TV Guide 2015-09-19

The long wait is over! Deal or No Deal is back (C4, weekdays), in a lunchtime slot befitting its viewing figures. Funz and Gamez (BBC3, Tue) might be filthy, and might not be a game. Celebrity Big Brother gets off our screens (C5, to Thu).

In Wales, we're catching up with the choirs from Codi Canu (S4C, Sun) and have an appalong game Rhestr (S4C, Thu). In Ireland, think in sync on Four Heads (RTE1, Sun). And in Scotland, Instant Millionaires catches up with big winners (BBC Alba, Thu).
