While the hosts later tried to play it up as they warned other guests not to swear at the family show.
“Welcome to the show, don’t swear. We already had one tonight, we can’t have another,” the duo joked.

“I can’t believe Saturday Night Takeaway managed to book legend Toni Collette,” wrote one viewer.
While another said: “Toni Colette is so beautiful”.
