WHAT TO WATCH 20-26 November

This week's best telly includes a front-row seat at an Adele concert, the return of I'm A Celeb as well as the Bake Off final and so much more!

Here are 7 TV shows you can't miss this week...

1. Strictly Come Dancing

Saturday 20th at 6.35pm and Sunday 21st November at 7.15pm on BBC One

Usually, this weekend would be when the celebs head to Blackpool to dance in the world-famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom. Instead, everyone's staying in Elstree and delivering us what promises to be a spectacular Musicals Week!

But sadly that's not the only change, as, for the first time ever in the show's 17-year history, Craig Revel-Horwood has been forced to miss Strictly after testing positive for Covid-19. All being well, he'll be back next week. He'll be replaced by multi-award winning singer and actor Cynthia Erivo for one week only as a guest judge.

The show opens with an incredible Cabaret-inspired routine from Strictly's professional dancers before the seven remaining couples take to the Ballroom floor live with more incredible routines from some of the most loved musicals of all time.

Sunday nights results show will open with a fantastic performance from Strictly's professional dancers to Defying Gravity, from the world smash-hit musical Wicked as well as a special music performance from the stars of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

As always, the curtain will come down for one couple, as the two with the lowest combined score will face each other in the Dance Off. It’s never an easy decision for the Judges, but who will get another encore in the competition?

Tuesday 23rd November at 8pm on Channel 4

Twelve bakers started the competition, but after nine weeks only one can be crowned the winner of The Great British Bake Off 2021, with Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood having the unenviable task of choosing between Chief Engineer Giuseppe, originally from Italy who now lives in Bristol, Client Relationship Manager Crystelle, born in northwest London to Kenyan born, Portuguese-Goan parent and Sales Manager Chigs from Leicestershire, who taught himself how to break during the first lockdown of 2020!

For the three remaining bakers, the stakes couldn't be higher, as Paul and Prue set three challenges that will test every aspect of their baking skills starting with a classic Signature, where they have the chance to show if they can create a carrot cake worthy of winning.

7. Womanhood

Friday 26th November at 9pm on BBC One

In this new one-off programme, six famous women spanning different age ranges, backgrounds and experiences come together in Leeds to tackle some of the most hotly contested issues.

Broadcaster Kirsty Wark is joined by dancer Shirley Ballas, writer Chidera Eggerue, businesswoman Jacqueline Gold, singer Sinitta Malone and comedian Suzi Ruffell. Together, they want to explore the role of women and their place in society.

They share their personal experiences and meet people who challenge their views on consent, coercive control, cosmetic surgery, women’s safety on the streets, trans rights, sex work and childcare.

And with women making their voices heard and making headline news, urgent questions have been raised about what it is to be a woman at home, at work and in love. Over 50 years ago, the Equal Pay Act and the Women’s Liberation movement promised change. But is life better or worse for women today?
