The Great British Sewing Bee 6

Amateur sewers compete to impress judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young, hoping to be crowned Britain's most sensational seamster.

The Great British Sewing Bee is back, with 12 sewers competing this time.

Joe Lycett kicks off 10 weeks of the most perplexing patterns, eye-popping transformations and stunning made-to-measure garments yet.

Scrutinising every stitch are Saville Row's Patrick Grant and Central Saint Martins's Esme Young, testing the sewers across a huge range of garments from rugby shirts to children's dungarees, flamenco skirts to a boned basque, via food fancy dress.

In their first week, the sewers are eased in gently with wardrobe staples that might look familiar but aren't necessarily straightforward to make.

For their pattern challenge, the judges ask for a wrap skirt, a garment whose clean crisp lines can only be achieved through precise cutting, accurate stitching and a judicious choice of fabric.

Next, the contestants' ability to make the ordinary extraordinary is put to the test in the transformation challenge, as they transform two plain men's office shirts into a stylish new garment to fit a female mannequin.

For the week's final challenge, the mannequins are replaced with human models as the sewers attempt to make their first made-to-measure garment - a tea dress.

This classic below-the-knee and above-the-ankle dress allows for interpretation, letting the contestants' personalities shine through whether they opt for a vintage or contemporary style.

It also proves to be a benchmark test of their ability to achieve a flawless fit and to impress the judges with the finer details.

Battling against the clock to showcase their skill and creativity, who will stitch their way to Garment of the Week, and who will unravel at this early stage, becoming the first to leave the Great British Sewing Bee?

Driving Wild

Driving Wild follows former Formula 1 mechanic Marc "Elvis" Priestley, as he gets up close to some of the world's most fascinating amateur motorsports.

Elvis was one of McLaren Racing's top mechanics, helping the team become Formula 1 World Champions.

Now, he's after a new challenge: Elvis is going back to basics, taking his F1 know-how to some of the most extraordinary amateur motorsports on the planet – tractor pulling in the UK, car spinning in South Africa, hopping low-riders in Mexico, folk racing in Sweden, drag racing in Cuba and long-tail boat racing in Thailand.

Traveling thousands of miles, Elvis will take his specialist knowledge to each grassroots racing scene, and work with local auto experts to build superior vehicles for competition.

With little time, limited funds, strict guidelines and foreign motorsports, the like of which he has never seen before, Elvis will not only attempt to transform these motors into winners, but also satisfy the crowds and honour the traditions along the way.

In the series premiere, "South African Car Spinners": Can mechanic Marc perform the motorsport of car spinning - old BMWs performing balletic moves - in Johannesburg's biggest spin arena?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta 14

Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Shereé Whitfield and Drew Sidora return for Season 14.

Former friend Marlo Hampton is back, and this time, holding her very own peach.

Newest Housewife Sanya Richards-Ross joins as a four-time Gold Medal Olympian, mother, wife and businesswoman.

One of Kandi's longtime pals, Monyetta Shaw, appears this season as a friend. She is a mother to two children and a recent newlywed to her husband, Heath.

Coming up this season:

Kandi Burruss is as driven as ever with ambitions to dominate music, Broadway, film, and television.

Kandi's son, Ace, has plans to follow in his mother's footsteps and begins to act alongside Kandi.

At home, Todd and Mama Joyce reignite old battles surrounding estate plans for the family and their future success.

Kenya Moore's confidence shines bright after a whirlwind season dancing with the stars in Los Angeles and spending time in Turks & Caicos.

Raising daughter Brooklyn is her top priority, but she still finds time to focus on her business as her haircare line reaches new heights.

Despite making peace last season, tensions rise between Kenya and Marlo, and with years of history, the two may never be able to see eye-to-eye.

Shereé Whitfield is back and Chateau Shereé is complete.

After years of anticipation, SHE by Shereé finally launches and the long-awaited spring/summer joggers hit the marketplace.

Her old flame Tyrone is back in the picture, but with a complicated past, the rekindling of their relationship doesn't run according to plan.

Marlo Hampton doesn't a miss a beat when it comes to fashion, but finds herself with a full plate as she balances raising her nephews while facing the family's hard times and growing pains.

Her business, Lé Archive, is expanding, but not all the ladies are buying what she's selling.

Marlo and Kandi's relationship is in question after an altercation goes below the belt.

Back for her sophomore season, Drew Sidora returns with a major glow-up and new acting gigs and business ventures in the works.

From broken trust and questionable assistants, Drew and her husband, Ralph, confront the strains in their relationship head-on through couples counseling.

Joining the cast this season is Sanya Richards-Ross, a mother, wife, professional athlete, and Olympic medalist.

Focused on expanding her professional ventures while still prioritising her family, Sanya and her husband contemplate if the time is right to have another child.

With live-in parents, her family and Jamaican upbringing is at the forefront of her life.

This season, Sanya brings the ladies to Jamaica to share her culture and host a much-needed tropical getaway.

In the Season 14 premiere, "The Edge of Fashion": Marlo hosts a high-fashion gala to introduce her business, Le'Archive, to Atlanta's elite, but not everyone is buying what she has to sell.

Drew gets an Olympic workout with her new friend, Sanya, and an epic runaround from her husband, Ralph.

Shereé returns with an exciting update on her boyfriend.

Mark of a Serial Killer 3

The behaviours and patterns may differ, but some serial killers simply cannot resist leaving a personal mark on each of their heinous crimes.

From post-mortem rituals to crime scene mementoes, these perverse trademarks are often meant to taunt law enforcement but can end up providing vital clues that help the investigators bring down the perpetrator.

Each episode delves into a different case involving a serial killer's signature, featuring first-hand accounts from the detectives involved as well as interviews with criminal psychology experts and those close to the victims.

In the Season 3 premiere, "The I-40 Killer": A killer is murdering and mutilating young women along the Route 40 corridor in Delaware.

But when investigators set up an undercover operation, the hunter soon becomes the hunted.
