The Weakest Link
The cut-throat quiz show returns with an EastEnders special, leaving host Romesh Ranganathan quipping, ‘Someone who thought they were eliminated will make a surprise return!’ With a prize of up to £50,000 for charity, stars including Kellie Bright, Natalie Cassidy and Delroy Atkinson are testing their general knowledge while banking cash.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Ant and Dec are back with a new batch of VIPs lining up to take the plunge into the Aussie unknown. Tonight’s show reveals which of the rumoured stars made the cut as 2023 campmates, and they’re put to the test with the usual epic launch.

Deal Or No Deal
The classic game show is taking up residence in the Tipping Point slot for the next four weeks, with Stephen Mulhern proving a worthy successor to the great Noel Edmonds. The game itself remains unchanged: there are still 22 boxes to be opened, each containing a different amount of prize money. However, while the infamous 1p box is still here, the top prize is now a mere £100,000, not £250,000. Damn that cost-of-living crisis!

Bargain Hunt: Doctor Who Special
Russell T Davies hinted Whovians could look forward to a big treat today. Odds are, he was referring to the colourised revamp of the Time Lord’s first encounter with the Daleks from 1963, airing on BBC4. But imagine if this show was what he had in mind! Join Eric Knowles as he’s transported to daytime TV’s version of The Death Zone – Carmarthen antiques fair – where two teams battle for Who memorabilia.
Two Doors Down
This excellent sitcom set in a cosy Glaswegian suburb is finally awarded a BBC1 slot a decade after its debut on BBC2. Series seven sees the return of Colin’s (Jonathan Watson) estranged, egotistical and argumentative wife Cathy (a ferocious Doon Mackichan), and she’s chosen the perfect time to crash-land back into her ex’s life – at a surprise birthday party he’s thrown at home for girlfriend Anne-Marie.
