TV Guide This Week

Strictly Come Dancing begins in earnest on Saturday, and Strictly Come Dancing It Takes Two resumes (BBC2, 6.30 weekdays). There's a new run of Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2, 10pm Monday), and the second series of Beer & Pizza Club (ITV4, 10pm Tuesday). New runs of The Apprentice Ireland (TV3, 9pm Monday) and America's Next Top Model (UK Living, 9pm Tuesday). And the return of some old faves - Splatalot (BBC2, 8.25am Saturday), Don't Scare the Hare (BBC1, 2.50 Saturday), and Impossible? (Channel 5, 11pm Wednesday).

Schedules subject to change.
