Yes, yes, we know it’s boiling outside and you’re more likely to be cooking chicken on a BBQ than sitting in front of the telly, BUT – there’s still a lot of excellent shows on the box this weekend, should you choose to take a break from the sun.
Here’s a few of our favourites…
1. Wimbledon, Ladies’ final, Saturday, 1.30pm, BBC1, Men’s final, Sunday, 12.50pm, BBC1
Strawberries and cream at the ready, the biggest tennis tournament in the world draws to a close this weekend. May the best man and woman win!
2. Casualty, Saturday, 9.10pm, BBC1
Tom struggles to keep his emotions in check after last week’s shocking slap and ends up lashing out at Robyn and Tess. Oh dear. Meanwhile Fletch is after a promotion but suffers an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction ahead of his interview.
3. All Star Mr and Mrs, Sunday, 8pm, ITV
Lovely Sally Lindsay, she of Corrie and Loose Women fame, teams up with her hubby Steve White, to see how well they know each other in a bid to win big for charity. It’s moved from its regular Wednesday slot, so be sure not to miss it.
4. Mamma Mia, Sunday, 9pm, ITV
Now here’s a feel good film if ever we saw one. The hit musical, based on the songs of Abba, marks the perfect end to a stunning summer weekend. All together now: ‘I’ve been cheated by you….’
5. Luther, Sunday, 10.25pm, BB1
For those who missed it on Tuesday, here’s another chance to catch the first episode in the new series. Be warned – it’s scary stuff, and not even the sight of the gorgeous Idris Elba will help you sleep better after watching it. Worth it though.
