Fans of Britain’s Got Talent presenting duo Ant and Dec will no doubt know that during their ITV show Saturday Night Takeaway, former BGT stars Spelbound performed an amazing routine…

However, disaster struck backstage just two hours before the show was due to air when Dec tripped over a mat and injured his foot.

The Daily Star reports, “DECLAN Donnelly was ‘decked’ by a gym mat just before Saturday Night Takeaway aired, sparking chaos behind the scenes…

“The Geordie presenter was left reeling in agony after injuring his foot.

“Bosses were unsure if he could be part of their surprise finale, performing with Britain’s Got Talent acrobat champs Spelbound.”

However, despite being in “agony” Dec insisted that the show go on as normal, and made do with having ice packs applied to his foot before going on-stage with his co-host, Ant McPartlin.

A show source said, “No-one knew but Dec was in a lot of pain throughout the show.

“But he didn’t want to let anyone down and knew viewers would love to see him and Ant with Spelbound…

“He was gutted he did something so silly and almost ruined their finale.”

But as fans of the show will know, he and Ant were great sports, donning skimpy costumes and joining the troupe on-stage, with Dec even catching one of the dancers as he flew over the stage.

Here’s a reminder of Spelbound’s appearance on Saturday Night Takeaway…
