TV round-up: 18/07/14 – 24/07/14


With England experiencing some unusual heat, many of us may be revelling in this rare state. However, the rest of us can’t handle the heat and would rather enjoy a good TV show with an ice-cold water. So here it is; a condensed list of the best TV over the next week to escape the vast warmth and avoid the sweat.

Celebrity MasterChef: The thirteenth and final episode of this Celebrity MasterChef season will take place later today. In the episode, the three finalists will enter the kitchen of Francesco Mazzei, who will support them in cooking for some Italian cookery experts. The contestants will then prepare a three-course meal for both Gregg Wallace and John Torode before the winner is crowned. Watch it tonight on BBC One at 8.30PM.

Dragons’ Den: The whopping twelfth season of Dragons’ Den arrives this weekend, seeing the return of Duncan Bannatyne, Deborah Meaden, Peter Jones, Kelly Hoppen and Piers Linney. With Bannatyne recently revealing that this season is to be his last, the new season is likely to be a stand-out one. The first episode shows the Den see something never before proposed as well as Meaden going for something rather unusual. Tune in this Sunday, on BBC Two at 8.30PM to see whether anyone manages to get a precious investment.

Nikita: The final season of the crime drama arrives this coming Monday. The TV show is based on an assassin who attempts to destroy the secret organisation that trained her. The first episode sees Nikita returning to the US in order to prove that she did not assassinate the president, finding help along the way in the form of a questioning reporter. Catch it on Sky Living this Monday at 9PM.
