TANYA'S BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
All the TV that's mad, bad, or just a little bit evil for Wednesday. Our Tiny Tanya Turner ratings show just how low each show goes – the more Tanyas a show scores, the more mental it is.
» FIGHT! Friends, E4, 8.00pm
Not a new episode, obviously, but quite possibly the best episode. It's series three (before Monica got too thin, before Ross got too annoying, and before Chandler got too unfunny) and it's Thanksgiving. Joey suggests a friendly game of American football while the turkey cooks, only to discover that Ross and Monica are banned from the sport ever since Monica broke Ross's nose playing it as children. The game goes ahead, but it's not long before those childhood rivalries come right back to the surface. "Cheater, cheater, compulsive eater!"
» PLIGHT! Property Ladder, Channel 4, 8.00pm
The new series shows no signs of slowing down as Sarah Beeny dispenses more sage property development advice to various trustfunded idiots with no taste, no concept of budgeting, and no hope of succeeding. It might not be as entertaining as last week's edition (where you could follow the delay on the property by watching Sarah Beeny go from slightly pregnant, to heavily pregnant, to new mother), but there's bound to be fun to be had from a couple who "ignore expert advice" to think they can renovate a home for £15,000. Good job Sarah's more patient than we would be.
» WRITE! The Great British Spelling Test, ITV1, 9.00pm
ITV1 goes all PSB on us as it invites us to test are sppellin. It's hosted by Gabby Logan and Neil Fox, both of whom we know to be exceedingly choosy about the projects they'll front, so expect this to be a high-class affair. It will, of course, give the English graduates amongst us an excuse for a good chuckle at all the cretins with sob stories about their misspelt tattoos. Hurrah!
