TV Guide 2019-10-05

Two shows for BBC1 daytimes. Headhunters is a new quiz, with a team-or-solo gimmick; Make Me a Dealer is also back. On Channel 4, Your Room or Mine? features interior designers working against each other through the week. House of Games (3) with Richard Osman and more celebrities (BBC2), and Celebrity Coach Trip (E4).

In primetime, Pants on Fire (E4, Thu) asks daredevils to pretend they've done a stunt, and convince the panel they have, even if they haven't. Panel shows return: There's Something About Movies (The Satellite Channel, Thu), Celebrity Juice (ITV2, Thu), and Have I Got News for You (BBC1, Fri).
