the joy of spring!

NEW! ALAN TITCHMARSH: SPRING INTO SUMMER Easter Monday, 8pm (not Wales) ITV Factual Q What can you tell us about your new nine-part series? A It’s a half-hour show at 8pm on Mondays between the Corrie episodes. I’m hoping that it will give people a shot in the arm and take them out of themselves. If you don’t have a bit of countryside you can go into, we’ll bring it to you. It’s an outdoors programme, not a gardening programme, but gardening will be part of it.

It’s the final! MASTERCHEF Easter Monday, Thursday & Friday, times vary BBC1 Cookery Following weeks of culinary challenges, the hunt for the UK’s top amateur chef reaches its roller-coaster conclusion this week. The first test for the remaining five is a lunchtime service involving a five-course meal for 20 members of the hospitality sector who have been delivering meals to those most in need during lockdown. As five becomes three, it’s time for the toughest test of the series – The Chef’s Table. And it couldn’t be more daunting with Michel Roux Jr hosting things at Le Gavroche, where the cooks must master some of his most famous dishes and serve them to the likes of Monica Galetti and Michel’s daughter, Emily Roux. The pressure doesn’t ease up back in the MasterChef kitchen, as the finalists…
