Here are the latest telly trailers to have hit the internet this week…
The Big Family Cooking Showdown | BBC One, Coming Soon
In the absence of The Great British Bake Off on the BBC comes The Big Family Cooking Showdown. The major new competitive food show hosted by Zoe Ball and Nadiya Hussain will see sixteen families will welcome Nadiya, Zoe and judges Giorgio Locatelli and Rosemary Shrager into their own kitchens to whip up dishes using their favourite family recipes.
In each episode, two families represented by three family members will go head to head, tested by three challenging rounds; The £10 Challenge, Home Visits Challenge and Impress The Neighbours challenge.
In The £10 Challenge they must showcase the very best the teams can do to feed 4 with a budget of £10, in 1hr 15 minutes. The Home Visits Challenge sees both families cook a main course and a dessert for Rosemary and Giorgio in their own homes in 90 minutes and finally the Impress The Neighbours Challenge sees both families return to the studio for the deciding round, creating a starter and a main course in 2hrs 15 minutes.
Celebrity Big Brother | Channel 5, Tuesday 1st August at 9pm
See if you can spot the Love Island influences in the trailer for Celebrity Big Brother as Channel 5 hope to convert the many hundreds of thousands if not millions of viewers which deserted the civilian version of Big Brother in favour of the ITV2 smash hit.
Those rumoured to be entering the house include former TV presenter John Leslie, former Girls Aloud member Sarah Harding, former X Factor contestant Amelia Lily, former Corrie actress Shobna Gulati, Gogglebox’s Sandi Bogle, Absolutely Fabulous’ Helen Lederer, Most Haunted’s Derek Acorah, Geordie Shore’s Nathan Henry, Ex On The Beach’s Jemma Lucy, Love Island original Paul Danan, The Cheeky Girls and Barry from EastEnders aka Shaun Williamson.
Make Or Break? | Channel 5, Monday 7th August at 10pm
The timing for Channel 5’s new dating show Make Or Break? could not have been better planned. With the nation still in mourning over the loss of Love Island, Channel 5 have (hopefully) come to our rescue with a very similar show.
Mallorca has been swapped for Mexico and the coupling has already happened, in the real world. That’s right, Make Or Break? acts as a make or break holiday for the eight real-world couples who flee their home comforts in the hopes of saving their struggling relationship.
But that’s not all, they won’t be able to relax as each of the couples will be put on a break the second they land, and every 48 hours they’ll recouple/swap partners and the fun will be watching who will stay with their original partner and who will stray.
Will it be as entertaining as Love Island? Probably not, but I’ll certainly be giving it a go.
Public Enemies: Jay Z v Kanye | Channel 4, Monday 31st July at 10pm
Together, Jay-Z and Kanye West have captivated audiences across the world, transcending their hip-hop roots to leave their mark on business, fashion and even politics. But behind their partnership lies an epic rivalry.
With unseen footage and exclusive interviews with the people who know these two iconic artists best, this programme reveals the story behind their spectacular rise, and their colossal falling out. And it reveals how race, wealth and celebrity are shaping modern America.
The State | Channel 4, Coming Soon
Channel 4’s powerful new drama The State, explores and confronts one of the most important issues of our time. It follows the experiences of four young British men and women who have left their lives behind to join ISIS in Raqqah, Syria. Whilst the drama is completely fictional, it is based on extensive research.
Jalal is following in his older brother’s footsteps in deciding to travel to Syria and fight for ISIS, and has persuaded his best friend Ziyaad to accompany him. Single mother Shakira arrives in Syria with her nine-year-old son Isaac, determined to bring her skills as a junior doctor to the aid of the Islamic State; and teenager Ushna has left her family behind to fulfil what she sees as her religious duty after being radicalised on the internet.
As they experience more of the realities of life in Raqqah, witnessing horrific atrocities carried out by the regime and the bloody aftermath of air strikes, their journeys diverge – into disillusionment and despair on the one hand and increasing commitment to the Caliphate on the other.
Trust Me | BBC One, Tuesday 8th August at 9pm
Ahead of her performance as the new Doctor in Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker plays nurse Cath Hardacre in BBC One’s new psychological thriller Trust Me.
Caring and hard-working, Cath does her best for everyone in the cardiology ward she works on. However, when she raises her concerns about the standards slipping at the hospital her world takes a turn for the worse.
After being sacked for whistle-blowing, Cath turns to her best friend Dr. Ally Sutton, who is leaving her life as an A&E doctor and emigrating to New Zealand with her new husband. At a drunken party Cath finds Ally’s discarded paperwork and makes the desperate decision to take a second chance at life – by stealing her best friend’s identity.
Cath, now calling herself Ally, accepts a job at a failing emergency department in Edinburgh and embarks upon a new life with her young daughter Molly. However, with her good-for-nothing ex-partner Karl trying to spend time with them and a journalist chasing her about the issues at her former hospital, how will Ally cope with leading a double life?
