TV Guide This Week

Lots of new and returning shows this week. Celebrity Five Go to... (C4, 5pm weekdays) is an activity show for minor celebs. The Biggest Loser is now on ITV (9pm Monday) and hosted by Davina McCall. That just feels wrong. Cwis Mwyaf Cymru (S4C, 5pm Thursday) is Wales's Biggest Quiz hosted by children's presenters, and Michel Roux's Service (BBC2, 8pm) is a rare trip into competitive preaching. Or is it competitive waiting?

In a change to the episode billed in most listings magazines, this week's Only Connect will be the 2010 Championship of Champions, pitting the Epicureans against the Gamblers. BBC4, 8.30 Monday.

Back amongst us are Total Wipeout (BBC1, 6pm Sat), In It to Win It (BBC1, 8pm Sat), May the Best House Win (ITV, 2pm weekdays), Antiques Road Trip (BBC2, 5.15 weekdays). Countdown moves to an earlier time (C4, 3.10 weekdays), and there are lots of episodes of The Superstars (ESPN Classic, from Tuesday). Ireland gets its own version of Take Me Out (TV3, 7pm Sat), and the live performances begin on The All-Ireland Talent Show (RTE1, 6.30 Sunday).

Schedules subject to change.
