**NEW** My Multiple Personalities and Me

When multiple personalities share one body, nothing in life is simple. This film is a unique window into the worlds of four extraordinary young people – who all live with multiple personalities. Each has more than a dozen personalities - known as alters - fighting to be heard.  They can be male, female, young or old and have accents from all over the world, and in incredible accounts they reveal how they are never alone.

As they try to live ordinary lives, surrounded by a constant crowd, we uncover what it’s really like to live with Dissociative Identity Disorder - or DID - formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder. We meet 27-year-old Kai and her 26-year-old partner Franz, who both have DID and between them live with over 400 alters. With dozens of personalities to satisfy, including child alters known as ‘littles’, keeping everyone happy is no easy task – particularly when child alters Xander and Shade show up demanding chocolate.

We also hear from 27-year-old Stacey who has a system of 16 different personalities.  

And we join 24-year-old Jade, who has never been able to share with her family any of her alternative personalities.  She has 26 alters and we meet one of them, Sarah – a 16-year-old alter who likes make-up and photography.

Classic Mary Berry

The Great Outdoors

Mary returns to one of her most loved locations, Port Isaac on the Cornwall coast. Along with the brilliant local Chef Nathan Outlaw she explores some of the wonderful classics inspired by the great outdoors – even if the weather is against them! From her take on a delicious Bouillabaisse filled with some of the ocean’s best offerings, to a freshly caught Mackerel bbq’d by the sea, and some rich and crispy Spatchcock Poussin marinated and cooked alongside it.  As the home cook and Michelin started chef cook alongside each other it is obvious how inspired they both are by the coast and a shared love of simple, fresh, local food cooked well.

MasterChef

The competition is about to get serious as Knockout Week begins..

TX 13 – Sunday 25th March, 8pm

30mins

After four weeks of fierce competition in the heats, 56 amateur cooks have been whittled down to just 16. Tonight, the heat dials up a notch for these talented cooks as they come together for the first time to cook-off against each other across two shows.

In tonight’s episode the amateurs are split into two groups – the blue group and the red group – with eight cooks in each. Both groups face a daunting cook-off, based on a brief given by John and Gregg. Their challenge is to create one dish inspired by a personal or family favourite recipe. After cooking, John and Gregg will decide who’s good enough to continue in the competition.

The blue group are the first to cook. In one hour and 30 mins, they must hold their nerve to deliver a dish that stands out from the crowd and prove to the judges that they have a future in the competition. However, they won’t find out their fate just yet, as they’ll have to wait until the red group have cooked before John and Gregg choose who stays and who goes.

One false move could be costly under this pressure. Who will prove they have what it takes to take their next steps towards being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018?

MasterChef is back with the most inspirational series yet. Out of the hundreds that auditioned, fifty-six amateur cooks have been whittled down to the most promising twelve. All of them have just one goal: to lift the coveted MasterChef Champion trophy.

Knockout Week continues, and last night saw four contestants leave the competition. Only the best can become Semi-Finalists at the end of this week.

Over the next two nights the heat intensifies as the remaining twelve contestants are split into two groups and get their first taste of a professional kitchen when they have to run an entire lunch time service.

Tonight, the first group head to ENEKO in Covent Garden, London. Spanish chef Eneko Atxa’s second restaurant, Eneko, specialises in Basque cuisine and is led by Head Chef Javi Blanco who helped launch it in 2016. During a busy lunch service, the six amateur cooks will be entirely responsible for serving the restaurant’s menu to paying customers. Who will buckle under the intense pressure as they cook in a demanding and totally new environment?

Then, it’s back to MasterChef HQ for an Invention Test for John and Gregg. In a bid to stay in the competition, each cook has to show they have learned from their experience and can create a unique and outstanding dish worthy of gracing the table of a professional restaurant.

In an unexpected twist, the contestants discover that they not only have to present their food to John and Gregg, but also a guest judge who will be helping John and Gregg evaluate the six amateurs – renowned fish chef and two Michelin-starred Nathan Outlaw, who has picked his favourite ingredients which the contestants must cook with.

After this challenge, one of them will be going home. Only the best five will make it through to Friday’s challenge – the gateway to this year’s semi-finals.

In a competition where only the food matters, these amateurs will need to stand out to survive - taking another precious step towards being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018.

TX 17 – Friday, 30th March, 9pm

MasterChef is back for its fourteenth year. Out of the hundreds of amateur cooks that auditioned, just the most gifted nine remain. All of them share the same goal: to become MasterChef Champion 2018.

It’s the end of Knockout Week and the competition has now been whittled down to nine extremely talented amateur cooks - all of whom are desperate to reach the MasterChef Semi-Finals.

At MasterChef HQ, the nine cooks have only one challenge: simply to cook one dish to win over the judges and secure them a Semi-Final place. They will have just 90 minutes to create their masterpiece. The best three cooks will become Semi Finalists. The other six will have to fight it out next week to earn a Semi-Final place. One wrong step and their dream of raising the MasterChef 2018 trophy will be over.

Tattoo Fixers

Tattoo Fixers: Most Shocking

A Tattoo Fixers special that looks back at some of the most startling, surprising and scandalous moments the show has ever seen.

Sketch gives Gaz’s downstairs an undead design, Alice helps Amy say adios to a preposterous proposal and Jay takes on Josh’s cringe worthy kiss.

Elsewhere Chelsea drops a bombshell, Cordelle turns out to be a party pooper and Ian’s ludicrous lingerie gets an airing.

999 Rescue Squad

The landmark series offers exclusive access to the Yorkshire Ambulance Service’s Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), the first in the UK to allow cameras to follow its medics at work. It’s one of 16 specialist medical units set up after the 7/7 London bombings to treat badly injured patients in extreme environments.

Throughout the series, viewers will gain unprecedented access to the UK’s toughest medics as they race against time to rescue individuals in life-threatening situations.

Do The Right Thing with Eamonn & Ruth

National treasures Eamonn and Ruth are once again in front of a live studio audience, to present the final instalment of their weekly consumer entertainment show. Along with reporters Roman Kemp and Michael Underwood, Eamonn and Ruth tell extraordinary stories of ordinary people. Ruth, Eamonn and the team report on the shocking rise in deaths and injuries caused by carbon monoxide poisoning in the nation’s homes. Thankfully, such instances are easily preventable, as the team demonstrate. Sadly however, some households are not so lucky, and the programme features dreadful case studies, ranging from a young man who lost his life after being in a coma for many years, to a family who were left shaken by their miraculous escape. Also tonight, the show is proud to announce a new network of after-school clubs, and Roman tries his hand at the latest dating craze—Speed Dating in a Taxi. Plus, the latest updates on the team’s campaign to end elderly loneliness with neighborhood tea parties that viewers can get involved in. And, to see out the series, there is a heartwarming reunion for one member of the studio audience.
