WHAT TO WATCH 11-17 June

This week’s best telly includes BRAND NEW Queer Eye, the return of the Chuckle Brothers and of course more... Love Island. Here are 7 shows you can’t miss this week...

1. Grenfell

Monday 11th June at 8.30pm on BBC One

This 90-minute documentary, made over the course of one year by Bafta-winning director Ben Anthony, brings together multiple stories from the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy.

Filming started on the day after the fire and draws from hundreds of hours of interview, archive, social media content and observational footage to form a compelling, moving and lasting record of the events before, during and after the fire.

Grenfell features intimate accounts from many of the men, women and children whose lives were forever intertwined and irrevocably changed that night - some of whom have never spoken publicly before.

The film remembers those who tragically died, while hearing from survivors, the bereaved, members of the local community, faith leaders, the MET police, and the local councillors from Kensington and Chelsea. Grenfell amounts to the largest collection of interviews with people connected to the tragedy to be gathered together in one single film.


2. Love Island

Monday 11th - Friday 15th and Sunday 17th June at 9pm on ITV2

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last week then you'll be well aware that Love Island is back and already one week down we've had new arrivals, a shock exit from the villa and plenty of snogging!

What will week two bring? Will Jack and Dani's romance continue to blossom? Are Niall and Georgia as well suited as they believe they are? And is Rosie really the right girl for Georgia?

Don't forget that as well as the main show six nights a week, Iain Stirling presents The Weekly Hot List on Saturdays and Caroline Flack is live straight after the main show on Sundays with Love Island Aftersun. And if that wasn't enough Arielle Free and Kem Cetinay host The Morning After podcast every morning.

3. Ackley Bridge

Tuesday 12th June at 8pm on Channel 4

This week Kimberley Walsh makes her first appearance in Ackley Bridge as Steve's ex, Claire.

When she turns up at the school, Mandy gets jealous, but is it too late for their relationship?

Elsewhere, it's the day of baby Jamie's christening and ashamed of Cory's lack of interest, Jordan promises to pay for half, but when The Murgatroyds splash out, Jordan can't deliver his side of the cash.

Cory and Jordan unite as they try to hustle some money, but a volatile Kevin brings an abrupt end to their antics. Cory lashes out during Rugby practice, and Missy finds herself at the mercy of a loan shark and bunks off to repay the debt by working at Linda the loan shark's burger van.


4. Humans

Thursday 14th June at 9pm on Channel 4

This week in Humans, as Sam reels from the events of Waltringham.

As Joe struggles to help him through it, truths are revealed and dangerous plans put into action at the Railyard.


5. Queer Eye

Friday 15th June on Netflix

The first season of Queer Eye only launched in February but Netflix are already serving up a second series!

It was such a big hit and was filmed straight after the first series so it's no surprise that the Fab Five are back so soon.

Once again Bobby Berk will take care of the interior design, Tan France will take care of the fashion, Jonathan Van Ness will be "Yaaas Qween"-ing all over the place as he makes over people's hair, Karamo Brown will make us cry again as he looks after the culture and Antoni Porowski will be teaching someone how to cook avocado... probably.

All episodes

6. The Bridge

Friday 15th June at 9pm on BBC Two

This week in The Bridge, Henrik thinks he has found the connection between all the victims, but when he adds the suspects to the investigation board he discovers a completely unexpected, but well-known face...

There is a deep rift between Saga and Henrik, and he is doing everything he can to avoid her. Saga tries to explain her actions, admitting that she did what she did because she thinks that she is in love with him - but Henrik doesn’t understand.

Noticing the atmosphere between them, Lillian questions if they can continue to work together.


7. Chuckle Time

Saturday 16th June at 5.05pm on Channel 5

The last time Paul and Barry Chuckle, aka the Chuckle Brothers had their own show on television was in 2008 but 10 years on they're returning with a brand new show Chuckle Time on Channel 5.

Each week, they'll be watching us make fools of ourselves as the public/audience upload fails, flops and funnies onto the internet.

The clips will be interspersed with bespoke comedy sketches performed by Paul and Barry!
