Nigel Slater transforms leftovers into some delicious suppers

Food fanatic Nigel Slater continues to raid his cupboards, fridge and vegetable patch, as he cooks up some more Simple Suppers.

This week, Nigel concentrates on transforming leftovers into delicious suppers by adding just a few simple ingredients. He shows viewers how the remains of a Sunday roast can become a tasty chicken salad with cous cous and oranges; uses up leftover mash to create potato cakes with a creamy sauce; makes a quick and easy dessert of rhubarb tart with mascarpone cream; shares an imaginative new way to serve mackerel; and makes a tempting leek risotto, served with parmesan crisps.

Nigel also visits local allotments and is challenged to cook something on the plot using the freshest of ingredients.

The series is part of the BBC's Dig In campaign, which encourages people to grow their own produce.

Shooting Stars Ep 4/6

Wednesday 16 September
10.00-10.30pm BBC TWO

Hairy Biker Dave Myers, cleaning guru Kim Woodburn and comic Lee Mack are tonight's featured guests, as Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer host another edition of the celebrity showbiz quiz.

There are more surreal contributions from Matt Lucas (as George Dawes) and strong displays of resilience from team captains Ulrika Jonsson and Jack Dee, while oddball burger van owner Angelos Epithemiou (played by Dan Skinner) once again joins in the mayhem.

Vic and Bob recreate a famous scene from a Bond movie, George Dawes performs a very special version of the Hokie Cokie and Dave Myers is not at all surprised when asked to fend off some bizarre celebrity mutants in the final challenge.

Roy – On The Run Ep 7/13

Wednesday 16 September
4.30-5.00pm CBBC

Roy faces life on the streets this week but, with few provisions and hardly any money, the cartoon boy living in the real world finds it hard to fend for himself – even with the support of his friends.

Roy's boredom on a Sunday afternoon sees him trying desperately to distract his sister, Becky, from her homework. His cartoon capers inadvertently cause a commotion in the kitchen, which prompts his frustrated mother to yell: "Get out!" Roy, however, takes this literally and thinks that he has been banished from the house for good.

When his friends, Tommy and Jack, learn of his new runaway status, they decide to make a documentary about his life on the streets. But, when Roy and his pals overhear the local bullies telling a ghost story about the red-eyed witch, spending the night camping in Tommy's garden no longer seems like such a good idea.

Roy is voiced by Scott Graham. Becky is played by Martha Byrne, Maura by Cathy Belton, Tommy by David Green and Jack by Fionn O'Shea.

Filmed as a fly-on-the-wall documentary series, CBBC's Roy combines hand-drawn animation with real-world drama as it follows the story of how one boy struggles to fit in.
