TV Guide 2019-07-27

What will ITV do once its big summer competition has finished? Yes, it's the final of The Voice Kids (Sat), where we find out the most talented young singer in the contest. It's also the final of Love Island (ITV2, Mon), where we find out if they're going to share or... er... haven't they already..?

Never mind. On Radio 4, a new series of Gaby's Talking Pictures (Wed), a panel game about movies. With Eurovision Choir of the Year next week, BBC Alba nips in to profile their contestant (Thu).
