TV Guide 2021-07-31

Sportsball continues on the BBC this week, and most of the commercial channels give up on anything new. We have got Lego Masters Australia (E4, Sun) and Masterchef Australia (W, from Mon), so do remember to turn your television upside down. And don't forget the final of Can I Improve My Memory? (C4, Thu).
