PICKS OF THE WEEKEND: 31 OCT-01 NOV

What to watch this weekend



Strictly Come Dancing

Saturday, 7:15pm, BBC One

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present as the 12 couples return to the Strictly Ballroom for an epic night of dance. The stakes could not be higher because not only do the Strictly stars have to impress the judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse, but they also have to impress the viewers at home, who get the chance to vote for their favourites for the very first time this series.


The Voice: The Semi-Finalists

Saturday, 9pm, ITV

Emma Willis presents a profile of this year's eight semi-finalists, ahead of the show's imminent return following a lockdown-enforced delay. Emma takes a look back at the performances of these eight contestants over the earlier rounds of this year's show, from their first Blind Audition to their Knockout Performance. Plus, the results of the Lifeline Act public vote, which will see a ninth act chosen by viewers to return to the show.


Spitting Image US Election Special (Part One)

Saturday, 10pm, ITV

The weekly puppet-based sketch show takes on the US presidential elections, with characters from both sides of the Atlantic in the firing line.


5 Gold Rings

Sunday, 6pm, ITV

Simon Gregson (Corrie's Steve McDonald) and Matthew Wolfenden (Emmerdale's David Metcalfe) play to win more than £50,000 for their teammates in the game show hosted by Phillip Schofield. The soap stars answer visual questions by placing rings on an LED floor in five increasingly difficult stages.
