What is the pick of Saturday night TV?

I Can See Your Voice (BBC1, 7.25pm)

The mystery singing game show is now on its third episode, but if you haven’t seen I Can See Your Voice yet, then let its host Paddy McGuinness explain it.

He says: “The format of I Can See Your Voice, it’s very simple really, you’ve got good singers and bad singers, but we don’t know who is good or who is bad.

“You’ve got to get rid of the bad singers throughout the rounds and be left with just one good singer to win £10,000. And each round is played out differently, the first round is the profile round, where you just look at someone and take a total guess, the second round is the lip sync challenge, where you get a bit more about how they’re holding the mic, how they’re carrying themselves.”

He continues: “Then the next round we see a VT about the singer, and then finally they get grilled by the contestants. There are only two singers left at the end and they have to answer quick fire questions, and we don’t know if they are good or bad singers.

“Then at the end, the last singer duets with our guest popstar and hopefully they are a good singer which means the contestants win £10,000!”
