Coming up this week, a new Saturday night entertainment. Fferm Ffactor Selebs (S4C, Sat) features two teams of celebrities who try to herd diggers and drive pigs. We've also Got Talent (ITV and VM1, Sat).

ITV's big drama for Easter week is Quiz (Mon-Wed), telling the story of the coughing scandal on Millionaire. The new version is back, with a Who Wants to be a Millionaire Celebrity Special (ITV and VM1, Sun).

On BBC2, I'll Get This returns (Tue). Angela Barnes takes over on The News Quiz (Radio 4, Fri), and it's the grand final of Masterchef (BBC1, Fri).
