During the show, which aired from Florida's Universal Studios, Dec chose not to speak about his best friend's absence. But once the cameras had stopped rolling, he paid tribute to Ant, and called on the audience to give him a round of applause. In a video posted on Twitter by an audience member, Dec can be seen saying: "Thanks for all the love and support, it's been a series tinged with... well…" When an audience member then shouts out, "We miss Ant", Dec replies: "Yes, we do, we do. Would you give a round of applause to Ant, who's back at home. Thank you so much. He'll appreciate that a great, great deal."
