Bake Off: The Professionals — C4
In the capable hands of Liam Charles and new host Stacey Solomon, Bake Off: The Professionals returned to find Britain's best patisserie team. Battling it out to be crowned the winners, the teams transform everyday desserts and pastries into masterpieces. Breathtaking — and delicious — stuff.
Dragons’ Den — BBC1
Dragons' Den has hit season 19 but it shows no sign of getting tired. Host Evan Davies introduces the eager entrepreneurs ready to wow the team of experienced business leaders that make up the panel of Dragons. Will they convince them to invest or will they be heading home with their tails between their legs?
Gogglebox — C4
It shouldn't work — watching people watching TV is a strange concept. But somehow Gogglebox is a huge success and it just keeps getting better. We love watching our favourite armchair critics, like Jenny and Lee, or Giles and Mary, dissect the TV shows we've been watching.
MasterChef — BBC1
Presenters Gregg Wallace and John Torode put the contestants through their paces, challenging them to wow them with their culinary creations. As the amateur chefs whisk, grill, roast and bake up a storm in the kitchen, John and Gregg are on hand to give advice — and some constructive criticism, too.
RuPaul’s Drag Race UK — BBC3
After its huge success in the US, Drag Race made the trip across the pond and we're very pleased about it! Under the watchful eye of Mama Ru, the fabulous queens compete in a series of weekly challenges to show off their entertainment talents. It's a glittering showcase of the best drag talent in the country.
The Apprentice — BBC1
Boardroom battles and business battles make The Apprentice one of the most gripping reality shows on television. Lord Alan Sugar takes the reins while a band of enthusiastic wannabe business brains try their hardest to impress. It's sometimes cringey and often infuriating but it's always entertaining.
The Great British Bake Off — C4
Oh, how we love The Great British Bake Off. Who knew watching the country's best bakers get stressed over a bowl of custard or frazzled over a biscuit would be so gripping? Presenters Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding torment the poor contestants as judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith cast their appraising eyes over the creations and we all hold our breath waiting for the famous Hollywood handshake!
The Great British Sewing Bee — BBC1
New presenter Sara Pascoe took over the show this series, with judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young, and the entertainment value stayed high. The contestants never fail to astound us with their skills as they cut, stitch, pin and tuck the fabric and create amazing clothes from scratch. Inspirational, entertaining and eco-friendly too. What a combination.
