TV Guide This Week

The Chase gains some celebrities and a Saturday night slot (ITV and TV3, 6pm), and The Cube makes its return (ITV, 7pm Sunday). Cookery fans have professional contest Best Dish - The Chefs (ITV, 5pm weekdays) and children's show Junior Bake Off (CBBC, 6.20 Mo-Th). There are new runs of Argumental (Dave, 10pm Thursday) and the long-awaited return of Mastermind (BBC2, 8pm Friday, not Wales). For all this yang there must be some yin, and it comes in a second run of Tool Academy (E4, 10pm Tuesday). Don't forget to miss it.

Schedules subject to change.
