TV Guide 2023-01-14

Saturday night is graced by Celebrity Bridge of Lies (BBC1), and some Michael McIntyre show that isn't The Wheel and hence doesn't concern us. Junior Bake Off has a new run (C4, from Mon).

ITV wheels out its big guns: Dancing on Ice (ITV, Sun) and Love Island (ITV2, from Mon).

The biggest event of the year is the / Bother's Bar Poll of the Year Results Show (The Internets, Thu). Bad Boys Inc. will perform for us, and there will be other surprise guests.
