TANYA'S BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
All the TV that's mad, bad, or just a little bit evil for Tuesday. Our Tiny Tanya Turner ratings show just how low each show goes – the more Tanyas a show scores, the more mental it is.
» SPUR! Property Ladder, Channel 4, 8.00pm
If there's one thing on Property Ladder that's guaranteed to infuriate us, it's clueless "it" girls (or boys, we're not sexist here) embarking on a surely-doomed property development career that is being sponsored entirely by the Bank of Daddy. Tonight should be something of a relief, then, since Jane and Thomas are attempting to do up a property on a paper-thin budget, to the extent that they're trying to win free labour in poker games. With any luck, we'll be rooting for them to succeed for a change, rather than secretly hoping they fail.
» BLUR! Most Haunted, Living TV, 9.00pm
We didn't have time to point out this new series another week, but if you're a fan of Yvette Fielding wandering around with a night-vision camera and a terrified expression on her face, you'll have made this appointment to view already, we're sure. We're still unsure if this is complete hokum or whether they may have made a few paranormal breakthroughs, but whatever your stance on that rather grey area, this is a hoot.
» HER! Twisted Tales, BBC3, 10.30pm
There's been something reasonably hit-and-miss about this series, and without the luxuries of preview tapes (contrary to popular belief, we don't get the same treatment as real listings magazines) we can't tell you if this particular instalment is going to be any good. What we can tell you, however, is that this particular episode features Victoria Hamilton, and we'd quite happily tune in just to watch her reading aloud from the phone book, so we're at least reasonably hopeful of greatness.
