TV Guide 2018-02-24

After a quiet few weeks, lots of new shows. Saturday Night Takeaway returns (ITV, Sat), and there's a new contest of Masterchef (BBC1, from Mon). A "tenth anniversary" episode of Take Me Out (ITV, Sat) proves only that the producers cannot count.

More play-at-home fun with Remotely Funny (CBBC, weekdays). The Chris Ramsey Show (Comedy Central, Wed) comes from the basement. Can i Gymru (S4C, Thu) is this year's song contest.

Ending this week: Survival of the Fittest (ITV2), Coach Trip (E4).
