WHAT TO WATCH 16-22 July

This week’s best telly includes more Love Island, more The Voice Kids and the return of Sacha Baron Cohen. Here are 7 shows you can’t miss this week...

1. The Voice Kids

Monday 16th - Saturday 21st July at 8pm on ITV

Saturday night saw the return of The Voice Kids which this year is being stripped across 8 consecutive nights on ITV.

We're already halfway through the Blind auditions which saw Pixie Lott, and Danny Jones all return to their big red chairs.

On Wednesday the competition moves to the Battles where three singers from each team perform together for each spot in Friday's Semi-Final. The competition then comes to an end on Saturday with a spectacular live final which this year will see all three coaches perform Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra.


2. Love Island

Monday 16th - Friday 20th and Sunday 22nd July at 9pm on ITV2

It's the penultimate week of Love Island and it seems as though Jack and Dani might have some competition when it comes to scooping that £50k prize.

They're not the only official couple in the villa anymore, there's also Wes and Megan, Ellie and Charlie and Josh and Kaz and if Twitter's anything to go by, Josh and Kaz could end up winning this.

But a lot can happen in a week as we've seen time and time again so whether or not they all make it to the final week remains to be seen.

3. Who Is America?

Monday 16th July at 10pm on Channel 4

Sacha Baron Cohen returns to our screens this week for the first time in more than a decade with a new satirical half-hour series, Who Is America?

In the works over the past year, the seven-episode series will explore the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate the unique nation.


4. Killed By My Debt

Wednesday 18th July at 9pm on BBC One

Newcomer Chance Perdomo and Line of Duty star Craig Parkinson star in this one-hour factual drama that tells the true story of Jerome Rogers, a 19-year-old motorbike courier from Croydon, who sees two unpaid £65 traffic fines escalating to more than a thousand pounds.

Unravelling under the pressure of his mounting debt and with his only source of income, his bike, clamped, Jerome took his own life.

Previously available on BBC Three, the film documents Jerome’s personal journey as his happy and hopeful nature gives in to suicidal despair.


5. Stath Lets Flats

Wednesday 18th July at 10pm on Channel 4

This week as Stath Lets Flats continues, Stath is psyched up for the annual inter-agency football tournament.

It's a chance to get one over the rival agency Smethwicks but when he finds out he's been dropped from the team, he takes desperate measures to get on the pitch. The post-match drinks result in a passionate tryst between an unlikely couple.

Elsewhere, Sophie and best friend Katia plan a surprise dance to show off their talents at the tournament.


6. Keeping Faith

Thursday 19th July at 9pm on BBC One

Keeping Faith continues this week as Faith represents Steve Baldini, a reformed criminal who may know something about her husband's disappearance.

Back at the office, Tom makes a troubling discovery in the company archives that he believes will upset Faith's trust of her husband. DI Susan Williams, a vindictive police officer who has crossed swords with Faith in the past, turns her attention towards Faith's recent behaviour


7. Unforgotten

Sunday 22nd July at 9pm on ITV

This week, ITV's hit drama Unforgotten continues as Cassie, Sunny and the team travel to Middenham to meet Hayley’s parents and twin sister, Jessica.

The press are already circling in the area and it’s clear that unearthing Hayley’s body will bring the whole investigation back into the media spotlight. The team meet retired DCI John Bentley who was an officer on the original case.

He provides information about the investigation and reveals that he believes it was flawed from the start. He tells them that Hayley’s boyfriend at the time, Adrian Mullery, was their prime suspect, but he was never charged.

After a walk around the local area, Cassie develops a theory that as Hayley’s body was found so far from where she disappeared, the murderer could have travelled from London. As a result, the team begin to look at the numerous holiday rentals in the vicinity and who they were let by on the night that Hayley went missing.
