Saturday Night Takeaway fans have been left in shock after Stephen Mulhern revealed he made ITV presenters act "weird".

The 43 year old, who recently shared a peek inside his stylish home where the magic happens, appeared on the show to explain that he played a game of "On Air Dares" with the hosts of Good Morning Britain, Lorraine, This Morning and Loose Women on Monday 22 March.

While many had noticed that the presenters were acting a little odd on air, no one guessed that Stephen was behind the scenes, holding up large white cards with dares written on them.

On one card Stephen told 58 year old Phillip Schofield's co-host Holly Willoughby, 40, to snap at James Martin and say: "Don't tell me what to do!"

Another card saw the star telling Lorraine Kelly, 61, to yawn while speaking to YouTube sensation KSI, while another instructed Loose Women's Judi Love, 40, to pretend there was a spider right next to her.

Kaye Adams was also told to say that "regrets" eating that "vindaloo" in a hilarious scene with her co-hosts.

GMB's 46 year old host Ben Shephard also took part in the game, however co-host Susanna Reid, 50, refused to do or say anything Stephen told her to in a bid to avoid chaos on-screen.

At the end, Stephen announced Holly and Phillip to be winners of the game, explaining they won by a mere three points.

Speaking to SNT hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnely, both 45, he said: "For each card they got correct, they got a point. Let me tell you now… This Morning, they only won by three points. It was so tight that it was just amazing.

"Susanna, she didn't go anywhere near…"

Ant and Dec then said they thought Lorraine did really well as she was on her own, to which Stephen replied: "She did great! And not only the fact that she was on her own but also somebody's talking about their tour and the presenter is going [yawn noise], you'd be like, 'Am I boring you?'".

Fans were left in hysterics by Stephen's segment, as many flocked to social media to express their shock.
