TV Guide 2018-03-10

Masters of their art take centre stage on Sunday: it's the Dancing on Ice final (ITV), and Forsyth fans have Sir Bruce: A Celebration (BBC1).

The press office has flagged up Five Star Hotel (E4, weeknights), but we're not sure if it is a game show or not. In a quiet week, we'll take what we can.
