Tattoo Fixers

This week in the pop up parlour, Glen gets to work on Jack’s jubilant Johnson, Alice waves her magic wand for real-life witch Kamilla and Jay fixes Matt’s bad bum based chat up line. Meanwhile Ben's silly spooning tattoo is given the boot, Jade's bad memories are erased by a beautiful tiger design and Andy needs help with his bad manners.

Into The Fire

West Midlands Fire Service extinguish up to 10,000 fires a year. This special episode goes back into the fire and looks at some of the most incredible moments captured by firefighters themselves across the series using heat-resistant helmet cameras.

Firefighters from Billesey Red Watch battle a house fire which puts all of their training to the test. Bloxwich White Watch encounter a gang burning copper cable. Erdington Green Watch risk their lives to search for people who could be inside a burning house. And Highgate Red Watch race to rescue a three-year-old reported trapped by a fire.

Classic Mary Berry

This is classic Mary at her best as she returns to school to celebrate her easy, light and delicious cooking. From a simple version of the classic Kedgeree and some delightful breakfast Drop Scones, to a moreish Chicken, Avocado and Bacon Salad and deliciously easy Beef Burgers. Mary takes her inspiration from a visit to a ground breaking primary school in South London who has built a secret garden where they teach their students how to grow vegetables and look after a brood of chickens. It doesn’t stop there as Mary joins two enthusiastic and skilful Year 5 pupils in the teaching kitchen to make something deliciously fresh for their school lunch.

MasterChef

TX4 - Monday 5th March, 9pm

60 mins

Out of the thousands who applied, this series’ amateur cooks have made it through to compete over four weeks of heats, ready to produce some of the most inspiring exceptional and unusual food ever seen on the series.

It’s the second week of Heats and seven more hopefuls need to pull out all the stops to prove to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to rise above the rest to become MasterChef 2018 Champion.

This year sees the return of the MasterChef Market, stocked full of the best quality produce from across the world including meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts, pulses, grains and dairy. The challenge is to invent and then cook one dish using anything from the Market. This time, the featured ingredients include venison, chicken, parma ham, sea bream and pollock. They have an hour and 10 minutes to dazzle the judges and prove they are good enough to stay in the competition. The stakes are high in this round and it’s important to choose wisely because after tasting all seven dishes, John and Gregg will decide which four cooks are good enough to stay, while three cooks will be sent straight home.

The four remaining cooks now have one more challenge standing between them and a Quarter Final place. They must cook two courses that will excite not just John and Gregg, but also some very special guests. Some of MasterChef’s most inspiring winners and finalists return to judge the food of this year’s new contenders to the throne. In tonight’s Heat, the contestants must attempt to impress 2015’s MasterChef Finalists, Tony Rodd and Emma Spitzer and 2015 MasterChef Champion, Simon Wood.

After the four hopefuls have cooked, John and Gregg will decide which three contestants deserve to take the next step in the competition and go through to Friday’s Quarter Final. In a competition where only the food matters, these amateurs will need to be good to survive - taking their first step towards being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018.

It’s the Quarter Final, and the six talented heat winners have no time to rest on their laurels as they continue to fight for their place in the competition.

In the Critic’s Test, the week’s best amateurs will be put through the mill with a seriously daunting test set by one of the country’s toughest food critics. Tonight’s brief has been set by Jay Rayner.

His challenge for the amateur cooks is to make an exceptional pie – it can be any pie they like, sweet or savoury, but they must make their own pastry.

After cooking their dish based on this brief, the contestants stand before Jay Rayner and judges John and Gregg, to hear, face-to-face, what they think of their dish and whether they’ve managed to rise to the challenge and fulfil the expectations.

At the end of this Quarter Final, the best cooks will go through to Knockout Week, taking another step closer to being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018.

999 Rescue Squad

Programme following the work of the UK’s toughest medics - the members of the Yorkshire Ambulance Service’s Hazardous Area Response Team.

The HART team are called to join the operation to defuse a bomb found in a house in Wakefield as disposal officers from the Army try to make a safe a lethal IED.  In woods near Leeds, there’s a tricky rescue after a BMX rider falls and fractures his spine.

There’s a manhunt on the banks of a river in Leeds after a man with a knife holds up a store and the team are called to treat the fugitive after he finally surrenders.

Team leader Caz leads a life or death operation to save a van driver who collapsed at the wheel and in Halifax a teenager’s armed is impaled on a gate, sparking a surprisingly complex operation to free him.

In a bizarre coincidence, paramedic Daz finds that the firefighter leading the rescue of an elderly motorist, trapped after a crash, is the patient’s son in law.
