Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly were joined on stage by British Airways cabin crew and a series of iconic Disney and Pixar characters.

The pair were announcing the latest trip to Universal Orlando as the characters brought the party spirit dancing around on stage.

Among them was Shrek, who bobbed along to the music alongside Trolls characters Poppy and Branch and Puss in Boots.

The characters exited the stage behind Ant, 47, and Dec, 46, at the end of the segment, but not before viewers noticed a tumble.

Shrek was seen briefly falling down the stairs, saving himself from a full tumble with his arm before walking off the stage.

Fans flooded Twitter with videos of Shrek falling, alongside a series of laughing emojis, writing: “Shrek’s been on the ale!”

Another chimed in: “I am crying at Shrek falling off the stage HAHAHAHA,” while a third added: “I think Shrek had top many beers.”

“Shrek missing the step and falling over has creased me,” a fourth penned, as a fifth wrote: “Has anyone check on Shrek?”

As the show returned from the advert break, Ant and Dec were quick to give an update on Shrek after his tumble and assure fans he was OK.

Elsewhere, fans of the show were left “sobbing” at emotional scenes as part of the Big Question segment of the show.

Fans of the ITV show took to social media to reveal they were “sobbing” and “in tears” as Rihanna asked her step-dad to adopt her.

Nick had headed to watch the show live alongside wife Katie, when was surprised with the question from their daughter.

He was brought down in front of the live studio audience – looking in shock – before Rihanna appeared from behind the scenes.

She then read an emotional message to Nick before asking the question: “Will you adopt me?”

Nick broke down in tears in the studio, leaving Ant, 47, and Dec, 46, holding back their emotions as they let the father and daughter have their big moment.

But fans at home revealed that they couldn’t control their tears, as they were left “sobbing” over the scenes.
