What can ITV audiences expect from the documentary?

When the Ant & Dec Saturday Night Takeaway-themed documentary was first announced, it was hinted that the hour-long project would explore both the highs and the lows behind the show.

Discussing the project at the time, Dec revealed he and Ant were inspired to produce a fly-on-the-wall type show after watching shows like the Formula 1 docu-drama Drive To Survive on Netflix.

The ITV description of the show adds that viewers can expect "an exclusive look into what goes on behind the scenes in making one of television’s biggest entertainment shows in a specially commissioned fly-on-the-wall documentary."
