What to watch this Easter weekend


Crack open the chocolate and treat yourself to loads of great TV shows and movies over the four-day Easter break

By Laura Rutkowski, Staff Writer

While you might not be spending this weekend as you had originally planned, there is plenty of top telly to keep you entertained. Peter Kay’s Car Share receives a special audio episode and The Nest reaches its chilling conclusion, with the last two episodes spread across consecutive nights.


Britain’s Got Talent returns for series 14, Killing Eve brings us a killer series 3 and Flack is back for series 2. Some other brilliant premieres include Quiz, about a Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? cheating scandal from 2001, and the Celebrity Special of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, with Charlotte Church, Richard Osman and John Barnes taking part. 

Films galore will keep the whole family happy, with titles including Paddington, Skyfall, Matilda and Yesterday, as well as three Indiana Jones movies. You’ve got plenty to be getting on with, so we’ll leave you to check out the television schedule for the next few days. See you on the other side – and happy watching!
