We’ve got games

The Masked Singer UK S2

This is the UK version of the fun game show in which celebrities disguise themselves in extravagant costumes while a panel of judges try to guess who they are based on their singing voices and performance style. Now it’s BAFTA award-winning comedian Mo Gilligan’s turn to take a judge’s chair and try to figure out who’s under the giant bobblehead, with host Joel Dommett co-ordinating the chaos, and singer Rita Ora and TV presenters Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross returning to judge, who’s hiding under 12 new costumes.

Total Wipeout: Freddie & Paddy Takeover S1

The absurd obstacle course series is here with a look back at some best-ever episodes. Bants in their pants boys Freddie Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness provide riotous commentary (replacing Richard Hammond’s original voiceover track) to some of the most memorable Total Wipeout (2009-2012) episodes and humiliation action replays. It’s fairly clean, so if you have kids who’ve never seen regular, non-athletic people getting splatted like bugs and falling in the water on this tricky giant game set, sit them down for a show.

Pointless S24

Quiz show co-presented by Alexander Armstrong and host Richard Osman. 4 teams of 2 contestants each go on a wild ride in a variety of quiz games in which they must score as few points as possible by mining the depths of their general knowledge to come up with the answers that no one else can think of. All questions used on the show are factual in nature and are asked of a panel of 100 individuals in a pre-conducted public survey.

But when 9 people in 1 room all believe that they’re “the Beyoncé”, things are going to get loud.
