WHAT TO WATCH 17-23 September

This week’s best telly includes a brand new reality show, the first live Strictly Come Dancing show and the final episode of Bodyguard. Here are 7 shows you can’t miss this week...

1. The Circle

Tuesday 18th September at 9:15pm on Channel 4

Channel 4's latest reality show/social experiment couldn't have come at a better time as The Circle launches just days after the announcement that Big Brother is to come to an end after this current series.

Hosted by Alice Levine and Maya Jama, The Circle is a brand new reality show in which players live in isolation in the same building, but never meet face-to-face. They can only communicate and compete against each other through a specially-designed, voice-activated social media platform called The Circle.

The Circle enables players to chat, make friends, break friends, argue, compete against each other, flirt and maybe even fall in love, while playing to win up to £50k.

Continues every night for three weeks apart from Saturdays at 10pm.

2. Bad Move

Wednesday 19th September at 8pm on ITV

After a successful first series last year, Jack Dee's Bad Move is back for a second series in which the rose-tinted fantasy of an idyllic country lifestyle proves to be further away than ever from Nicky and Steve.

With their crumbling wreck of a house continuing to throw problems at them, Nicky (Kerry Godliman) and Steve (Jack Dee) have to deal with everything from an infestation of moths to a septic tank that's 'backing up' as Ken charmingly puts it.

In the opening episode of the new series, they struggle to find a builder willing to fix the gaping hole in their roof.


3. Joanna Lumley's Silk Road Adventure

Wednesday 19th September at 9pm on ITV

As Joanna Lumley's Silk Road Adventure continues, Joanna travels to Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi.

She kicks off her journey in the brash, booming seaside resort of Batumi, where post-Soviet era new money has seen casinos and high-rise hotels built alongside old Soviet tenement blocks. It’s a huge change from when it was a small backwater and the border to Turkey was closed.

Tbilisi has hints of the old Soviet occupation, but its name is derived from the Georgian for ‘warm’, a nod to the 30 hot springs which provided respite for weary Silk Road travellers. There are also hints of the city’s 19th century days of splendour, and Joanna visits the Kipshitzes family, who have spent 20 years restoring the family home to its former glory, making it the last intact, 19th century townhouse in the whole of Tbilisi.


4. No Offence

Thursday 20th September at 9pm on Channel 4

Following last week's dramatic series opener, No Offence continues this week as Beckett's next target is revealed... Manchester's children!

DI Viv Deering and the team must track down the poisoned batch of halal meat that Beckett has unleashed on the city before it's too late.

In the hunt to get closer to Beckett, DC Dinah Kowalska attempts to win the trust of the undercover cop in the midst of the far-right group Beckett used to be involved in and uncovers explosive secrets.


5. Strictly Come Dancing

Saturday 22nd September at 6:15pm on BBC One

Two weeks ago we saw the celebs were paired with their professional partners and this week the competition really gets going as all 15 couples take to the Strictly ballroom to perform live in front of Dame Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Head Judge Shirley Ballas.

The judges will score each couple for the first time, but luckily there will be no farewells this week.

Instead their scores will be carried over to next weekend when viewers will get the chance to vote for their favourite couple and one couple will sadly leave the competition.

6. Killing Eve

Saturday 22nd September at 9:25pm on BBC One

As Killing Eve continues this week on BBC One (for those who haven't binged on every episode on BBC Three), Villanelle is ordered to take a break in the aftermath of her recent assignment.

Never one to do as she’s told, she goes ahead with her next mission regardless.

Meanwhile, Eve is given a dream opportunity to join a secret MI6 unit tracking Villanelle and the shady organisation she works for


7. Bodyguard

Sunday 23rd September at 9pm on BBC One

This week sees the biggest new drama on British television in over a decade, Bodyguard, reach its conclusion with an extended 75-minute final episode.

Principal Protection Officer David Budd has made a major breakthrough in the investigation into the attack on the Home Secretary, but his enquiries have put him in mortal danger. With the clock ticking and no one left who believes him,

David attempts to prove his innocence. But the evidence against him begins to stack up...
