Interesting Eggheads Jeremy Vine is hosting ‘Quiz Master’, which will surely see Chasers and Eggheads pitted against each other.

ITV will show the final cookery series by the late Gary Rhodes in the 1st quarter of 2020. It's called Rhodes Across the Middle East. It's written in the daytime section on page 32. I will assume here that this series will receive high numbers of viewers from fans on ITV's main channel & ITV Hub who had loved his work as a chef over the years. It's also a nice way of sending a fitting tribute to him after his tragic passing earlier this year. R.I.P. Gary Sad

I think this was published before he died. He was in the middle of recording it so I don't know if it'll see the light of day. If his family approve of showing it, then it depends how much was already recorded I guess.

Wasn't Epic Gameshow supposed to air this year - I'm sure they've filmed some Christmas specials of one or two of the shows too which were surely intended to air this Christmas rather than next.

Metro would be a strong regional series and Dr Ranj a strong daytime series - neither are that exciting when it comes to primetime TV.


I think ITV know better than to move Love Island - it's target audience is already watching it on ITV2. I'm surprised though they've not introduced a late night repeat on ITV - indeed not sure it even gets a narrative repeat on ITV2 now. They stopped trying to edit it for a daytime rerun a couple of years ago.
It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.

You do realise most of the Eggheads and Chasers have been on most of the shows? It seems like a missed opportunity to not include some of them but you think they’d say something about it in the blurb if it was the case. Again I can’t see ITV dedicating a 90 minute special to this unless there was some representation from these two shows.

They were going to start with the Xmas special but realised that would be a bit odd so will start with the regular episodes next year and the Xmas special will air this time next year.
