An Inverness schoolgirl and her friends have won a holiday during the final episode of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

The hosts launched what they called the “happiest minute of all time” to mark the last show after 20 years on STV last night.

As part of the giveaway, they went live to a camera in 12-year-old Samantha Slaven’s Inverness home, where she was watching the show with family and friends.

After cutting to Samantha’s house, Dec said: “Samantha, as someone with spina bifida, you couldn’t find anywhere to play accessible sports, but your amazing friends Billie, Katie, Charlotte and Brooke taught themselves to play wheelchair basketball so you could all form a team together and make sure Samantha wouldn’t miss out.

“You guys are amazing and you’re going on a Takeaway Getaway.”
