‘I thought this was a family show?!’ Saturday Night Takeaway fans left VERY distracted as a gold-painted Stephen Mulhern slips into tight shorts
The much anticipated new series of Saturday Night Takeaway returned to screens this weekend, with hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, both 45, serving up their usual dose of fun and frolics.
However, it was their co-star Stephen Mulhern who got everyone talking after arriving at the studio painted entirely in gold paint, and wearing a gold tank top and shorts – and showing off far more than he intended.
The presenter, 43, left viewers quite flustered and not knowing where to look with the tightness of his shorts, with some questioning on Twitter: ‘I thought this was a family show?’

Stephen left Ant and Dec in hysterics when he turned up in his eye-popping gold ensemble to introduce the Ant Vs Dec tournament, and pretended to do a back flip with the help of a stunt double.
He joked that he ‘said no’ to appearing on the show but ‘money talks’ before he showed off his painted-on abs to Ant and Dec, who couldn’t stop laughing at his attire for the evening.
Even Olly Alexander, who was the guest announcer for the show, joked that Stephen had upstaged him with his looks, even though the singer planned on changing his outfit every time there was a break.
