TV Guide 2019-08-24

Some great new quizzing action for your Saturday night. Rhannu (S4C) invites another sixteen people to pick their champions. Who Wants to be a Millionaire (ITV) will give away much more money, but you've got to be in the same studio as Jeremy Clarkson.

Over on BBC1, The Rap Game promises to make someone a star. There'll be a star baker as Bake Off returns (C4, Tue).
