TV Guide 2021-02-13

The final of The Masked Singer (ITV, Sat) ends the series. If you've got complete withdrawal symptoms, ITV2 might ease with The Masked Singer Us (weekdays). It's also the final of Celebrity Home Cook (BBC1, Tue and Wed).

A Valentine's Day special of, er, Breaking the News (Radio Scotland, BBC Scotland, Sun). Not the show we most expected to get in the romantic mood, but there we are. New series of Tenable (ITV, weekdays) might make your top ten.

Saturday 13 February

  • Fighting Talk (Radio 5, 11am).
  • Four in a Bed (C4, 12 noon) Five episodes.

  • Pointless Celebrities (BBC1, 7.30) Writers: Jane Fallon, Fiona Neill, Nadia Shireen, Conn Iggulden, Richard Madeley, Tim Weaver, Jill Mansell. Since this episode was recorded, Allison Pearson has turned from a poor writer into someone who doesn't give a monkeys whether anyone else lives or dies. We recommend liberal use of the fast-forward button. It's a good episode to bury against the final of The Masked Singer.
