Ant and Dec are planning to give Robbie Williams a special "end-of-show" surprise on 'Saturday Night Takeaway'.
The TV presenting duo's variety show returns to ITV on February 23, and the Take That singer will be the first celebrity guest to feature in the seven-episode series, which will see the Geordie pair play some explosive pranks on their big-name guests.
Robbie will perform his new single 'Be A Boy' live on the programme and he is to be the subject of a massive surprise.
But the pair have promised it will not be a repeat of the prank they played on the 39-year-old singer when he appeared on their festive show in 2009. During the special episode they covered him in snow after jokingly acting as his backing group and singing out of tune during his performance.
Dec tweeted Robbie a clip of the joke, adding: "I promise this won't happen again."
As well as pranking celebrity guests, the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' hosts have told viewers to expect plenty of "huge-scale stunts" and "hilarious sketches", as well as the return of competition Win the Ads, which sees one lucky audience member play for the contents of a commercial break.
A post on the pair's website stated: "This series promises to be packed full of huge-scale stunts, hilarious sketches, and appearances from some of the biggest global stars - plus you, the lovely viewers at home!
"Oh yes, the cameras will be turned onto members of the public once more as Ant and Dec spring surprises on the studio audience and viewers live across the UK - no one is safe!
"Even the world's top celebrities will be getting involved, as A-listers join the boys in the studio for some of their most ambitious set ups ever."
'Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway' returns to ITV on Saturday February 23, 2013 at 7pm.
