1. This Country

Monday 2nd April from 10am on BBC Three

All good things must come to an end, and this week This Country airs its final episode of the series. And although the BBC are yet to confirm a third series, I can't see any reason why they won't.

Kerry’s life-long ambition has been to work with her father, Martin and she's overjoyed when he asks her to help him store some wares in a lock-up garage.

Kurtan's working at the local bowls club giving him a new sense of purpose, but when Kerry entangles him in her new venture, things start to unravel and the Mucklowe family loyalties are put to the test.

When her mother dies, lonely girl Leila has to learn how to manage living on her own. She has a digital avatar, Shadowfax, and when she logs onto the virtual reality game Azana she feels truly alive. It's there that she meets the mysterious Mania aka Tess and discovers the secret paradise called Red Pill.

But Adrian, the leader of Red Pill, tells her she has to be invited to join and blasts Shadowfax out of the game. The next day, at Leila's workplace, Tess/Mania turns up - in real life and Leila wants to know why.

5. In The Long Run

If you have better self-control than me, and haven't already binge-watched all of In The Long Run, episode three continues this week on Sky One.

While Walter and his friends teach Valentine how to deal with the local police, Agnes and Kirsty make the terrible discovery that one of their elderly neighbours, Ernie Jenkins, has died alone in his flat undetected for a few days.

Matt tries to take matters into his own hands by calling Elliot Salad, the head of the network, to plead his case but ends up getting more than he bargained for.

Meanwhile, life goes on for the rest of the world. Sean and Beverly endure a disastrous casting session with Tim and Carol gets stoned with her maid.


7. Saturday Night Takeaway

Saturday 7th April at 7pm on ITV

After what must have been a very difficult show to present on his own, Declan Donnelly is back this week hosting this year's series finale of Saturday Night Takeaway on his own, supported by Stephen Mulhern and Scarlett Moffatt.

This year, the show will be coming live from Universal Orlando Resort in Florida for a spectacular end of the series finale. Dec will host and we'll see Ant & Dec on screen together again in the pre-recorded conclusion of Saturday Knight Takeaway.

One nation will be crowned in the final of Sofawatch and the Rembrandts will be performing a karaoke classic in Singalong Live. Stephen Mulhern takes his pop-up gameshow stateside in a very special edition of In For a Penny, and on top of all that, another lucky player gets the chance to Win the Ads.
