TV Guide 2014-09-06

Strictly Come Dancing has its launch show (BBC1, 8pm Sun); the full series begins in a few weeks. Biggest new series of the week are likely to be the return of Would I Lie to You (BBC1, 8.30 Fri), and Celebrity Juice (ITV2, 10pm Thu). ITV also has a new run of Celebrity Squares (8pm Wed), but that's opposite Bake Off, and we suspect the audience on ITV+1 will be substantial.

CBBC is going all out to promote a Bobby Lockwood victory on Tumble (BBC1, 6pm Sat), showing Wolfblood all weekend, and Bobby's other activity around the fringes. The new appalong show Pyramid gets a test run (S4C, 5.25 Mon), Just a Minute reaches episode 900 (Radio 4, 6.30 Mon), ITV2 has comedy-reality-prize show Bad Bridesmaid (9pm Thu), and the BBC New Comedy Award is back (4xtra, 10.30 Fri). And it's the end of Celebrity Big Brother (C5, Fri).
