TV Guide 2016-04-09

Two of the biggest shows return. Britain's Got Talent (ITV, Sat) seeks the country's favourite pack of playing cards. Wild Things (The Satellite Channel, Sun) asks who is under the hood.

As one talent show begins, two end. Last in the series of BBC The Voice of Holland of UK (BBC1, Sat), which looks to be Cody Frost versus Kevin Simm. And the last ever Pop Idle Us (4Music, Tue).

Also this week: Fifteen-to-One (C4, weekdays) for a summer series, Chopping Block (ITV, weekdays) for cookery fun, The News Quiz (Radio 4, Fri) for comedy, and Sion a Sian (S4C, Fri) for attached couples.
