Viewers were confused by Stephen Mulhern's absence

Fans took to Twitter to praise the comedian, with one person writing: "Please get @StephenMulhern on again despite his pleas to go home!!! He was brilliant, so funny!! Had me and hubby crying with laughter," while another added: "@StephenMulhern was excellent on #wilty, hope he goes back sometime!"

While viewers may have missed the comedian on Ant and Dec's show on Saturday, they were left in stitches by another famous face in the latest instalment. The presenters welcomed former I'm a Celeb runner-up Jordan North onto the show to host their weekly segment, The Happiest Minute of the Week, which celebrates those who've gone the extra mile to help others.

Jordan North appeared on the latest episode

Jordan left viewers giggling after he accidentally forgot what day it was while surprising the manager of a restaurant in Finchley. As he entered the restaurant, he said: "Hi, sorry to disturb everyone, I know you're eating your tea on a Sunday night. Sorry! Saturday night! Saturday! Saturday! Sorry!"

One person took to Twitter to comment on the hilarious mistake: "Class bit of the show. Even better knowing you were working on Saturday Night Takeaway AND stated 'Sunday night' when going into that restaurant! [...] Such a Jordan thing!"
