There's a lot of sportsball on the BBC this week. Daytime faves Bargain Hunt and Pointless hop over to BBC2, or in the case of Pointless know they're on BBC2.

But we do have some proper entertainment! Hello, second series of Michael McIntyre's The Wheel with Michael McIntyre! Hello, non-Christmas episode of Take Off with Bradley and Holly with Bradley Walsh and Holly Willoughby. Both are on BBC1 on Saturday.

This year's Bake Off the Professionals are crowned (C4, Tue). And that's celebrity husband David Mitchell with a new run of The Unbelievable Truth (R4, Mon).
