You're Back In The Room

There's lots of debate on social media as to whether the contestants involved in this comedy gameshow are actually hypnotised or just acting (for the record, we think people may be under-estimating the power hypnotism can have over certain individuals). Either way, with 4 million viewers, this looks to be a hit new format. This week the giggles include the team trying to paint some pictures. Messy stuff. ITV, 8:25pm. Guide

Also new: Catherine Tate and Russell Brand are on The Jonathan Ross Show. Repeats include Lee Mack Live. Schedule
