TV Guide 2018-11-03

Lots of new daytime shows this week. Dame Sandi Toksvig fires a new batch of questions on Fifteen-to-One (C4, weekdays). Paul Martin trains his replacement on Make Me a Dealer (BBC1, weekdays).

Joe Lycett returns to Saturday night with The Time it Takes (BBC1). BBC2 primetime sees a new run of Masterchef The Professionals (from Tue), and I'll Get This (Tue) decides who pays for a slap-up meal. On Channel 4, a new build of Lego Masters (Tue), while on Sky One, there is The Heist (Fri).

As more shows begin, some end. Top Class screeches to a halt (CBBC, Sun). Taskmaster confirms its winner (Dave, Wed). And, after eight series, Big Brother takes its leave from Channel 5 (Mon).
