TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the seven days beginning 1 September 2007

Schedules are subject to change.

New and notable this week:

Eurovision Dance Contest 2007 (8pm Saturday, BBC1 and RTE1)

Graham Norton and Claudia Winkleman host.

Escape From Scorpion Island (BBC1, 5pm weekdays)

Reggie Yates and Caroline Flack invite youngsters to... well, isn't it obvious?

Hell's Kitchen (ITV and TV3, 9pm weekdays)

Marco Pierre White asks people to make food. Angus Deayton adds the sauce.

Don't Call Me Stupid (ITV, 10pm Tuesday)

Alexander Armstrong hosts as Bez and James Whitaker swap passions.

Holly & Fearne Go Dating (ITV, 10pm Wednesday)

One from the department of may or may not be a game show: the titular Holly Willoughby and the equally-titular Fearne Cotton find dates for other people. And not themselves.
