TV Guide 2023-03-25

A big week for new shows on Channel 4. Tempting Fortune (C4, Sun) invites people to spend their prize money on overpriced comforts. Celebrity Hunted (C4, Tue) tells Ed Gamble to get lost. Taskmaster (C4, Thu) asks Mae Martin to do something useless.

Some welcome new shows on the Beeb, too. Project Icon (BBC3, Sun) looks for a new singer-salesperson. You Heard It Here First (R4, Tue) is an interesting sound effects panel game. And there's Future Food Stars (BBC1, Thu), the biggest feedback since Next Level Chef.
