Here’s everything you’ll want to watch this week

Taking a step back from our usual crime thrillers and dramas, we’re looking forward to reality TV and award shows this week. There’s not a Love Islander in sight but we might have found the next best thing on Netflix, meanwhile we’re seeing Yorkshire’s forests in a new light and following County Durham’s Scarlett Moffatt on her driving lessons.

-Monday 13th February-

Scarlett's Driving School, 8.30pm, BBC One

After failing her driving test 13 times, Scarlett Moffatt has finally passed. While she was learning, she was helping others to do the same. In the first episode of her new show we join 25-year-old Jess for her lessons; she has been learning for eight years and now some professional instructors will no longer get in a car with her. Her step-dad Richard is her last chance to get her licence as she tackles the five-day crash course at Scarlett’s Driving School.

Perfect Match, Netflix

We had to pick a dating show for Valentine’s Day, right? This new one to rival Love Island comes out on the 14th and couples have to prove their compatibility to gain the power to make or break other matches. It’s far more strategic than any other dating show we’ve seen, very in keeping for Netflix. Players include those from Love Is Blind, Too Hot to Handle and The Circle, plus other Netflix series.

Secret Life of the Forest, 8pm, Channel 5

The new series of Secret Life of the Forest follows a growing family of beavers in Dalby, Cropton and Langdale forests in North Yorkshire, all working hard to improve the landscape and reduce the risk of flooding. Following the success of the first series of Channel 5’s Secret Life of the Forest, this second series has been expanded, covering three different forests in North Yorkshire. Filmed over the summer of 2022, the eight-part series (narrated by actor Robert Lindsay) will focus on the diverse wildlife and nature in the three forests and the Forestry England staff and volunteers who care for the landscape and its inhabitants.

Clarkson's Farm, Prime Video

Love him or loathe him, you’re invited back to Diddly Squat Farm as series two of Jeremy Clarkson’s show has arrived on Prime Video. This new series promises to offer a deeper insight into another year on the farm as Jeremy plans to diversify, expanding his (very) limited agricultural knowledge.

-Friday 17th February-

The National Comedy Awards for Stand Up to Cancer 2023, 9pm, Channel 4

Let’s have a laugh. Tom Allen is hosting this annual ceremony from London's Roundhouse, celebrating both emerging and established comedians. Categories include Best Scripted Comedy, Best Comedy Podcast and Outstanding Comedy Actress and Actor. We’re rooting for Sarah Millican (for her appearance on Taskmaster), The Chris and Rosie Ramsey Show and Sh**ged Married Annoyed, Derry Girls and Would I Lie to You?.

-Saturday 18th February-

Gravity, 7.15pm, BBC Two

The must-watch film this Saturday night is 2013’s Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Two astronauts are left stranded above Earth when their shuttle is destroyed. With no way of contacting mission control, they must try to reach the safety of a space station before their oxygen supply runs out.

-Sunday 19th February-

British Academy Film Awards, 7pm, BBC One

Richard E Grant is hosting the 76th British Academy Film Awards from the Royal Festival Hall in London, and Alison Hammond will be catching up with the nominees backstage. All Quiet on the Western Front has an impressive total of 14 nominations, while Everything Everywhere All at Once has 10 and Elvis has nine.

-Catch Up On-

Dear Edward, Apple TV+

New to Apple TV this month, this heart-warming series starring Connie Britton follows a 12-year-old boy who is the lone survivor of a plane crash. As everyone tries to make sense of what’s happened, friendships, community and romances are formed.
