Robson Green goes in search of the biggest, wildest and tastiest fish you can find in British waters.

He'll be immersing himself in the distinct maritime cultures around the British Isles, and exploring how we can preserve fish stocks, while still enjoying the nation's favourite Friday night takeaway, by getting his hands on some of the best scampi, lobster, plaice and sea bass in the whole world.

He begins his quest by travelling around the South West of England as he seeks the Conger Eel.

Riverdale 6

When Season 5 came to a close, Veronica and Reggie plotted to open a casino, Toni and Fangs began a romantic relationship, and a bomb went off at the Andrews house.

As Season 6 begins, Jughead Jones walks us through Riverdale — only the beloved town much darker, creepier, and seemingly haunted.

The gang will wrestle with moral dilemmas, caught between and epic battle of good and evil.

In the Season 6 premiere, "Chapter Ninety-Six: Welcome to Rivervale": Following the explosion that ended Season 5, a new day dawns in the town of RiverVALE, where everything is as it should be.

Veronica and Reggie are now the town's power couple, while Jughead and Tabitha move in together.

But with Cheryl demanding a return to the "old ways," this serenity will surely not last.

And how could Archie and Betty possibly have survived?

In the Season 2 premiere, "Sweet Child O' Mine": After finding out Johan has been pretending to be a different race, Rainbow gets mad.

Meanwhile, Alicia and Paul try to find a way to encourage Johan to be proud of being Black.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Brand New Funk": Alicia and Denise bicker over who is the stronger Black woman, and Paul and Harrison come up with a new way of showing affection.

Since they were young, the quartet have challenged one another to do ridiculous dares in public.

On the show, to find out who is best under pressure, the guys compete in awkward and outrageous hidden-camera hijinks.

At the end of each episode, the loser must perform what is deemed to be the most-mortifying challenge yet.

In the Season 11 premiere, "The Marathon Man": Sal, Murr, Q and Joe climb to the Top of the Rock for some awkward interactions, then "wet" their appetites at a bagel shop.
