TV Guide 2014-10-11

With Bake Off gone, what are we going to do with our Wednesday evenings? Simple: we're going to watch the most realistic and most intelligible reality business programme in the country. Yes! Fferm Ffactor is back (S4C, 7.30 Wed). There's also a new run of The Apprentice, if you absolutely must (BBC Red Button, 7.25 Mon).

Overseas fans have things to watch: Fort Boyard Ultimate Challenge comes in from France (CITV, 4.45 Wed), and The Chase Us is in from California (The Challenge channel, 8pm weekdays). There's a new run of Fifteen-to-One (C4, 3pm weekdays), the return of Tipping Point (ITV, 4pm), and a network outing for Jest a Minute (Radio 4 Extra, Friday).
