Schedules are subject to change.

Highlights this week:

Who Dares, Sings! (8pm Saturday, ITV and TV3)

Daytime property auction series.

Daily Cooks Challenge (3pm weekdays, most ITV regions)

A second series of the challenge for chefs that goes out daily.

Britain's Missing Top Model (9pm Tuesday, BBC3)

Eight beautiful models, seven tough assignments, one incredible prize, one familiar format.

Celebrity Masterchef (BBC1, from Wednesday)

More BBC celebrities go cooking.

Personal Services Required (9pm Wednesday, Channel 4)

Families get to test candidates to become housekeepers and that kind of thing.
