So what’s on instead? Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway usually airs at 7pm and runs for 90 minutes. But instead, The Voice UK is being pushed forward to its slot and will run for two hours, finishing at 9pm.

Blind Date continues on Saturday, February 3 on Channel 5 at 8pm. The show features an insurance salesman trying his luck with three self-branded “cougars”, and a businesswoman from Kent hunting the man of her dreams. Paul was a natural choice for Channel 5 of Blind Date, as he was the late Cilla’s best friend. He was so close to the late Scouser he delivered the eulogy at her funeral. The new reboot of Blind Date was brought up to date “while paying respect to the traditions” of the show by allowing gay and lesbian singletons to take part.
It involves one singleton asking three members of the opposite sex questions about them. Their potential blind dates are hidden behind a screen, and the contestant must pick one lucky lad or lady based purely on their answers.
