Wednesday evening's TV sees everyone's favourite foul mouthed chef swap the kitchen for a game show studio with Gordon Ramsay's Bank Balance

The programme won't be clashing with daytime favourites like Tipping Point and The Chase however, as it's got the late slot of 9pm - so the air might be turning blue on the new BBC show. 

On streaming, Ginny & Georgia makes it's way onto Netflix if you're after something more bingeable.

Meanwhile, nature-lovers and those looking for holidays closer to home will appreciate Julia Bradbury's Corwall walks and Sandi Toksvig's Scottish escapes in their respective programmes.

New drama Ginny & Georgia hits Netflix on Wednesday as young mum Georgia (Brianne Howey) moves to New England with her two children, teenage daughter Ginny (Antonia Gentry) and younger son Austin (Diesel La Torraca).

The premise of the show has understandably drawn comparisons with the ever popular Gilmore Girls, but it's been teased Georgia has a dark past waiting to catch up with her so it sounds a bit more gritty than Lorelai and Rory's antics. 

The first series, which will drop all at once, consists of 10 episodes.

There's a ring to return to its original glory for goldsmith David Talman, a guitar that needs some TLC from luthier Julyan Wallis and a bait wallet for leather expert Susie Fletcher to work on. 

Meanwhile, metal expert Dominic China is put to the test with the oldest item he's ever worked on in the form of a 200-year-old weathervane.

The participants answer questions to build up stacks of different sized gold bars on a volatile balance board - but they must be careful they don't all come tumbling down and ruin their chances at big money.

A unusually late slot for a gameshow, but the pre-watershed placement means we could be hearing plenty of classic Ramsay expletives.
