Simon Cowell gets bumped off in Ant & Dec's new mini-series for Saturday Night Takeaway - but whodunnit!?

And it’s this very fact that Ant & Dec have drawn on for a spoof whodunnit that is set to run this weekend on Saturday Night Takeaway.

Titled ‘Who Shot Simon Cowell?’, the hilarious mini-series will follow the spoof murder of telly’s harshest critic – and slowly but surely uncover who committed the dastardly dead!

Oh, intriguing!


The first instalment sees Simon standing a-top a grand staircase as some of a glitzy group of his showbiz friends – including Olly Murs, Caroline Flack, Alesha Dixon, Louis Walsh, Amanda Holden, and Ant & Dec themselves – sing happy birthday to him.

However, in true Simon style, he soon cuts them off and blasts: ‘That is so obvious. Second song?’

As the guests looked around nervously, the lights go out and a shot is heard – yikes!

But who did it?

Suspects include Louis Walsh (too obvious), Caroline Flack (very fitting), Ant & Dec (possible), Baby Spice (not all sweet and innocent, y’know), Vicky Pattison (random) and even Craig David makes an appearance with a few other famous faces.

Check it out the teaser below!
