WHAT TO WATCH 6-12 March

This week's best telly includes sees the return of The Great Celebrity Bake Off, a special celebrity version of The Circle, THAT Oprah interview with Meghan and Harry and so much more!

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

1. The Vicar of Dibley: Inside Out

Saturday 6th March at 9pm on Gold

In the new two-hour celebration of The Vicar of Dibley, Dawn French and Richard Curtis take viewers on a trip down memory lane as they look back at their favourite Dibley moments and reveal what went on behind the scenes of the iconic sitcom.

For the first time, they will tell the definitive story of the making of the show and will be joined by a host of guest stars and celebrity fans including Kylie Minogue, Hugh Bonneville, and Joanna Lumley as well as writer Paul Mayhew-Archer, producer Jon Plowman, and James Fleet who played Hugo Horton.

Dawn French talks about the controversy the show caused and how that impacted her own life and talks of her huge pride in the part The Vicar of Dibley played in helping the cause of the ordination of women. And Richard Curtis talks about what inspired him to write a comedy all about a female vicar, and tells the story behind the creation of some of the shows most loved characters.


2. Bloodlands

Sunday 7th March at 9pm on BBC One

If you wrote BBC One's new Sunday night drama Bloodlands off after episode, I'd urge you to give it another chance and watch episode two until the very end... because chances are, you'll find it's not the drama you thought it was going to be!

Once you've recovered from THAT ending, then you can get stuck into this week's episode as James Nesbitt's character, Tom Brannick and Niamh McGovern launch a manhunt for Adam Corry who has disappeared in mysterious circumstances.

Elsewhere, Tori Matthews agreed to help Tom in the quest to identify Goliath, the legendary assassin who appears to be at large once again. But as pressure builds on the police, Tom must confront the possibility that Goliath may be one of his fellow officers.

3/4 Concludes next week

3. Oprah with Meghan and Harry

Monday 8th March at 9pm on ITV

Whatever your thoughts and feelings are, millions are likely to tune in to Oprah Winfrey's exclusive two-hour intimate conversation with Prince Harry and Meghan on ITV this coming Monday night, hours after the interview debuts in the US on CBS.

Winfrey will speak with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a Royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure.

Later, the two will be joined by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family.


4. Unforgotten

Tuesday 9th March at 9pm on ITV

Following the last-minute addition of Oprah with Meghan and Harry to ITV's schedule on Monday, this week's episode of Unforgotten will air a day later instead, and Cassie believes the only way to determine the truth is to interview the passengers of his car on the night in question.

When Cassie arrives in Cambridge, she interviews Liz who claims not to recognise either Walsh or Fogerty. In the Peak District, an agitated Fiona tells Sunny that she doesn’t recognise the victim but has a vague recollection of Fogerty, whilst interviews with Ram and Dean draw a similar blank.

This leaves the team with a lot of unanswered questions. They still don’t know if Walsh died on the night of 30th March and there is no concrete connection between him and the occupants of Fogerty’s car.

But when Boulting discovers that Walsh was given a police caution three weeks before his disappearance, could this provide a connection with any of the suspects? And as the team try to relocate the rest of the body, Cassie wants mobile phone data to see if any of the four have contacted each other.

5. The Great Celebrity Bake Off

Tuesday 9th March at 8pm on Channel 4

Over the next five weeks, 20 famous faces from the worlds of entertainment, sport, music and film, will roll up their sleeves and switch on their mixers to do their bit in the fight against cancer as they enter the Bake Off tent - where Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood will skilfully and meticulously judge each bake.

First to enter the tent are Star Wars actor Daisy Ridley, comedian Rob Beckett, pop star Alexandra Burke and comedian Tom Allen. They must first tackle millionaire shortbread in the Signature challenge before being tasked with making a fruity tart in the Technical.

And in the first ambitious Showstopper challenge of the series, the celebs must create their pet hates in cake form. But as ever, only one celebrity can be awarded the coveted Star Baker apron!

6. The Celebrity Circle

Tuesday 9th March at 9.15pm on Channel 4

After being filmed in September and the line-up being revealed in December, the time has finally come for The Celebrity Circle on Channel 4 as a cast of famous faces compete in a week-long celebrity edition of The Circle in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.

Filmed back in the autumn of 2020, in line with Covid-19 filming guidelines, for the first time ever, The Celebrity Circle will see a group of celebrities move into the most famous apartment block in the UK.

As the VIPs compete to be crowned The Circle’s most popular celebrity player, it turns out that just three celebrities will be playing as themselves; Denise Van Outen, Duncan James and Saffron Barker. The rest will all be catfishing as another celebrity identity altogether, hoping to convince the other players that they are the real deal.

Emma Willis returns as host, delivering the players some surprise alerts along the way, and comedian Sophie Willan resumes her role as the unmistakable voiceover of each episode.
