Christine Lampard, Matt Richardson and Jamie East, host a three-hour final episode of Celebrity Haunted Hotel, where for the past four nights, celebrities such as John Thomson, Jamelia, Sally Lindsay and Emma Kennedy have experienced some rather unexplainable activity!

Of course it’s only right that a show of this nature finishes on Halloween and the final episode will feature Ashley Taylor Dawson from Hollyoaks, TV presenters Matt Johnson and Vogue Williams, morning television royalty Penny Smith and Richard Arnold, plus a new addition to the group and checking-in on his own… It’s Strictly Come Dancing‘s scariest judge, Craig Revel Horwood!

Anything can, and probably will, happen.

5/5

Full of cliffhangers, tragedy and intrigue, The Moonstone is a brand new five-part costume drama adaptation, stripped across the week on BBC One and starring John Thomson (Cold Feet) and Sarah Hadland (Miranda).

A diamond goes missing after a party at an English country house, and numerous suspects have a motive for its disappearance. The charismatic Franklin Blake (Joshua Silver) realises he can only win the heart of his true love, the beautiful and independent Rachel Verinder (Terenia Edwards), if he finds the thief.

He persuades the celebrated detective Sergeant Cuff (John Thomson) out of retirement to assist him in investigating the theft and, with the help of the Verinder family’s trusted servant Gabriel Betteredge (Leo Wringer), they travel between London and Yorkshire in their quest.

Citizen Khan

Citizen Khan is back for a fifth series, and in the first episode Mr Khan has to bare all after forgetting his wedding anniversary, and he has a chance meeting with Sadiq Khan, The Mayor of London.

Mr Khan makes an exhibition of himself in front of a packed house at Edgbaston Cricket Ground. Having been made to sleep in the car by Mrs Khan after forgetting their wedding anniversary, Mr Khan is on a mission to make amends, but his boast to Dave that he knows local boy Moeen Ali backfires when Amjad suggests he could get the famous England all-rounder to make a celebrity appearance at the fundraiser that Mrs Khan and Shazia are helping organise.

Mr Khan has no option but to get to the cricket match and find Moeen and do whatever it takes. The great British public can look forward to quite a reveal. The episode guest stars Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, Test Match Special’s Jonathan Agnew and former England Cricket Captain Michael Vaughan.

In the last of the series of The Level, Nancy’s personal and professional lives collide when she sees a connection between her mother and the missing truck. Suddenly, the full extent of Frank’s monstrous crimes becomes clear.

Shaken by recent events, Hayley asks Cherie some probing questions. Yet again Cherie doesn’t seem to want to face the truth. When Hayley is later let down by her ex-husband, it is Quinn who offers much-needed comfort. Hayley realises Quinn is the man she needs.

Stood down by Newman for being too emotionally involved, Nancy is forced to operate outside the law to prove her case against Nash. The evidence she passes on to Newman, with Gunner’s help, is enough to damage Nash, but not enough to prevent him taking his revenge. . .

Revisiting the evidence around the murders, Gil encourages Nancy to follow a new angle. As realisation dawns Nancy knows what she has to do. Suddenly, the hunt for the killer becomes a race against time, as those she loves are in danger. Gil is left fighting for his life, and a murderous Nash has Nancy in his sights.

With Newman finally back on her side, and a killer with nothing left to lose, Nancy races to a gripping showdown with the enemy – one last desperate push to save the person she loves most.

7. Planet Earth II | Sunday 6th November, 8pm on BBC One

Over three years in the making, with 117 filming trips in 40 different countries and a total of 2089 shooting days, David Attenborough is back narrating Planet Earth II.

When Planet Earth came out a decade ago, it transformed how viewers saw their planet. The first natural history series to be filmed in high definition, it captivated a global audience of over half a billion people by giving them an unprecedented view of life on Earth.

Now 10 years on, the programme is revisiting this rich subject but with a new perspective. More than just observe, they want to immerse audiences in the most spectacular landscapes and habitats on Earth and bring them eye to eye with the animals that live there.

Advances in filming technology have made it possible for the  to reveal the natural world in entirely new ways. Able to go further, get closer and capture behaviour and places that would have been impossible 10 years ago. From the highest mountains to the remotest islands and from the richest jungles to the harshest deserts, Planet Earth II focuses on the most iconic habitats on land and seeks to bring audiences an experience of what it’s like to live in these great wildernesses.

For the very first time in a landmark natural history series, in the final episode they journey to cities to witness the surprising ways that some animals are managing to thrive in the urban world, before considering what the future holds for our relationship with the natural world.

Planet Earth II promises to be a jaw dropping landmark event that we hope will thrill and inspire new audiences the world over.
