Olly Murs

Eek! The cheesy but breezy chatshow continues with a moose loose aboot Mrs Broon's hoose, and that poor wee rodent will likely regret seeking refuge up Grandad's trouser leg. Among the celeb guests watching where they step are Jane McDonald, Emily Atack and Olly Murs.

It's pretty much a Bake Off special this week as Ross quizzes judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith and presenter Noel Fielding about the current series of the cookery show. OK, so there's no Sandi Toksvig, but comedy awaits courtesy of Mo Gilligan and music is supplied by Olly Murs.

The big Saturday nights in are back, with the return of Michael McIntyre's Big Show to the BBC. Considered one of Britain's best stand-up comedians, McIntyre certainly knows how to get a crowd.

The refreshingly naive extravaganza returns, with its pranks and games expanded to the point that star turns from Ellie Goulding and the cast of School Of Rock feel like needless intrusions. McIntyre ribbing a teen about his posey Instagrams, or texting Olly Murs's contacts, is happy fun, devoid of cynicism and enhanced by the host's improv skills. Plus, the finale - with a fireman singing a Les Mis number - is worth 10 X Factors.

Charlie Brooker: why tug our forelocks to Richard III?

For somebody who did less for Britain than, say, Olly Murs, we're making a dreadful fuss of our late monarch.

Radio Times review

Certain glossy magazines just can't stop speculating about Jennifer Aniston's love life. Oh, poor Jen, they wonder, will she ever find happiness after Brad Pitt? Is she still engaged to Justin Theroux? When are they going to marry? Is he scared of commitment? Is this really anyone's business?

So how far will Graham Norton go tonight when Aniston perches on the sofa with Jason Bateman to discuss their new film, Horrible Bosses 2? The frenzy that constantly surrounds Aniston's romantic life has always fogged the fact that she's an estimable light comic actress. Sadly, she's made some rubbish films since Friends ended, and judging by its trailer, Horrible Bosses 2 won't be a twinkling diamond on her CV.

Making a return visit is the mighty Dame Judi Dench, who'll be talking about her book, Behind the Scenes, and Olly Murs will sing his new single.

Diamond geezer Olly Murs warms things up in the studio tonight when he pops in to give a live performance of Dear Darlin' for the ever-appreciative Carr. Also venturing into the chatty zone are former Corrie and jungle celeb Helen Flanagan, along with actors Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong - two of a handful of stars from The Hangover Part III who are doing the chat show rounds tonight - check out Graham Norton (BBC1, 10.35pm) for the biggies.

Dame Judi Dench was a Norton guest only last October when she appeared alongside her Skyfall pals Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem. But who cares? She's lovely and she's a national treasure and obviously we just can't get enough of her because she's back tonight.

Dame Judi shares the sofa with a glittery line-up - Mila Kunis and James Franco, in town to promote their new film, Oz the Great and Powerful, and Jude Law, starring with Rooney Mara in the movie Side Effects. Music comes courtesy of Olly Murs.
