TV Guide This Week

Saturday sees the first competition in Strictly Come Dancing (BBC1, 6.05) and The X Factor (ITV, 7.30). Readers will wish to lay on sleeping bags and extra provisions, because there's almost five hours of performance there. Low expectations for High Stakes (ITV1 and Channel, 8pm Tuesday), as viewers to UTV don't see it until 11pm, and those watching STV have something else entirely. Elsewhere, Singed by Katie Price (UK Living, 9pm Monday) follows around the Eurovision reject in search of better grammar, the return of Celebrity Coach Trip (C4, 5pm weekdays), and there's a special edition of The Write Stuff (Radio 4, 6.30 Wednesday). New runs of Fferm Ffactor (S4C, 8.25 Wednesday) and Have I Got News for You (BBC1, 9pm Friday).

Schedules subject to change.
