However as he greeted the audience he made a small slip-up.

“Hello and welcome to your Saturday Night Takeaway live from Universal Orlando Resort in Florida,” Dec exclaimed.

He went on to note: “Where it has literally just started to rain.”

As he continued with his opening he monologue, he made a small mistake as he revealed the show had made history by having more people than ever on the plane to Florida for the live show.

“We have more Place on the Plane with us…,” he noted before quickly correcting himself: “Place on the Plane winners with us than ever before.”

Despite the minor hiccup, Dec managed to sail through the rest of his monologue without another slip-up.

In a video obtained by The Sun, which was taken after the episode came to a close, he referenced the 42-year-old’s absence.
