Another bunch of super-fit athletes take on the Ninja Warrior UK obstacle course, the toughest in the country.

Watch out for DJs Rickie Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odoom, and Love Island star and professional surfer Laura Crane, plus last year’s finalist Sam West, who built a ninja course in his garden!

As TV Times Highlights Editor I get to hear about all the latest TV shows coming soon. Here at TVT HQ we are in the privileged position of selecting the best programmes from across all the channels and streaming platforms. Our mission is to make it easier for our readers to decide what to watch - and give them lots of choice of genres - all the latest shows, plus some nostalgic choices we call hidden gems, too. My career began with a postgraduate degree in periodical journalism (ahem, yes old school!) in 1991 and I’ve worked in TV media since 2000.
