I TALK TELLY

WHAT TO WATCH: 2-8 October

This week’s best telly includes the return of The Apprentice, the start of a new singing competition and the finale of Doctor Foster. 

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


1.  Josh | Monday 2nd October from 10am on BBC Three / Friday 6th October at 11:25pm on BBC One

This week sees the hit BBC Three sitcom return for a third series and in the opening episode, Josh’s new girlfriend Millie, takes him to a high-ropes course for a date.

However, when Josh gets stuck on a zip wire, things spiral out of his control, and he ends up accidentally going viral on the internet. Luckily, landlord Geoff has been doing a night course in psychotherapy and can help Josh through this dark period.

Meanwhile, Kate and her mum, Judith, attend a new production from an immersive theatre company set inside a failing business. With the help of a hipflask, the pair truly immerse themselves. And Owen finally gets round to taking his driving test, but when he meets the examiner, Huw, his chances don’t look promising.

2. Liar | Monday 2nd October at 9pm on ITV

Last week’s third episode of Liar revealed, just as charges were dropped against him, that Andrew did put drugs into Laura’s glass of red wine. So it was him lying all along… but we’re only halfway through the series so we can be sure of more twists and turns along the way.

After all, how did Andrew’s wife really die? Laura is determined to uncover the truth and as she travels to Edinburgh she finds more than she bargained for.

Meanwhile, tensions between Tom and Katy reach fever pitch as their secret threatens to surface.

3. Doctor Foster | Tuesday 3rd October at 9pm on BBC One

After last week’s outstanding episode of Doctor Foster, and in my opinion the best episode yet, all eyes will be on this week’s finale to find out what Gemma went on to do behind the wheel following THAT cliffhanger.

In the concluding episode, Gemma goes to extreme lengths in order to come out on top and win back her old life. But this time has she gone too far?

4. The Apprentice | Wednesday 4th October at 9pm on BBC One

It’s that time of year again, where Lord Sugar will out 18 brand new candidates through their paces in a new series of The Apprentice. They’ll each be hoping to secure Lord Sugar’s £250k investment in their business plan and the two words they won’t be wanting to hear are “You’re Fired!”.

In the opening episode, the candidates are put to the test with their first task, rising before dawn to manufacture burgers. The teams have just one day to turn their meaty burgers into a healthy profit by selling them to hungry Londoners.

Straight after the main show, Rhod Gilbert will return to host The Apprentice: You’re Fired at 10pm on BBC Two where he’ll be joined by the latest candidate to be fired and a s joined by a panel of experts and fans who analyse this week’s task and the fired candidate.

Meet this year’s candidates here.

5. Cold Feet | Friday 6th October at 9pm on ITV

As Cold Feet continues in its criminal Friday night slot, the pressure of family life and work sees the walls closing in on Karen despite David’s generous bail out.

Her new business venture may well be her downfall. Will anyone save her from the abyss before it’s too late? When Adam seizes the opportunity to spend the night away from Tina in the name of teambuilding he gets more than he bargained for.

6. Sing: Ultimate A Cappella | Friday 6th October at 9pm on Sky 1

Another week, another singing competition. But this week it’s Sky 1 wanting a piece of the pie and they’re bringing Cat Deeley back to the UK to host.

With no backing tracks, no instruments and no second chances, Sing: Ultimate A Cappella, tests the power and versatility of the human voice. 30 groups will take to the stage at London’s Troxy in the UK’s first vocals-only entertainment show. Using beatboxing, harmonies, choreography and more, they’ll showcase jaw-dropping interpretations of songs by artists from Bowie to the Backstreet Boys, all in the hope of winning the chance to record an album at the famous Abbey Road Studios.

House group The Sons of Pitches chime in with a cappella interludes and guest artists such as Gregory Porter and JP Cooper give stunning vocals-only performances.

In the first episode, the first five groups step up to impress the judges with their vocals, musicality, interpretation and performance. There are mash-ups of hits from Adele, S Club 7 and Run-DMC in the Medleys round, tributes to David Bowie in the Iconic Artists round, and jaw- dropping performances in the final Showdown.

7. Strictly Come Dancing | Saturday 7th October at 6:35pm on BBC One

For two weeks running, Strictly has been the most watched TV show on Saturday night, with 9.3m average both weeks as well as a 10.2m peak. And there’s a good reason for that. And that reason is because it’s perfect Saturday night entertainment that entertains the entire family and year after year the show delivers.

Last night saw Chizzy Akudolu become the first celebrity to depart to leave the Strictly dance floor after losing in the dance off to Brian Conley.

This week, the remaining fourteen couples will take to the dance floor in a spectacular Movie Special.
