TV tonight: lip-sync for your life with Paddy McGuiness | Television & radio


I Can See Your Voice

7.25pm, BBC One

First there was The Voice – disguising singers’ appearances by making judges face the wrong way – then, there was The Masked Singer – disguising singers’ appearances by making them wear outlandish outfits – and now there is I Can See Your Voice – a singing contest where hopefuls lip-sync a song, in full view, while judges work out if it is their voice on the recording or not. Paddy McGuiness hosts, while Jimmy Carr, Alison Hammond and Amanda Holden judge. Another surrealist intervention into reality TV. Ammar Kalia


8.20pm, BBC One

With queen of Casualty Connie slipping off on a break last week, the spotlight is back on paramedic-turned-drug-smuggler Jan, who’s caught up in a juicy storyline in a darkened car park. Her shifty behaviour lurking round prescription drugs raises eyebrows at work, but her reaction is defensive. Hannah Verdier

Keeping Faith

9pm, BBC One

Faith’s focus on her legal crusading gives Rose (Celia Imrie) an opening with Alys and provides Evan with ammunition in the custody battle. On the plus side, Faith’s finally getting it on with Steve (Mark Lewis Jones). But if the course of true love ever did run smooth, it definitely doesn’t in Abercorran. Ellen E Jones

The Jonathan Ross Show

9.35pm, ITV

With his Masked Singer judging over for now, Ross returns to his natural Saturday night habitat: cracking wise while lightly grilling celebs. The guest list for his opening show includes boxer Anthony Joshua, dancer Oti Mabuse, actor Daisy May Cooper, beefcake balladeer Rag’n’Bone Man and more. Graeme Virtue

Tupac Shakur: A Life in Ten Pictures
