TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 14 August 2010

Two new shows for Saturday mornings: Escape from Scorpion Island (BBC2, 8am) and Fighting Talk (Radio 5, 11am). Cookery fans are also well-catered for: Celebrity Masterchef comes to an end (BBC1, from Wed) and The Great British Bake Off (BBC2, 8pm Tuesday) has Mel and Sue seeking a great baker. What's wrong with Richard? Two long shows begin: The X Factor reviews its last search for the Christmas number 2 (ITV2, all week), and Mastermind starts looking for its next champ (BBC2, 8pm Friday).
