TV Guide 2019-09-07

Cheer because the long wait is over, our favourite hosts return for new adventures. Yes, Gemma and Captain Captain bring new Swashbuckle to our screens (Cbeebies, Sat & Sun).

Claudia and Tess are also back, as Strictly Come Dancing (BBC1, Sat) begins its run to Christmas. The Great Model Railway Challenge sets out on a new voyage of adventure in miniaturised form (C5, Fri).

Bear Grylls hosts Treasure Island (2) (C4, Sun), a prize version of his castaway series. We're interested to see Cooking Up a Fortune (C4, weekdays), selling dishes to the retailers. Perhaps they'll be on the shelves of Rylan's Supermarket Sweep (ITV2, weeknights).
