Our picks of top TV this week from Stacey Solomons new series to a terrifying thriller

From hilarious impressions to Stacey Solomon helping us declutter our homes, there's a ton of great new shows on TV this week.

Jason Watkins is back on screens in new suspense filled drama The Catch and Friday Night favourite and star of The Inbetweeners Simon Bird is also bringing the laughs in his new sitcom Everyone Else Burns.

So for all your telly watching, sit back and enjoy our break down of all the best new shows you won't want to miss this week.

MONDAY

Everyone Else Burns, 10pm, Channel 4

Inbetweeners and Friday Night Dinner star Simon Bird returns for a new comedy set in a fictional puritanical Christian community near Manchester. Sporting a very quirky haircut, Bird plays David who, with his wife and two children, is devoted to preparing for Armageddon and avoiding eternal damnation – though unsurprisingly, earthly temptations often get in the way. The series opens with a double bill, and Kate O’Flynn and Ghosts’ Lolly Adefope also star.

Bridge Of Lies, 4:30pm,BBC One

While teams of celebrities have a go on Saturday night, it’s now time for a new batch of regular contestants to take on the nail-biting bridge – and formidable host Ross Kemp – in a new series of the daytime quiz. It’s like Squid Game without the grisly deaths as teams compete for cash by crossing a bridge made up of stepping stones – all they have to do is step on the truths and avoid the lies. Sounds simple enough, but it can be extremely tense stuff (and sometimes very funny, too), as Ross looms over the players as they make their choices.

SAS: Who Dares Wins, 9pm, Channel 4

The gruelling realty show heads to North Vietnam for its toughest challenge yet in the deepest, darkest most unforgiving jungle in the world. Old hand Mark ‘Billy’ Billigham, who spent much of his military career serving in the jungle, takes over as chief instructor for the news series. He leads 20 ordinary men and women (we’ll see the celeb version return later this year) through the punishing SAS selection process. “I’m looking forward to challenging and encouraging the new recruits,” says Billy. “However, I will not be accepting any excuses – this will be the toughest course to date!” Gulp!

WEDNESDAY

Sort Your Life Out, 8.00pm, BBC One

Talented tidier Stacey Solomon and her expert team (organiser Dilly, carpenter Rob and cleaner Iwan) are back for a new series, spending a week helping ordinary families to transform their messy homes. The series begins with the Harris-Hawley family in Richmond in London, where childhood sweethearts Dan and Char, and their two daughters Mia and Cece, discover they not only have they hoarded over 1000 toys, but they have so many bottles of ketchup they’d need to buy a chip shop to ever get through it!

The Catch, 9pm, Channel 5

Line of Duty star Jason Watkins plays a family man who sees his life spiralling out of control in this new four-part psychological thriller. Ed Collier is a fisherman determined to keep his family together who is threatened by the arrival of his daughter’s rich new boyfriend Ryan (Aneurin Barnard). Ed has already lost a son, Josh, who died, and he soon finds his world under threat as he attempts to keep his daughter close and prevent secrets from his own past from being exposed.

Amanda Owen’s Extraordinary Lives, 9pm, More4

Yorkshire shepherdess and mum of nine Amanda Owen is back for a new TV series in which she travels the UK to discover other farmers’ inspirational and often moving stories. With Brexit, COVID and climate change all affecting the industry, Amanda visits six very different farms to find out what life is like to be a farmer in 2023. For some, it’s the continuation of a generations-long family business, while others are realising their life-long dream.

THURSDAY

Deep Fake Neighbour Wars, Streaming on ITVX

You won’t believe your eyes when this new comedy show starts streaming on ITVX this week – and neither should you! The celebrity impressions series uses the latest ‘deep fake’ technology, with computer generated faces of megastars superimposed over actors. Playing out like reality TV documentary, we’ll see the likes of Idris Elba and Kim Kardashian argue over the use of their communal garden, while Greta Thunberg goes to war over Ariana Grande’s unseasonal Christmas lights. Brilliantly silly fun.

FRIDAY

Shrinking, Streaming on Apple TV+

We wait years for Harrison Ford to star in a TV series… and then two shows come along at once. While Paramount TV+ viewers can enjoy him in the Yellowstone spin-off series 1923, Harrison also pops up in Apple TV+ comedy drama series Shrinking as the boss of psychiatrist Jimmy Laird (played by Jason Segel). Following the death of his wife, Jimmy is struggling to cope with being a dad to his teenage daughter, and he finally snaps and decides to tell his patients exactly what he thinks of them and their problems, even though it goes against his training.
