  • Here is this week’s TOVS TV Times

    Up TONIGHT - a brand new series of The Crystal Maze: Celebrity Special at 9pm on ITV. Maze Master Richard Ayoade guides Olympic legends Kelly Holmes and Greg Rutherford, grime MC Big Narstie, actress Jorgie Porter and internet superstar Alfie Deyes through the Aztec, Medieval, Industrial and Futuristic zones. We can’t wait!

    At the same time the fantastic Cruising with Jane McDonald is over on Channel 5. The presenter takes on Australia and New Zealand, beginning her adventures in Sydney, where she experiences the highlights on an open top bus tour. Another new series!

    SATURDAY is the Trooping of the Colour live on BBC One from 10.30am. After Harry and Meghan’s splendid if – by royal standards anyway – unorthodox wedding, it’s time for a traditional and formal event that the Windsors are very familiar with: the spectacle and pageantry that mark the Queen’s official birthday.

    Finally on SUNDAY some of our freelancers are at Old Trafford, Manchester for Soccer Aid for one of the biggest fundraising events in sport.

    The biennial match, which has run since 2006, sees an England team take on the Rest of the World, with both squads comprised of a mixture of celebrities and footballing and sporting greats, all in the name of UNICEF children’s charity. The full match and build up will be broadcast live from 6.30pm on ITV.
