7 October You're Back in the axe
ITV has announced today that the hypnotic You're Back in the Room with Phillip Schofield has been axed after two series. Viewing figures from the second series slipped by a quarter - to just over 3 million - and producers struggled to find suitable celebrity names who were keen to make a fool of themselves.

3 October Your time starts now
Tomorrow is the start of the third series of Taskmaster, which was not supposed to be shown until 2017, but was brought forward after the second series received a positive reception. Dave, the channel showing Taskmaster, has recommissioned the show for series 4 and 5, which are due to be filmed next year. Both of these series will have an extended run of 8 episodes.
