The Boys and Bridgerton are back for more, but the biggest drama of the week may be British politics.

The Traitors US


BBC Three, 9.00pm

The American version of the gameshow where contestants trust no-one and suspect everyone comes to British TV for a second series.

Fans of fringes will be disappointed to learn that Claudia Winkleman (Strictly Come Dancing) does not host this version. Keeping things (almost) as camp, though, is the ever-dependable Alan Cumming (The Good Wife).

The star-studded line-up of contestants includes Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu (Love Island), Peppermint (RuPaul’s Drag Race) and John Bercow (the House of Commons). Let the games begin.




Come one, come all, for the second part of the latest foray into the Ton’s social season. Lace up your corset, powder your wig and leave any expectations of realism at the door. We’ve got couples to ship.

The first half of the third series ended on suitably dramatic terms. ‘Polin’ is well and truly on, with Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) proposing marriage to Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan). We await the remaining four episodes of the series with bated breath. Or maybe our corset’s just too tight.

The Boys


Prime Video

Things are about to get diabolical again.

It’s been almost two years since the last series of the superhero satire came to an end. Series three saw Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) – going by his accent, a cockney from, um, Wellington – become terminally ill from his use of a compound that gives its users superpowers, temporarily. 

Now, Butcher is convinced he’s found a virus that kills ‘Supes’.

“I can do one thing right with the time I got left,” he intones grimly in the series four trailer, “but I can’t do it alone.”

Oh, and a bulletproof chicken bursts out of someone’s chest at one point.

Multi-Party Election Debate

With just weeks to go until the general election, Britain’s seven most prominent political parties go head-to-head.

Last week, Conservative Prime Minister Rishi Sunak debated Labour leader Keir Starmer. Polls suggest that viewers were left underwhelmed by both candidates, with 62% of respondents to a snap YouGov poll describing the bout as “frustrating”.

However, Sunak came out very narrowly on top, with 51% agreeing he had performed the best, compared to Starmer’s 49%.

Now, Labour and the Tories will go up against the leaders or senior representatives from Liberal Democrats, SNP, Reform UK, Green Party and Plaid Cymru.

Serbia v England, UEFA Euro 2024

The England and Serbia men’s teams play in a group stage match at Arena AufSchalke in Germany.

England manager Gareth Southgate released his 26-strong squad ahead of the Friday deadline, supposedly to keep players’ focus on the games. The list was notable for the omissions of high-profile players, including midfielders James Maddison and Jack Grealish and centre-back Harry Maguire.

After beating Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-0 in a friendly, can England keep the streak going? Will this finally be the tournament that we don’t lose on penalties?
