Once again, Helicopter ER follows the flying doctors and paramedics of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, who cover thousands of square miles over dramatic dales and bleak moors. It's scenery to die for - but it you're seriously ill or critically injured, their beauty really could cost you your life.
Every day the helimed team must use courage, speed and ingenuity to keep its patients alive long enough to reach the hospital care they desperately need. It's high octane drama where the stars are real-life heroes and the life or death jeopardy is genuine.

Celebrity MasterChef returns for its twelfth series, with 20 familiar faces from the world of show business and music, all hoping to follow in the footsteps of last year’s champion Alexis Conran and take the 2017 title.
The hunt continues in this third heat week as five new celebrities take on the challenge to become the Celebrity MasterChef Champion. Trying to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace this week are TV Presenter Ulrika Jonnson, Opera Singer Lesley Garrett, Actor Nick Moran, Children’s TV Presenter Barney Harwood and Journalist and Broadcaster Aasmah Mir.
The first challenge for the five hopefuls is the Mystery Box; the infamous test of imagination and creativity. Tonight they must use the given ingredients including rainbow trout, brown shrimp, noodles, mango and dark chocolate, as well as a basic larder, to create just one dish – sweet or savoury. With nerves running high and just one hour to create something from scratch, the celebrities must think on their feet to impress the judges.
The celebrities are then split into two groups to take on the challenge of cooking for the first time in a restaurant kitchen, preparing dishes for paying customers.
Nick, Barney and Aasmah are being sent to Boisdale, a Scottish themed restaurant in Canary Wharf, and are thrown into the deep end as they struggle to cope with an unfamiliar kitchen and a busy service. Lesley and Ulrika are sent to Jin Juu, where they fight to master the cooking of their dishes while keeping on top of customer orders.
In the final test of culinary creativity, it’s back to the MasterChef headquarters, as the contestants are asked to prepare a two course menu of their own design. The celebrities work furiously in a last attempt to prove themselves to the judges, because at the end of this test one of them will be going home.
Celebrity MasterChef returns for its twelfth series, with 20 familiar faces from the world of show business and music all hoping to take the 2017 title.
This week’s heat continues with the four remaining celebrities fighting for a place in the semi-finals.
Tonight’s first challenge is a Knowledge and Skills test, where the celebrities have the terrifying task of facing judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace one by one and demonstrate their ability to identify a tray of ingredients, three root vegetables and three birds before being asked to cook a duck breast with Swiss chard and a caper butter sauce in just 12 minutes
The celebrities are then split into teams, and are sent out on their first mass catering challenge. Today they will have to make lunch for over 120 members of staff and players at The Oval Cricket Ground, home to Surrey County Cricket Club.
With an array of ingredients including beef mince, chicken supreme and sea bream and a range of fruit and vegetables, the two teams must devise, prepare and serve the lunch, catering for various tastes while creating meat based, vegetarian and dessert dishes in volume. In the heat of the kitchen the celebrities will have to rely on teamwork skills as well as their culinary ones to triumph.
Then it’s back to the MasterChef headquarters as the battle for a semi-final place reaches its climax. The four celebrities must now cook a faultless two course meal that will not only be judged by John and Gregg, but also by reigning Celebrity MasterChef champion Alexis Conran (2016), and finalists Louise Minchin (2016), and Sam Nixon (2015), all former survivors of this landmark moment.
With their last chances to impress for a semi-final place, emotions in the kitchen are running high, and the pressure proves too much for some contestants. The celebrity judges deliver some frank and cutting responses to some of the dishes, but others fare much better.
Only the best two contestants can earn a semi-final place and come one step closer to winning the title of Celebrity MasterChef 2017. For those who don’t make the grade the journey ends here.
Episode two’s theme is Movement and sees the teams compete in two challenges. The first is an unplanned build where they each must build a different mode of transport.
