This weekend sees the same programmes we’ve been talking about for the past few weeks in our weekend “what to watch.” So in this weeks weekend roundup we decided to scoot past the likes of Eastenders, Take Me Out and Dancing on Ice and focus on what’s actually different to feast our eyes on.
If you’ve forgiven Jason Manford for his Twit(ter) antics then tune into ITV at 9pm tonight for the Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford. Tonight’s guests include Tim Vine, Lee Nelson and regular guest Russell Kane who join Jason for the stand-up and sketch comedy show.
Ladies should also get their knickers at the ready as Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias, will also be on performing his latest single Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You). The more musically minded will also appreciate the tones of James Blunt, who undertakes house band duties for the evening.
If Jason and co don’t rock your boat, and you’ve finished and digested your dinner then
Embarrassing Bodies over on Channel 4 at 9pm may be a better option.
The new series welcomes back the usual medical crew who get paid, probably large amounts of money, to diagnose more people’s intimate problems at home and abroad – well to Fuengirola on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
This week the doctors meet a man with a protrusion he has kept hidden for 10 years. Dr Christian and Dr Pixie in the meantime hit the bars and clubs to find Brits who have received new rapid chlamydia tests.
Back in blighty we meet a woman with two wombs who wants to have a baby.
This brings us to Saturday night, which sees people fight for cash, and Davina McCall fight for her place in TV, in Channel 4′s Million Pound Drop Live, which begins at 9pm.
If you don’t know how the programme works, the basic element goes like this: Contestants are given £1 million at the start and all they have to do is keep hold of it. However, there’s catches along the journey. They are challenged to place a quantity of money over trapdoors and answer a series of eight questions, but the wrong answer will lose them the amount they have set aside.
If after watching 35 minutes of this is sending you to sleep then Benidorm, which kicks off at the precise 9:35pm over on ITV, will get you going. Expect tanned shenanigans and comedy in this silly, but entertaining series in the sun.
And finally Sunday night. If you want to enhance those back to work blues then skip Dancing on Ice and click over to , which starts at 10pm on BBC2.
The documentary follows agents of one of America’s largest investigative bodies, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), as they track suspected US child-abusers overseas. Their investigations take them to Cambodia and also show the lengths paedophiles go to in terms of grooming and other antics.
There’s also tales of child prostitution and parents selling their children to this trade. An interesting and eye opening documentary if you have the stomach to watch this.
