Saturday Night Takeaway aired its final episode of 2020 tonight (April 4) from Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly's houses, due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Amidst the hilarious throwback clips from previous series, including Dermot O'Leary's supermarket-based 'Get Me Out of Ear' segment, the Geordie icons were asked to collect all of their TV awards from over the years by In for a Penny's Stephen Mulhern.

Fetching them out for all to see, the sheer volume of them was unbelievable.

Viewers posting on Twitter couldn't get over how many awards the pair had been given throughout their careers — beating out stiff competition consistently.

One user shared: "I know they've won LOADS of awards but I didn't know how many - 59 between them and they didn't even count the ones Dec couldn't reach [laughing emoji]."

"Crikey all those awards..." added someone else.

Meanwhile, a third said: "I'm not saying @antanddec are at all ungrateful but I'd be having a melt down trying to find space for all of those awards."

Plenty more were in disbelief too:
