Coming up

  • Blockbusters - Place yourself on the hot spot please because everyone's favourite teatime game show makes a comeback to our small screens after an 11 year absence. (TalkbackThames for Challenge)
  • Saturday Night Takeaway - After a three year break, Ant & Dec's variety format gets a revival. (Gallowgate Productions for ITV1)
  • The Love Machine - Contestants get a selection of potential dates to decide whether to stick or twist, based on the dates looks and tackle some of the issues that everyone else faces on a first date. Chris Moyles and Stacey Solomon host. (Princess Productions for Sky Living)
  • Cleverdicks - Ann Widdecombe hosts as four contestants answer a series of general knowledge questions. One contestant is eliminated in each round, after which the last contestant standing takes on a video wall of questions in an attempt to win the prize money. (Splash Media for Sky Atlantic)
  • Love Shaft - Contestants travel up a tower block, meeting a potential suitor on each floor. Will Best presents, and hopes no-one spots this is The Love Bus turned through 90 degrees. (Lucky Day for E4)
  • Stagestruck (working title) - Amateur dramatic groups submit auditions via video. Eight groups are chosen by the judges to progress to the next stage where they will receive expert tutoring. One group is eliminated each week until only one remains, with that group being declared the winner. (Oxford Film and TV for Sky Arts)
  • Worth a Fortune - A series of objects are placed in front of four contestants. Using only their intuition, they must correctly guess the value of all the items. In each round, the contestant who is furthest away from the total is eliminated, with the last contestant standing winning the prize money. (Studio Lambert for ITV1)
  • Don't Stop Me Now - A studio audience is split into three sections - singers, comedians, and variety acts. An act from each section is then selected to perform. After the performances, the audience vote for who they want to leave the competition, with that act leaving by unusual methods (unusual if you haven't seen 101 Ways... that is) such as trapdoors and bungees cords. Hosted by Total Wipeout's very own female sidekick who can say things like "Oooh", "Eeeh" and "How sad!", Amanda Byram. (Magnum Media for Sky1)
  • Breakout - Two 30 space tracks stand between the contestants and the prize money. Contestants must decide whether to work their way down one track as a group and share the prize money, or breakout on their own, and cross to the other track in the hope of reaching the end first, thereby taking all the prize money for themselves. Nick Hancock hosts. (Gogglebox Entertainment for BBC2)
  • The Voice - Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates host a singing competition with a difference (or as it's known to the rest of us, a gimmick). The judges sit with their backs to each contestant as they audition, meaning the only thing they have to base their opinion on is the contestant's voice. Based on the Dutch format, The Voice of Holland. (Shed Media for BBC1)
  • Off By Heart Shakespeare - Children compete at reciting bits of Shakespeare from memory. Declaiming rather than acting. More details on the BBC Schools programme site. (Silver River for BBC2)
