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.
» GORY! Bodies, BBC Two, 9.00pm
Another top BBC Three show gets a terrestrial outing on BBC Two. Written by Jed Mercurio (of Cardiac Arrest fame), Max Beesley stars in this drama set in a hospital maternity ward riddled with malpractice. Those of you with weak constitutions may want to look away. Frequently.
» GLORY! Musicality, Channel 4, 9.00pm
Another TV talent search, although this couldn't be more distant from The X Factor if it tried (it's got some talent on screen, for starters). The aspiring auditionees have been invited to London for an intensive two-day workshop of showtunes, chorus lines and jazz hands. Even if you hate musicals (like us), it's still surprisingly entertaining, largely due to the fact that you won't want to kill any of the judges, and the contestants seem a nice enough bunch too.
» DANCEFLOOR-Y! Faking It, Channel 4, 10.00pm
It's a repeat, but it's one we missed the first time around and it sounds like a stunner. Clog dancing Jessica from Cornwall has four weeks to learn how to get her groove on as a backing dancer for bona fide superstar Jamelia at a show in Earl's Court. It's probably the only time you're likely to see clog dancing on the telly for a while, isn't it? At least until Strictly Come Dancing undergoes a rebrand.
