TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows for the nine days commencing Saturday 7 October 2006

New and notable this week:

Strictly Come Dancing (Saturday, 7.50 BBC1)

After two Eurovision entries representing the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia crowd the stage at Wembley Old Trafford, it's back to London for the first in a new series of Bruce and Tess and Twinkle-Toed Celebs.

Mastermind Cymru (Sunday, 8.30 S4C)

The only black-chair action we'll get all week; Betsan Powys becomes the fifth Grand Inquisitor.

The Box (Weeknights, 10pm TV3)

And for viewers to ITV Ireland, we have Keith Duffy presenting a quiz involving two people living in a glass box, doing silly things to earn money, then competing to win it. Expect the ITV version next year, he said without a shred of evidence.

Have I Got News for You (Friday, 9pm BBC1)

Gordon Ramsay reads from the Angus Deayton Memorial Autocue.
