Telly highlights of the week

06/01/2017TV

From clangers on Pointless to the most smackable contestants in CBB history, 2017 has got off to a magnificently entertaining start…

We’ll always have Paris (Pointless)

Look, we know she’s on telly and on the spot and probably had a brain-lapse. But… wow. Her friend’s face says it all.

Pointless is available to watch on Catch Up in BBC iPlayer

Sherlock now, and amid all the shocks and surprises, there was one bit that made us squeal like embarrassing infants. And that was Mycroft putting in a phone call to the third, as-yet-unseen, Holmes brother…

There’s irreverent comedy, and there’s this sketch from BBC series Revolting, which gave a “Real Housewives” spin on suicide bombers. The social media response was about as calm and reasonable as you might expect.

Our Speidi sense is tingling (Celebrity Big Brother)

Reality show regulars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag returned to Celebrity Big Brother, and their every moment on screen will make any logical person screw their face up in disapproval. Bonus points if you can tolerate Spencer’s “better than ever” pronouncement at the 0:08 mark without screaming at the telly.

Celebrity Big Brother is available to watch on Catch Up in Channel 5

 

An Oddie encounter

On the news, Bill Oddie was brought on defend the honour of evil chickens, and he wasn’t impressed.

 

Danny Dyer in the gaff (Lip Sync Battle)
