With the kingdom on the brink of disaster, the queen asks for help from warrior, Jason, with his time to fulfil his destiny finally arriving. The likes of Jack Donnelly star in the show which will air this Saturday on BBC One at 8:30pm.

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!: A fresh batch of famous faces wave goodbye to their lives of luxury and set up camp in the Australian wilderness battling bugs and Bushtucker Trials, rations and rain, heat and hunger, all in the name of entertainment. There is the likes of Corrie favourite Craig Charles (Lloyd Mullaney), TOWIE’s Gemma Collins, model and singer Nadia Forde, ‘Allo ‘Allo! star Vicki Michelle, and rapper Tinchy Stryder all entering the camp.

Some Girls: Back for its third season the astoundingly frank and funny show about 4 college girls is set carry on its successful streak.
