It's the 1,000th episode of Pointless! This time the hosts do a switcheroo, so Richard Osman takes centre stage and Alexander Armstrong is at the desk with much needed back-up.
Past contestants, including the pair who won a £24,750 prize and the winners of the first edition in 2009, will be back.

Wednesday: Midsomer Murders
An estate agent found dead with his body covered in live rabbits? Anything is possible in Midsomer Murders.

Thursday: Jack Dee's Inauguration HelpDesk

On Thursday, Jack Dee is re-opening his HelpDesk, this time tackling the public’s worries about the inauguration of President Trump.
He is joined by fellow agony aunts and uncles Romesh Ranganathan, Gabby Logan, Phil Wang and Sara Pascoe. As usual, the panel don’t know what questions they will be asked by audience members until the show begins.
Friday: Tina and Bobby
This three-part drama looks at the love story of Tina Dean and Bobby Moore - the childhood sweethearts from Essex who became one of the most famous couples of their era.
Bobby (Lorne MacFadyen) leads England to World Cup glory and Tina (Michelle Keegan) quickly finds herself in the spotlight. She soon realises she will have to share Bobby with the world of football.
BBC One, 9.15pm
Three weeks in, we still have no idea what's going on in Taboo, but we're still absolutely gripped.
The programme is a period piece set at some point in the past, featuring Tom Hardy as a man who has been to Africa, which is notable for some reason. He is also a potential cannibal, who owns, or may not own, a large chunk of North America.
It doesn't matter that the plot details are confusing. Taboo's mastery of suspense, stellar acting and a brilliant script pull us in every week.
Sunday: Apple Tree Yard
BBC One, 9pm
Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Louise Doughty, Apple Tree Yard tells the story of Dr Yvonne Carmichael (Emily Watson), a law-abiding wife and mother dealing with the consequences of a momentary decision that takes out of her depth.
When Yvonne is approached by handsome stranger Mark Costley (Ben Chaplin) she soon finds herself taking risks that she would have never dreamt of.
