WHAT TO WATCH 27 May - 2 June

This week's best telly sees Britain's Got Talent go live as it prepares to crown its latest winner and the world of soaps gather for The British Soap Awards. There's also more great comedy and more great drama.

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

1. Britain's Got Talent

Monday 27th - Friday 31st May at 7:30pm and Sunday 2nd June at 7:30pm on ITV

Another year, another Britain's Got Talent winner. But who out of the remaining 40 acts will follow in the footsteps of 2018 winner Lost Voice Guy?

Every night this week, eight acts will take to the stage, performing for a chance to win £250,000 and a spot on the bill for this year’s Royal Variety Performance. Ant and Dec are reunited in their first live telly gig since March 2018 and Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams are all back to offer their critique on the performances.

In each result show, two acts will go through to the Sunday's live final and there'll be a host of guest performers taking to the BGT stage as the semi-finalists wait to find out if they are one step closer to being crowned winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2019.


2. Years and Years

Tuesday 28th May at 9pm on BBC One

As Russell T Davies' new series continues, Stephen and Celeste try to rebuild their shattered lives and Daniel's world turns to terror when Viktor has to flee from Kiev.

Daniel uses his birthday party at Muriel’s to reveal his dangerous plan to family and friends, whilst Rosie loses her job and Edith’s former life as an activist calls her back into action on a secret mission.

The Lyons children are united when they discover that their long-absent father, Vincent, has died and on the day of the General Election that sees Viv Rook rise to power, they attend the funeral and face many home truths.

Oh and expect a cameo from Lee from Steps as he teaches Viv Rook the Tragedy dance.


3. The Virtues

Wednesday 29th May at 9pm on Channel 4

Shane Meadows' hard-hitting new drama The Virtues continues this week as Joseph tries to come to terms with his past.

In this penultimate episode, he faces tough consequences after revisiting a place he has confused and fractured memories of, and there's a clear spark between Joseph and Dinah.

And Dinah is inspired to address some painful memories of her own.


4. Mum

Wednesday 29th May at 10pm on BBC Two

The rather brilliant Mum continues this week for those who haven't already gorged on every episode of the third and final series on BBC iPlayer.

This time around, Cathy and family decamp to the English countryside to celebrate Derek’s birthday with each episode observing a different day of the week.

This week it's Wednesday and Jason's concerned as Cathy and Michael get ready to go for a walk in the countryside.


5. Good Omens

Friday 31st May on Amazon Prime Video

They are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon, but have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he's meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it's too late.
