn’t be allowed to play.”
While a fifth said in disbelief: “Can’t believe she stayed #SaturdayNightTakeaway.”
