This week’s best telly includes (of course) Love Island, a new Katie Price reality series and a new BBC One thriller.
Here are the 7 shows you have to watch this week…
1. Love Island | Monday 10th – Sunday 16th July at 9pm on ITV2
Whilst ITV2 haven’t announced the date of the Love Island finale yet, it’s VERY CLOSE and it’s ANYONE’S for the taking.
Marcel and Gabby are still going strong, Kem and Amber have made it official and Alex and Montana still seem pretty strong. But things aren’t looking that good for Tyla and Jonny and Chris Olivia.
Elsewhere, will Camilla continue to fall for Jamie and will Georgia and Theo manage to break up anyone for their own gains?
Oh and with Caroline Flack hinting on Sunday Brunch that there’s a twist ahead with the £50,000 prize, I’m in denial that this series will ever end.
2. Katie Price: My Crazy Life | Monday 10th July at 10pm on Quest Red
Katie Price never used to have a camera crew far behind her and now she’s let the cameras back into her life for a new twelve-part series for Quest Red called Katie Price: My Crazy Life.
She is one of Britain’s most recognisable figures, a ubiquitous tabloid sensation whose life has been played out in a firestorm of media attention. The series promised to offer Katie an opportunity to step away from the spin and tell her story in her own words.
The series grants unprecedented, all-areas access to her mad, beautiful world, as she juggles being a full-time mum of five with the demanding reality of simply being Katie Price.
With over 100 animals taking residence on her vast estate, a posse of glamorous friends forever ready to party, and a schedule that would exhaust even the most energetic; cameras will follow every moment of the mayhem.
We’re told to expect drama, unscripted hilarity, and an inspiring insight into the demands placed upon a very modern family.
3. In The Dark | Tuesday 11th July at 9pm on BBC One
This week sees the start of Danny Brocklehurt’s (Ordinary Lies) new drama for BBC One, In The Dark.
The four-part series starring MyAnna Buring, Ben Batt, David Leon, Ashley Walters and Emma Fryer is adapted from books by best-selling novelist Mark Billingham.
DI Helen Weeks grapples apprehensively with pregnancy and is compelled to return to her loathed rural home town of Polesford, Derbyshire with her partner and fellow detective Paul. Two girls have been abducted and the man arrested is married to Helen’s childhood best friend, Linda Bates (Emma Fryer).
As a result, Linda has been drawn into the centre of a media storm and the local police force is under enormous pressure to get their man. But is he guilty? And why is Helen so desperate to come to Linda’s aid, after avoiding Polesford for all these years?
4. Ackley Bridge | Wednesday 12th July at 8pm on Channel 4
This week might see the end of
Waterloo Road Ackley Bridge but Channel 4 have already announce that it will back next year with twelve episodes, double the current run.
In the series finale, Mandy’s professional life collides with her personal life when Alya outs her and Sadiq’s affair at the school’s first Open Day.
As Mandy fights for her job, but chooses to put her pupils before her career, Steve comes to her rescue, but will it be enough to repair their relationship?
Meanwhile, Candice reveals the true identity of Jamie’s father, leading Jordan to spiral. Feeling neglected by Emma, Chloe gets caught up in Jordan’s plans to leave Ackley Bridge, only for them to fall foul of the police.
5. Who Do You Think You Are? | Thuesday 13th July at 9pm on BBC One
As the new series of Who Do You Think You Are? continues, this week sees the turn of Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood to delve into his family history.
Revealing his softer side, Craig heads to his home town of Ballarat in Australia and investigates what happened to his great-great-great-grandfather who risked everything in the Australian Gold Rush.
A visit to his beloved 100-year-old grandmother sends Craig in pursuit of another maverick ancestor. His great-great-grandfather Harry turns out to have been the life of the party and, better still, a fabulous dancer.
