Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway viewers complained in their droves over the Pussycat Dolls’ performance on last week’s show, with some complaining it was too racy.
And the hosts have addressed the furore on the latest episode, taking a second to mock the scandal – before some slightly awkward leap year proposals, that is…
Guest announcer Rob Brydon kicked off the show, before checking exactly what was required of him.
‘I do have one request. I saw the Pussycat Dolls on last week’s show,’ the Gavin And Stacey star began.
‘If you think I’m going to dress in a leather corset…’
As Dec, 44, interrupted and insisted they ‘wouldn’t dream’ of asking him to do something similar, he teased that he wouldn’t mind.
‘Let me finish,’ Rob continued. ‘If you think I’m going to dress in a leather corset and PVC boots and perform three minutes of highly explicit dancing, you’d be absolutely right.
‘All I’m saying is, if the script calls for it and people wish their girlfriend was hot like me, I’ll do it.’
We wouldn’t mind seeing that, to be fair.
The quip comes after the Buttons singers performed their new bop, React, on last week’s series opener, with Ant and Dec jokingly rushing to cover up their outfits.
The five-piece – made up of Nicole Scherzinger, Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta and Carmit Bachar – smashed their appearance anyway, but some watching on from home were unimpressed.
And a spokesperson from Ofcom confirmed to Metro.co.uk that 67 people went to all the effort to contact the telly watchdog about their performance.
Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway continues on Saturdays, at 7pm, on ITV.
