It’s the Board of Excitement Mother’s Day SPECIAL! I say special, it’s exactly the same as all the other ones. Still, this one comes with extra freaking-out-American-ness, as they celebrate their Mother’s Day on a different day because they have to be different.
- The Bother Series of Poker Round Six - Mother’s Day SPECIAL! I say special, it’s exactly the same as all the other ones. £5.50 to enter, open to all regardless of ability or league ambition. We’re halfway after this game! (8pm, Sunday, Pokerstars)
- Don’t Stop Me Now – aka 101 Ways To Leave a Talent Show (joke copyright Buzzerblog) (8pm, Sunday, Sky One)
- Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Mother’s Day SPECIAL! I say special, it’s exactly the same as all the other ones. Steve Pemberton, Anthony Cotton and Samantha Womack team up with their mums to win lots of money for charity, and hopefully a viewer at home. (8:30pm, Sunday, ITV1)
- Only Connect Sport Relief Special – it’s a shame Sport Relief doesn’t really have a “thing” like Pudsey’s eyepatch or Comic Relief’s red noses. Maybe Victoria Coren will do the missing vowels round whilst running a mile. But one thing YOU won’t be running a mile from, right, are these celebrities! The teams are the Cutters (Nick Hornby, Mark Gatiss, Samira Ahmed) and the Backhanders (Ian Hislop, Stephen Mangan and Allison Pearson). (8:30pm, Monday, BBC4)
- Four Rooms – Last year’s surprise hit is BACK! (8pm, Wednesday, C4)

- The Apprentice - This has started a little bit earlier this year. Exciting. (9pm, Wednesday, BBC1)
- Sport Relief – Please give generously. (Basically all day, BBC)
- Winter Wipeout Celebrity Special – why they’re showing this now and not before the rugby and saving Pointless Celebs for a full run I do not know. (6pm, Saturday, BBC1)
- The Voice UK - It’s been a long build up, but it’s finally here. (7pm, Saturday, BBC1)
- Britain’s Got Talent - It’s the Saturday night TV clash we’ve all been waiting for. (8pm, Saturday, ITV1)
- The Million Pound Drop – Live! Now at one hour and forty five minutes, The Drop returns next weekend on Saturday and Sunday before going back to trad. Friday and Saturday rotation. This Saturday (the day) two of The Saturdays (the band) will be playing for charity. Apparently this series will be featuring some exciting twists – fingers crossed for a shoehorned in prisoner’s dilemma element!!!! (9:20pm, Saturday, C4)
We might try and watch Elton vs Simon – The Liveshow on Pro Sieben next Saturday as well. It probably won’t last six hours like Schlag den Raab did last night.
