While The Chase takes time off (Jenny is doing very well on The X Factor), Cash Trapped fills in (ITV, weekdays). There's a new run of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue (Radio 4, Mon), and a second series of Celebrity Countdown (More4, Tue).

It's Children in Need week, the Friday telethon (BBC1) contains more game show elements than usual. At 10, they all nip out to a fancy restaurant, the result is Dragons' Den Does I'll Get This (BBC2).
