SATURDAY Night Takeaway fans were left fuming as Ant and Dec announced that the show is OFF air tonight.
They reminded fans on Twitter explaining that ITV had opted to air the rugby instead.
The pair said on Saturday afternoon: "Remember there’s no show this weekend as we pass Saturday night over to the rugby.
"But they’re only borrowing it! We’ll be keeping your Takeaway warm until it all kicks off again in studio next Saturday 26th March!"
One raging viewer replied: "Why don't they put rugby on another f**king channel."

They also explained last weekend that they would be getting a break – and it was news to many fans.
Declan said: "You may have heard, some of you, that there is no show next week because of the rugby."
To audible groans Dec, 46, added: "I know. It's sad."
ITV revealed earlier this month that Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and the Starstruck final have both been postponed next week to make way for a rugby double-header.
