Ninja Warrior UK is back and this time it's bigger, faster and tougher than ever before as Ben Shephard, Rochelle Humes, and Chris Kamara return to host as a new group of Ninja Heroes attempt to complete TV’s toughest obstacle course.

For the first time in Ninja Warrior history, the hunt is on to find two champions as the UK’s top female and male competitors take on the toughest and most challenging course ever to be crowned Ninja Warrior UK Men and Women’s Champions.

The contestants will not only face each other and a dastardly difficult new course, but they will also have to face the Elite Ninjas, a team of professional Ninja Warrior athletes determined to beat them in head-to-head races.

Everything is on the line to face triumph or failure in front of family, friends and the nation to be ultimately crowned as Ninja Warrior UK Race for Glory Champions.

2. The Great British Bake Off

Tuesday 13th September at 8pm on Channel 4

The Great British Bake Off is back, as the nation's most famous tent gets pitched on the grounds of Welford Park once again. Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas return to lead the latest batch of bakers through 30 brand-new challenges set by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.

The series kicks off with Cake Week and the bakers' first opportunity to impress the judges. In the Signature, they are challenged to produce 12 perfect mini cakes.

Next under the gingham cloth are the ingredients for their first Technical... a striking sponge cake which should be familiar. Finally, the bakers create a Showstopper that expresses their architectural skills as they make a scaled-down version of a home close to their hearts, entirely from sponge.

Twelve bakers, three challenges, only one can be crowned star baker, and sadly, one will be going home.

4. All Creatures Great and Small

Thursday 15th September at 9pm on Channel 5

As All Creatures Great and Small returns to Channel 5 for its third series, Siegfried decides to give James a poorly timed reminder about his responsibilities as a vet while he prepares for his honeymoon with Helen, leaving James feeling torn between his professional and private life.

James feels further challenged when he encounters farmer William Henry at the Drovers, who worries that his cows might have tuberculosis. After a heavy night, James finds himself high up in the Dales at Henry’s to perform a second round of TB testing far from where he’s supposed to be on his wedding day. Despite Tristan being given an important task by James and Helen, Siegfried decides to take charge of things on his brother’s behalf.

An unforeseen mishap at the practice involving Mr Mulligan’s vomiting dog Clancy leaves Siegfried scrambling to resolve things before James, Helen and Tristan find out. Tristan is sent to convince James to put down his work at Henry’s and come back to Skeldale. When it emerges that one of Henry’s cows is more unwell than initially thought, James feels unable to leave the farm.

A word from Mrs Hall helps Siegfried realise the influence that his words have on James. Siegfried shows him that sometimes difficult choices have to be made and recognises James’ dedication to his job by making him junior partner at the practice. He feels grateful that, as vets, James and Tristan are in protected jobs so unable to volunteer to fight in the potential war.
