TV Guide 2020-02-22

It's back! Saturday Night Takeaway (ITV and VM1, Sat) hopes to do to Saturday what Crackerjack! does for Friday. Masterchef (BBC1, Mon, Wed, Fri) makes its annual return. Hell's Kitchen was due to appear (ITV2, Tue, Wed), but was pulled from the schedules very late on. And it's the final of Love Island (VM1 and ITV2, Sun).
