Saturday Night Takeaway viewers slam ‘inappropriate’ song played on family show

Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway viewers have slammed an "inappropriate" song performed during the show's grand finale.

Fans of the ITV primetime show watched pop star Raye and DJs Joel Corry and David Guetta perform their latest single Bed.

However, some viewers watching at home moaned that the lyrics were not appropriate for a family show.

The chart-topping song includes the lyric: "I got a bed, but I'd rather be in yours."

Fans took to Twitter to complain, with one person saying: "What a whole-heartedly inappropriate song to kick off an evening of Saturday night family entertainment with. Bizarre."

Another posted: "'I’ve got a bed but I’d rather be in yours tonight' ummm. guys. This is a family show."

A third person said: "Two things one inappropriate song for children and two If she’s in my bed where am I going to sleep"

However, others really enjoyed the performance and couldn't get enough of the catchy song.

One fan tweeted: "Love @JoelCorry @davidguetta and @raye new single Bed. Just such a fab song. And I LOVE how happy Joel is when he DJs – you can tell he's just living his dream and it's so awesome to watch."

A second person said: "YESSS @raye absolutely smashed it"

A third viewer gushed: "Love how good @raye is at live performances."

The musical performance at the start of the show wasn't the only part of the show which got viewers talking.

For the final part of the show's segment Ant VS Dec segment, Stephen Mulhern dressed up as a trophy complete with a hilarious pointed gold hat.

Ant made a cheeky dig at Stephen as he asked: "What's the little knob on your head?"

Dec and Stephen began chuckling and viewers found the TV moment hysterical.

One said: "'Whats the little knob on your head'", with two laughing emojis.

While another penned: "Omg hahaha what's the little knob on your head Ant!!", with five laughing emojis

"What’s the little knob on ya head", laughed a third.

Game of Talents marks a TV comeback for Vernon, who previously presented All Star Family Fortunes from 2006 to 2015 and Splash! from 2013 to 2014.

Father-of-two Vernon, who is married to Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly, made an even bigger name for himself last year after finishing third on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in Wales.
