TV Guide 2018-06-09

Something of a "will this do?" week, devoid of much excitement. Take Me Out has an Over 50s special (ITV, Sat). Gaby's Talking Pictures (R4, Sun) is a newish film quiz (but we'd like to hear it to confirm). Ninja Warrior reaches its final (ITV, Sat), as does Best Home Cook (BBC1, Wed and Thu).

Our highlight is 24 Hour Game Show Marathon (, Sat-Sun), amateur recreations of classic shows in aid of charity.
