Telly highlights of the week



It was the week when Selasi left the Bake Off (sob!) and literally everything crashed into everything else on Emmerdale (argh!). 




Tate’s Not Bovvered

You know when someone’s dad tries to make a joke to impress their kid’s friends, but they get it wrong and everyone suddenly wants to die? This is that, but with Catherine Tate, on BBC Breakfast.


Going Ape
