As one tent comes down, another goes up. Junior Bake Off arrives on C4 (weekdays). They've also unearthed a handful of unseen Four Rooms (C4, Sat), the antiques dealing show we rather liked.

Over on the Beeb, Masterchef The Professionals starts (BBC2, from Tue), and runs until Christmas. It's the series final for Taskmaster (Dave, Wed).
