TV Guide 2019-03-02

After a few quiet weeks, it's all go for new shows. It begins on Saturday with !mpossible Celebrities and All Together Now (BBC1). On Sunday, Côr Cymru is back on S4C, and Race Across the World starts on BBC2.

Hate the show, not the girl: Channel 5 strips The Bachelor. Hate the host, not the show: ITV strips Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

On the more obscure side of things, there's competitive cosmetics on Glow Up (BBC3 on BBC1, Wed), and competitive fashioning on Dim I'w Wisgo (S4C, Fri). An underground clue hunt for Y Siambr (S4C, Thu), but if that's too difficult we also have Al Murray's Great British Pub Quiz (Quest, Thu).
