TV presenter Phillip Schofield will discover his feminine side this weekend as he dresses in drag for a new segment on Ant And Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Pictures released ahead of the programme see him don a bright red miniskirt with matching high heels and stockings – complete with suspenders – in a bid to make the show hosts laugh.

His elaborate costume is in aid of the new Make ‘Em Laugh competition, which will see him and his This Morning co-star Holly Willoughby go head-to-head against the comedy duo.

The aim of the game is for each team to use jokes, props, and anything they can think of to make their opponents laugh and lose the game.

But Ant and Dec will prove themselves up to the challenge by dressing up as the This Morning stars themselves.

Ant will channel his inner Holly with a blonde wig, fake breasts and black dress, while Dec sports a grey wig and smart shirt for his impression of Phil.

Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway returns to ITV on Saturday at 7.30pm.
