TV Guide 2017-04-22

It's all about the dancing this week. Khyrese makes his debut after taking The Next Step (CBBC, Tue), and the BBC Young Dancer contest finds a winner (BBC2, Sat).

Taskmaster is back (Dave, Tue). So is A League of Their Own (The Satellite Channel, Thu). The Boss (BBC1, weekdays) is all about being in control. There's a documentary about Big Brother contestant Anthony Joshua (BBC1, Tue; The Satellite Channel, Thu). New physical game Bigheads (ITV, Sun) normalises abusers; we'll be watching Grange Hill episodes from 1994.
