The popular British variety-show team of "Ant and Dec" (aka Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly) were at the helm of this satirical "giveaway" show, in which virtually all one had to do to win was show up. Segments included "Going Out," in which random customers are chosen to win valuable prizes at a popular nightspot; "Jim Didn't Fix It," wherein adults who hadn't been selected to appear on the long-running children's series Jim'll Fix It (a "dream comes true" program that granted the participants' fondest wishes) were given a second chance; "Banged Up with Beadle," featuring ubiquitous British MC Jeremy Beadle and a "civilian" trying to solve a puzzle while locked in a small room; and "Grab the Ads," in which contestants had to identify the products in familiar TV and poster advertisements. Created by Denise Harrop, Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway debuted June 8, 2002.
