TV Guide 2018-08-25

Just the one new series this week, The Great Breadxit Burn-off spreads more money-shaped fug across Channel 4 (Tue and Fri). Or, if you prefer, The Great British Bake Off shares Paul Hollywood's wisdom with the world (C4, Tue and An Extra Slice Fri).

Elsewhere, Celebrity Eggheads continues (BBC2, weekdays), Hannah Fry has a documentary about The Joy of Winning (BBC4, Tue), and Celebrity Big Brother continues (C5 and 3e, all week).
