    Ant and Dec have apologised for impersonating people of colour on Saturday Night Takeaway.

    ITV has apologised "for any offence caused" during a performance by Anne-Marie at the end of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.

    The show's hosts wore headbands that featured the Japanese Rising Sun flag during a martial arts inspired performance of Ciao Adios.

    The flag is seen by some as a symbol of Japan's imperialist past.

    Anne-Marie also apologised for the "hurt" it had caused but said she had "nothing to do" with costumes.

    ITV said it has "taken steps to re-edit" parts of Saturday's episode for its catch-up service ITV Hub, and for future broadcasts.

    It comes as a new campaign by Guide Dogs aims to raise £420,000 by the end of the month to train seven puppies from birth to retirement.

    Labrador Anthony and Golden Retriever Declan are training to be guide dogs and it will take them two years before they are ready to support someone with sight loss.

    In a post on Twitter, the TV presenters said: "It was so good meeting these two!

    "Supporting the @guidedogs appeal will help puppy Ant and puppy Dec become life-changing partners for people with sight loss."
