Ant and Dec announce mental health campaign milestone on Takeaway – Digital Spy

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly announced a major milestone for the ITV mental health campaign, Britain Get Talking, in tonight’s (February 26) episode of Saturday Night Takeaway. ITV launched the campaign in 2019 on Britain’s Got Talent by pausing the show for 60 seconds, encouraging people to start a conversation with a loved one. To mark the milestone, the presenting duo announced that Britons have started over 100 million “new or more meaningful conversations” since the campaign launched. Taking a moment to make the announcement partway through the programme, Dec began: “Before we carry on with tonight’s show, we have a little update for you.

The pandemic had only just begun – and so had a really tough time for the nation’s mental health. Ant added: “It was a very scary moment, but we know a good conversation has the power to ease our stress and reduce anxiety.” “And Britain, you didn’t hold back,” Dec added. “In fact, ever since we asked you to get talking, the total number of new or more meaningful conversations you’ve started has now officially passed one hundred million.” “Wow. A hundred million. Incredible. But as far as we’ve come, we’re not finished yet!” said Ant. To which Dec added: “It’s just as important as ever to reach out and check in with the ones you know and love.” Taking it in turns to close the announcement with one final reminder, the pair said: “We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again […] Come on Britain […] Get talking.” At the peak of the pandemic in 2020, a March episode saw Ant and Dec sitting in an empty Takeaway studio due to COVID-19 restrictions, before Dec explained to viewers the likelihood of spending more time inside than ever before – and the importance of talking. ITV has also announced a new aim of encouraging those in the UK to take 200 million actions to support mental and physical health by 2023 through initiatives like the Britain Get Talking campaign, which is supported by organisations including Mind, YoungMinds and SAMH in Scotland. Celebrities including Maya Jama, Emily Atack, Joel Dommett and Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid are among those who have shown their support for the campaign since its launch. Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway airs on Saturday at 7pm on ITV. To find out more about the Britain Get Talking initiative, visit the official website here.
