TV Times tops picks for tonight

What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight the best shows on Saturday 13th January

Through the Keyhole, 9.30pm, ITV

Since its revival five years ago, presenter Keith Lemon has made the celebrity house-snooping panel show his own with his larger-than-life persona and bawdy gags. But just like the long-running original, it’s not who hosts that compels you to keep watching… it’s the frequently opulent, often eccentric homes the mystery celebrities live in. After a Christmas special to open the series, tonight’s episode has a healthy amount of both, as Keith takes a cheeky peek inside famous people’s pads in Los Angeles, Majorca and north London. Then it’s down to Tipping Point host Ben Shephard, the Saturdays’ Frankie Bridge and presenter Jonathan Ross to try to guess who lives in them. Perfect Saturday evening fun. Rating: ****

Hard Sun, 9.35pm, BBC1

Hard Sun continues

At the end of last week’s thrilling first episode of the pre-apocalyptic thriller, cop Renko (Agyness Deyn, impressive in her TV debut) was poised to break the story about the imminent end of the world. Tonight we’re given a taste of what might start happening when the news gets out, as an estranged dad who has heard about the Hard Sun conspiracy theory abducts his kids and threatens to kill them, their mum and himself… Rating: ****

The Voice UK, 8.00pm, ITV

No offence to Gavin Rossdale, but we’re loving Olly Murs as a coach this year. Tonight the blind auditions continue, with Olly and his fellow coaches Jennifer Hudson, will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones listening intently for that special someone who’ll impress them enough to turn their chair. And as in our favourite Essex boy’s number one hit, Olly’s ‘Heart Skips a Beat’ this week, when he’s apparently left ‘mesmerised’ by one singer. Could Olly have the winner on his team? Rating: ****

More previews tomorrow
