TV Guide 2016-04-02

Lots coming up this week, but little as good as the Saturday Night Takeaway finale (ITV, Sat). Classics returning include The Unbelievable Truth (R4, Mon), Young Musician of the Year (BBC4, Fri), and Have I Got News for You (BBC1, Fri). Too Many Cooks (C4) and Battlechefs (W) are both week-long contests about food. The Almost Impossible Game Show (ITV2, Wed) is also back, but you can do better than that.
