TV Guide 2016-09-10

A good week for quizzes. The Chase with Celebrities comes back (ITV, Sun), Top Class (CBBC, weekdays) seeks the nation's brightest schoolchildren, and Cwis Pop C2 (Radio Cymru, Fri) finds the Welsh-speaking schoolchildren with good pop knowledge. They might also watch BBC Red Button just before 4 on Sunday for Popmaster in the Park.

Elsewhere, Dating in the Dark returns (ITV2, Thu), so expect couples to fumble around with the lights off.

Live sport disrupts Great British Menu this week, and knocks Channel 4's afternoon schedule for six.
