Schedules were accurate at the time of publication, but will be affected by the death of Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September. Check against your EPG for late changes.

They're raising the cakes! Get your flour ready, prepare for soggy bottoms, because Bake Off is back (C4, Tue).

What else is back? Ninja Warrior (ITV, Sat), with some extra format tweaks. Guessable (Comedy Central, Mon), with Alex Horne, and Question Team (Dave, Mon) with Jo Brand. Never Mind the Buzzcocks has a new run (The Satellite Channel, Wed).

Daytime shows were meant to resume: Dickinson's Real Deal and Tenable (both ITV), and Pointless (BBC1). Antiques Road Trip takes off again (BBC1). It's the ITV Television Awards (Thu). None of this actually aired, of course.

Friday night is finals night. Wales' Home of the Year (BBC1 Wales) and Celebrity Masterchef (BBC1 network). Mock the Week reaches the beginning of the end (BBC2, Fri) by (er) being cancelled.
