We have all tuned in tonight too see an ionic moment as Declan Donnelly hosts the show with out his best pal Ant McPartlin after he was charged with drink driving following a collision in south-west London.
A show insider told The Sun that SNT bosses have been 'torn' in regards to how to address Ant's absence.
They said: "Explaining Ant's absence has been the hardest part of planning.
"The bosses are torn in regards to how they can hit the right tone.
"They want to be respectful to people involved in Ant's car accident, while not bringing down the mood of the show."
The source added that producers are worried that a 'sombre start' will affect the show, as it is all meant to be about having fun.
It had also been reported that bosses are toying between three different options - Dec to apologise for Ant's absence and referencing the drink-drive incident, send a goodwill message to his best mate in rehab, or not addressing it at all but joking about presenting on his own.
its safe to say he's getting the worlds support for sticking with the fans and viewers of the show but clearly trying to support his co-star and his bestfriend, a true hero.
we can only now wish a speedy recovery for Ant and personally I can't wait to see the pair back together soon.
