Every night at 9pm on ITV

As this year's celebrities including Caitlyn Jenner, Ian Wright, Kate Garraway and Nadine Coyle settle into camp, Ant & Dec will be on hand every single night with the latest jungle highlights.

2. Cold Call

Monday 18th - Thursday 21st November at 9pm on Channel 5

Sally Lindsay stars in Channel 5's new gripping four-part thriller Cold Call as a working-class single mother and carer who becomes the victim of a cold call scam.

June is an ordinary woman who falls victim to fraud and loses her life savings. Determined to get her money back and seek revenge on the perpetrators, June wants to get to the bottom of the criminal enterprise that targeted her, regardless of the consequences.

After attending a support group for victims of such scams, she meets old school mate Des Grigsby (played by Daniel Ryan) who persuades her to take a job caring for the mother of respected businessman Kirk Wiley, who he suspects is involved in the criminal enterprise that targeted both of them.


3. Flirty Dancing

Friday 22nd November at 8pm on Channel 4

It's the most joyful show on television and this week Ashley Banjo matches 44-year-old kickboxing car sales exec Nigel from Bournemouth, with Brighton-based PE teacher Emma.

With both of them fed up of being alone without a plus one, Ashley choreographs a romantic and sensual dance with no hiding places.

Also entrusting Ashley with their dating destinies are 23-year-old Toby and 25-year-old executive Courtney. Toby has been unlucky in love and has been hurt in the past and Courtney has recently moved to London from the suburbs of Kent, harbouring romantic dreams of bumping into her ideal partner on the tube.

They're both keen to find the one, so Ashley creates a fast-paced and energetic routine with elements of passion and intimacy.


4. Would I Lie to You?

Friday 22nd November at 9.30pm on BBC One

Postponed due to a Question Time special.

It's one of the best panel shows on telly and what makes Would I Lie to You? even better is the episode where Bob Mortimer is a guest and thankfully that episode is this week!

Also joining host Rob Brydon and team captains Lee Mack and David Mitchell this week, are Jay Blades, Sue Johnston and Alice Levine.

As ever they'll be revealing amazing stories about themselves. But are they telling the truth, or are they making it all up? It's up to the other team to decide!
