TV Guide 2021-11-20

Television's biggest game show is back, I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! returns (VM1 and ITV, from Sun). As one show starts, another finishes - it's the Bake Off final (C4, Tue), and Handmade follows (C4, Thu).

Nostalgia is filled with new Gamesmaster (E4 online, Sun; television, Wed). Elsewhere, there's a new crew for Swashbuckle (Cbeebies, Sat and Sun). We see Bidding Wars (C4, weekdays) and don't know if it's game.
