Ant & Dec bring Saturday Night Takeaway to The ChildLine Ball
Long-time ChildLine supporters, Ant & Dec, will be slipping into their suavest suits as they prepare to host of this year’s ChildLine Ball - but this time there's a Takeaway twist!
Taking place at London’s Old Billingsgate this October, the glittering event will be themed around the boys' hit ITV show, Saturday Night Takeaway, featuring music from a very special guest performer as well as favourites from the show including Ant vs. Dec and Win the Ads!
The boys will be joined by showbiz friends including Clare Balding and Stephen Mulhern to raise vital funds for ChildLine – the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people provided by the NSPCC.
'We’ve been big supporters of ChildLine over the years and wanted to do something extra special this year which is why we’re bringing Saturday Night Takeaway to The ChildLine Ball,' they said.
'Every child should have someone to turn to when times are tough, and that’s where ChildLine’s amazing counsellors come in, making sure children all over the UK have someone to talk to about their problems. We’re delighted to be able to support such a worthy cause.'

Founder of ChildLine, Dame Esther Rantzen, is 'delighted' that Ant & Dec are host this year’s Ball, adding, 'I’m sure they’ll encourage our generous guests to dig deep to raise as much as possible to ensure that children and young people in every corner of the UK have someone to turn to – day or night.'
The money raised will help trained ChildLine counsellors to continue providing advice and support to children and young people 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, both online and by phone.
This year, the auction will start early to give those attending the chance to place their bids online before the night itself and to check those diaries for those money can’t buy experiences!
