TV Guide 2019-06-08

ITV's new Saturday night schedule kicks in. Stephen Mulhern continues his series with Catchphrase, Harry Hill consigns more fun into the Alien Fun Capsule, and Emma Willis hosts The Voice Kids.

Over on Channel 4, there's a proper finals week for Bake Off The Professionals (weeknights from Tu). We're interested in Groundhog Date (ITVBe, Th), the same date with different people. For the traditionalists, it's the Mastermind final (BBC2, Fr).
