what to watch: 21-27 november


This week the brilliant I’m A Celeb continues, Ordinary Lies and Crazyhead come to an end and David Walliams is back with a brand new sketch show.

Here are the 7 shows you have to watch this week…

1. I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! | Monday 21st November – Sunday 27th November, 9pm on ITV


Usually by now, we’ve seen a few arguments, a few people threaten to walk and celebrities freak out during bush tucker trials. Not this year! It took six days for the first argument between Martin Roberts and Danny Baker. Which was actually just a disagreement really, as Martin didn’t like Danny’s gloating.

So for the most part, the campmates are getting on famously, and for a change, they actually are famous. Radio legend Danny Baker and Homes Under The Hammer host Martin Roberts joined Jordan Banjo, Wayne Bridge, Joel Dommett, Ola Jordan, Larry Lamb, Scarlett Moffatt, Sam Quek, Lisa Snowdon, Adam Thomas and Carol Vorderman in camp as late arrivals.

This week there will be  more surprises in store for the campmates, but who has what it takes to make it to the end? And as they battle to remain in camp, can they endure all the jungle has to throw at them?

2. Two Doors Down | Monday 21st November, 10pm on BBC Two


The residents of Latimer Crescent are back for more domestic disasters, in a new six-part series of Scottish comedy Two Doors Down.

In the first episode, a very tanned Cathy and Colin have returned from a luxury cruise and seem strangely keen to persuade neighbours Eric and Beth to join them on their next trip. There’s confusion – until it becomes clear they have the ulterior motive of a cheap deal in their sights.

With Eric and Beth politely declining, the determined couple have another target in mind. Christine, fresh from a PPI refund windfall, wants to crow about her good fortune and Beth is railroaded into holding a celebratory barbecue – the perfect moment for the holiday bargain hunters to pounce.

It’s not long before moods turn foul though, along with the weather, and Colin and Cathy take the hump when their plan is rumbled, storming off and taking their barbecue with them.

Cathy has the last laugh when a mishap leaves Christine as charred as the sausages on the grill. Ian and Jaz meanwhile, have decided to buy a flat together.

Written by Gregor Sharp and Simon Carlyle, Two Doors Down explores the best and worst of family life and was filmed at Scotland’s Dumbarton studios and on location around Glasgow.

Eric is played by Alex Norton, Beth by Arabella Weir, Cathy by Doon Mackichan, Colin by Jonathan Watson, Christine by Elaine C Smith, Sophie by Sharon Rooney, Ian by Jamie Quinn and Jaz by Harki Bhambra.


3. Ordinary Lies | Tuesday 22nd November, 9pm on BBC One

Ordinary Lies 2 Ep 6

As the second series of Ordinary Lies draws to a close, the final episode focuses on General Manager Jenna, played by Angela Griffin.

Always immaculately dressed and highly organised, Jenna is an image of perfection: she has the ideal apartment, car, the perfect clothes, a wonderful fiancé and job.

However, behind Jenna’s composed exterior, she is hiding a dark secret. Struggling to escape her lingering past, combined with her frustration at the recent IVF results, Jenna finds herself in a troubled place.

As she tries to distract herself with a wild night out which ends in disaster, her wayward sister comes back on the scene and she threatens to ruin the life that Jenna has built for herself.

With Jenna’s dark past lurking, is her perfect life about to unravel?

Meanwhile Ally is still determined to help Ash through his depression. Will she finally realise her worth when she catches someone else’s eye at Coopers?


4. Crazyhead | Wednesday 23rd November, 9pm on E4


This week sees E4’s new comedy/horror series Crazyhead conclude.

With Halloween upon them, Amy and Raquel go into hiding. A bottle of vodka and a game of Jenga later, it becomes clear that not even the girls’ closest allies can be trusted. As events spiral dangerously out of control, Amy finds herself facing her biggest challenge yet.

5. Who Do You Think You Are? | Thursday 24th November, 8pm on BBC One

Ep1 - Danny Dyer

Stars from the world of TV, theatre, music, comedy and news join the thirteenth series of Who Do You Think You Are? which returns to BBC One this week.

EastEnders actor Danny Dyer hopes that he will “freak a few people out” with his family history and he certainly does that in the opening episode of the series.

Danny sets out to discover the history of his tough working class family in the East End of London, but in the process unearths an unexpected lineage leading to the heart of the Tudor court, and extraordinary royal ancestry.


6. Alan Carr’s Happy Hour | Friday 25th November, 8pm on Channel 4


Alan Carr throws open the doors to a brand new series, Alan Carr’s Happy Hour where celebrity guests, stand-up comedy, variety acts and live music are all on the bill.

Filmed at a social club in front of a specially invited audience, Happy Hour is Alan’s own club night packed full of big laughs, amazing audience surprises and exclusive performances.

Brought together by Alan’s trademark humour and charm, it’s the best night out you can have, without ever leaving home.


7. Walliams & Friend | Friday 25th November, 9:30pm on BBC One

David Walliams and Friend S1

Walliams & Friend features a different guest ‘Friend’ every episode, creating a one-off, brand new double act with David Walliams each week. This week, it’s award-winning comedian Jack Whitehall who joins David Walliams for a variety of comedy sketches.

See Jack Whitehall as you’ve never seen him before. This episode includes Jack and David’s inappropriate take on Sherlock and Watson; the world’s worst dating show contestant and Jack doing something David has never done before – dressing as a woman.
