In a new clip from Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway's comedy drama sketch The Missing Crown Jewels, Ant and Dec are introduced to their 'support team' as they attempt to track down the Crown Jewels, which is made up of Britain's most loved celebrities including Carol Vorderman, Jessica Ennis, Dame Shirley Bassey, Alan Shearer and Alan Titchmarsh. However, it is revealed that as part of a top secret operation, the group have been given odd code names that leave Ant and Dec more than a little bemused. Hilarity ensues when it is revealed that the celebrities have been given 'letter' code names, leading to plenty of confusion between the group, which gets even better when Ian 'H' Watkins tries to join the group after running late.

STORY: Ant and Dec tease each other during hilarious 'BFF test'

The pair returned with their hit show in late February with the help of Scarlett Moffatt, who made her debut appearance on the show while trying to find a couple to fly to the studio to get the 'best seats in the house'. However, things went wrong for the star when she couldn't find a single person waving in their windows as instructed, and so ended up knocking on a door in the hopes that they were watching the show.

Fans were quick to praise Scarlett's appearance, with one writing: "Still giggling at @ScarlettMoffatt on #takeaway last night! Makes it so much funnier when you can relate as if she's one of your girls." Another added: "Absolutely loved seeing @ScarlettMoffatt on #SaturdayNightTakeaway she had me in stitches @antanddec can't wait to watch the next one." Speaking about the opportunity, the former Gogglebox star said: "It's like a dream come true – working with Ant and Dec is unbelievable. They are my absolute heroes. Some of my favourite memories are being at home belly laughing with the family watching Saturday Night Takeway."
