MONDAY

Uncle (BBC Three, 10pm)

NICK Helm stars in this dark comedy as Andy, a dissolute out-of-work musician. Andy’s life takes a dramatic turn when he’s blackmailed into looking after his nephew by his sister, but it’s inconvenient timing - Andy was planning to kill himself.

In the first episode, as Andy gets to grips with new responsibilities, he and nephew Errol wind up involved in a car crash, visit a gay club and learn life’s lessons the hard way.

TUESDAY

House Of Fools (BBC Two, 10pm)

VIC Reeves and Bob Mortimer star in their new sitcom, which is set in a fictional version of Bob’s home, where he lives with his Norwegian son Eric and, of course, Vic. His life is blighted by the residence’s numerous unwanted guests, including Beef, Bosh and next door neighbour Julie.

In the first episode, Bob has a date with a lovely lady lined up - he’s going to woo her during an evening of watching Conan the Barbarian. Unfortunately, a broken TV, a break-in, a gas leak and the arrival of an ex-con could scupper his chances of romance.

WEDNESDAY

The Restoration Man (Channel 4, 8pm)

ARCHITECTURAL guru George Clarke steps in to help people taking on rather large property projects on a budget. This week, he meets fellow architect Neil Worrell and his partner Jackie Robinson, who are making a rather big commitment. They’re now going to cement their relationship, not with something as simple as a champagne toast, but by purchasing an unused church in the picturesque fishing town of Brixham in Devon. But they’ve never lived together before and their building enterprise is no small task.

THURSDAY

Benidorm (STV, 9pm)

IT’S the show that promises sun, sea and sangria in these cold, gloomy months and it serves up another helping of laughs tonight, as Liam bumps into Bianca and immediately falls in love. But it’s not all good news in the resort, as Donald and Jacqueline receive sad news about their friend Big Donna.

Meanwhile, the grand reopening of Blow n’Go is interrupted by a rowdy stag party, and a familiar face returns - old Solana regular Martin Weedon (Nicholas Burns) is the best man with said stag party. And Madge is keen to stir things up with the Dyke family, so Janice, Mick, Tonya and Clive decide the best course of action is to ignore her.

FRIDAY

The Graham Norton Show (BBC One, 10.35pm)

MORE blarney from the king of chat, who this week welcomes Michael Fassbender and Lena Dunham. Plus, the red chair will be activated at least once more.

SATURDAY

The Voice - Blind Auditions (BBC One, 7pm)

EMMA Willis and Marvin Humes present the next set of Blind Auditions as each of the four coaches, Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones, Ricky Wilson and will.i.am, continue to build their talented team of 12.

Each coach has the power to kick start a career by pushing their red button and turning their chair. However, if more than one coach turns, the power shifts to the artist, meaning they can choose which superstar would be the perfect fit for their talent.

SUNDAY

The Musketeers (BBC One, 9pm)

THIS all-new drama introduces exciting heroes, action, adventure and romance inspired by Alexandre Dumas’s legendary characters.

In episode one, the brightest and best musketeers of the King’s Regiment - Athos, Porthos and Aramis - are dispatched by Captain Treville to find a missing musketeer carrying important letters on behalf of King Louis. But Cardinal Richelieu has plans to increase his political power and seeks to sabotage the good reputation of the musketeers.

Meanwhile, d’Artagnan travels from his family farm in Gascony to Paris to petition the king, but his peaceful plans are turned upside down when he is forced to find the Musketeers and seek vengeance for the brutal murder of a loved one.
