Fuming Saturday Night Takeaway viewers branded Ant and Dec's hit show a 'fix' after James Corden guessed the answer too early.

On Saturday, the 39-year-old comedian played the Read My Lips game where guest stars have to say what the contestants are saying at home by lip reading.

However, Saturday Night Takeaway come under fire when the funnyman appeared to guess 'tiger' before the Brit at home even had time to say the word.

Observant fans rushed to social media to declare the show a 'fix', with some brazen viewers even stating it as a matter of fact that James 'knew the answers beforehand'.

'ReadMyLips is a fix! This is too easy. @JKCorden knows the answers beforehand without a doubt,' one fan confidently penned on Twitter, leading the way.

Another remarked: 'James Corden guessed TIGER before she said it on the screen #SaturdayNightTakeaway.'
