WHAT TO WATCH 22-28 April

This week's telly includes a lot of great comedy, the final episode of The Bay and the penultimate episode of Line of Duty.

Here are 7 shows you can’t miss this week...

1. Not Going Out

Monday 22nd April at 9pm on BBC One

It's the longest-running sitcom on air and Lee Mack's Not Going Out is still as brilliant as ever!

This week, Lee is outraged that the twins have started sex education at school. And he resolves to teach them everything he knows about the facts of life before Miss Anstis corrupts them.


2. Ghosts

Monday 22nd April at 9:30pm on BBC One

Still recovering from her near-fatal accident, Alison finds herself hounded by the ghostly gaggle, who now realise that she can both see and hear them.

Alison tries to ignore their existence after Mike assures her that these ‘visions’ are exactly the sort of side effect her doctors warned her about. However this tactic only exacerbates the problem, as the long-dead army captain puts the ghosts onto a war footing.

Meanwhile Mike’s attempts to turn the old house into a home leads to a DIY disaster, saddling Lady Button with an ill-suited roommate. And the ghosts are introduced to the internet, allowing Julian to learn about his questionable legacy.


3. Back to Life

Monday 22nd April at 10:30pm on BBC One

If unlike me you haven't binged on all six episodes on BBC iPlayer, Daisy Haggard's fantastic series Back to Life continues in its weekly slot on BBC One.

In this week's episode, the community makes it very clear that Miri is not welcome but she is undeterred as she prepares for her first day of work at Nathan’s Fish & Chip shop, intent on making a success of her fresh start. But how will the locals react to her new role at the already unpopular shop?

Meanwhile, Miri’s childhood best-friend Mandy is eager to rebuild their old friendship. But it might be harder than she thinks to win back Miri, who is hurt by how her ex-best friend acted in the aftermath of that terrible night, all those years ago.


4. The Bay

Wednesday 24th April at 9pm on ITV

It's a shame that The Bay has had to compete with Line of Duty for "the drama everyone is talking about" because for the last five weeks the series has consistently entertained the millions who have been watching the drama which this week comes to a gripping end.

What really did happen to Dylan? Who was there when he died? And is there any truth to Holly's confession that she killed her brother?


5. Lee and Dean

Thursday 25th April at 10pm on Channel 4

It's been available as a boxset since the first episode aired, but if you're watching Lee and Dean once a week, then this week's episode is not to be missed!

Sarah Beeny guest stars as herself as the boys are nominated for an award at a prestigious trade show. At the event, both Lee and Dean are made offers they can't refuse... but Dean's opportunity doesn't go quite to plan.

Meanwhile, Mrs Bryce-D'Souza receives some shocking news, Lee sees something he wishes he hadn't and Little Dean has a night he'd like to forget.


6. In For a Penny

Saturday 27th April at 7:30pm on ITV

It's hard to believe that In For a Penny, Stephen Mulhern's small segment from Saturday Night Takeaway, which he often joked would one day get its own series, has done exactly that!

Stephen Mulhern is at his funniest when interacting with the general public which is why he's such a great fit for this show which challenges them to turn their pennies into pounds. And the good thing is, it can be played from anywhere in the country.

In this week's show, Stephen heads to Bournemouth to challenge unsuspecting shoppers to brave buckets of cold water in Whatever The Weather, play Pump It Up at the petrol court, draw a host of animals in Pablo Pet-Casso and to pin their hopes on their mums in Mums The World.


7. Line of Duty

Sunday 28th April at 9pm on BBC One

In the penultimate episode of Line of Duty, the hunt for ‘H’ intensifies as Steve and Kate wonder whether Hastings is guarding a dark secret.
