WHAT TO WATCH 22-28 January

This week’s best telly includes the 23rd National Television Awards along with a host of shows that will be hoping to make next year’s shortlist.

Here are the 7 shows you have to watch this week...


1. First Dates Hotel

Monday 22nd January at 10pm on Channel 4

I’m a huge fan of First Dates, and have been since the very first series and the second series of First Dates Hotel has breathed new life into the solid dating format as British singletons search for a slice of amore in the Italian sun.


This week, with his shades, six-pack and stylish man-bag, 36-year-old Darill is the epitome of 'daddy cool’ and after spending a few days enjoying the poolside views his big day arrives: a date with 26-year-old single mum Millie. They seem well matched but there are certain things you shouldn't say on a date.
