The Job Lot - Series 1

The new series of this job centre based sitcom is coming soon, with the show switching channels (it's moving from ITV1 to ITV2). The network is giving any viewers that missed the first series in April 2013 a chance to catch-up, with two episodes scheduled each Tuesday across the next three weeks. Trish (Sarah Hadland) and Karl (Russell Tovey) are the main focus, but it's characters like the gloriously grumpy Angela (Jo Enright) who are the most memorable. More info in our guide. ITV2, 11pm.

Repeats include panel shows like 8 Out Of 10 Cats. Schedule
