Saturday Night Takeaway fans slam show for messing with father's baby scan experience



Saturday Night Takeaway fans call out the show for their 'distasteful' prank on a new father.

Ant and Dec played a prank on a first-time dad by creating fake footage of the 4D scan of the baby.

During a visit to the hospital, a pregnant woman named Amy and her husband Liam were getting ready to have a glimpse of their baby.

An actress, posing as a sonographer, told Liam to speak to Amy's baby bump. He was shocked to witness his 'baby' wave back at him.

At one point, the fake sonographer told Liam to play peek-a-boo with his baby, and he happily gave it a go.

"It's not even his baby," the presenters told the camera as they watched the father look at the screen in awe.

Fans weren't amused with the prank, which Amy was in on, and took to Twitter to complain about the 'cruel' moment.

"Is it just me or does this feel in really bad taste, messing with a father's first time experience like this," one user said.

Another added: "Anyone else think this is actually quite cruel? This poor man thought this was his baby and it’s not!"
