TV Times picks for tonight

What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight three of the best shows on telly tonight for Monday 27th November

Would I Lie to You?, 8.30pm, BBC1

How glad we are to have this hilariously silly parlour game back on the telly – if only it were longer than half an hour! Tonight’s guests include Countryfile’s Anita Rani, who claims a discovery in her new home caused the whole street to be evacuated, and actor Sheila Hancock, who has a radical solution to stop her forgetting her keys. As always, though, it’s the quick-fire quips between the regulars that have us in stitches, and Lee Mack’s story of amateur taxidermy leaves David Mitchell crying with laughter. But is it true that Lee made a stuffed mouse on a skateboard with his own fair hands? Surely not?! Stephen Mangan and Apple Tree Yard star Mark Bonnar round off the tall-tale-tellers. Rating: ****

Supershoppers, 8.30pm, C4

The savvy consumer series returns with a new list of shopping dos and don’ts. Anna Richardson and new co-presenter Sabrina Grant’s first investigation is into supermarket own-brand ranges. Are their cheap value meals any different to the pricier alternatives? Surely they can’t be exactly the same just with different packaging, can they? Beauty wipes also get the ‘do you get what you pay for?’ test when Anna and Sabrina compare budget ones with ‘luxury’ versions. Rating: ***

Employable Me, 9.00pm, BBC2

This inspiring series returns, following a group of disabled people who are determined to find a job. This first episode focuses on 22-year-old Ryan (pictured), who suffers from Tourette’s, and Andy, 52, who had a life-changing stroke which left him partially paralysed and struggling to speak. After some guidance and help from a psychologist and recruitment specialists, it’s then up to Ryan and Andy to get out there and find employment. Their resourcefulness, resilience and determination are amazing, but sadly they both have such mountains to climb to get employers to see past their disabilities. Rating: ****

More previews tomorrow.
