ANT and Dec were last night surrounded by security guards after a man tried to breach Saturday Night Takeaway filming.
Filming was plunged into chaos when an invader attempted to gatecrash the ITV show while it was live on air.
A scuffle took place near the barriers outside London's Television Centre where Ant and Dec were due to film with Andi Peters.
Pictures show a man dressed in a jacket and jeans and carrying a backpack allegedly trying to access the set.
It all kicked off shortly before the presenters were due to go live with fellow TV star Andi in a sketch that sees them chuck him in a massive ball pit.
The Geordie duo, dressed in white tracksuits, took no notice of the drama nearby as security chased after the man and swiftly restrained him.
The man appeared to break free and was seen running away.
Following the struggle, Ant and Dec walked out of the studios with four security guards.
The stars were dressed in white tracksuits and appeared jovial, even waving to photographers.
As well as hosts Ant McPartlin, Declan Donnelly, Andi Peters, and Stephen Mulhern, guest presenter Davina McCall and comedian Rob Delaney were in the studios to perform on the show.
The Sun has contacted Saturday Night Takeaway for comment.
Last night's show was a huge success, with Ant and Dec successfully embarrassing Davina McCall in what viewers called the best ever Get Me Out Of Ear sketch.
The Geordie pair invented a fake fitness app for the mega-sporty presenter and recruited members of the public to be a part of the video.
They then dove into the fitness DVD, which involved awkward mouth exercises and replacing herself with a body double.
During the clip, Davina agreed to do whatever Ant and Dec wanted.
Her first task was to ask the gathered members of the public to give her a round of applause, before singing "Don't Cry For Me I'm Davina".
After roasting the budding fitness participants, they were seen looking fuming as she continued the class.
She said she only took part in the because she is more "mean" now.
