Jo Malone helps two creative entrepreneurs enter the fiercely competitive fashion industry
Jo Malone helps two creative entrepreneurs enter the fiercely competitive fashion industry

Jo Malone helps two creative entrepreneurs enter the fiercely competitive fashion industry, in the latest episode of the series in which she and fellow business expert Nick Leslau mentor the owners of eight small businesses with big retail dreams from across Britain.

Beryl Brewis is a 39-year-old single mum from High Wycombe who, with a little help from some local grannies, is determined to help keep Brits warm in winter with her knitted merino wool scarves. After losing her fiancé last year, Beryl wants to get her life back on track by pouring her heart and soul into her business and is passionate about realising her dreams of selling her scarves on the high street and providing a better life for her and her two teenage sons. Impressed by her steely determination, Jo and Nick introduce Beryl to Pringle's creative director Clare Waight Keller who, with their help, must take Beryl swiftly back to the drawing board in the hope she can gain enough confidence to create a coveted accessory just right for the high street market.

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Claire English from East Sussex is hoping to make the jump from selling small numbers of her eclectic handmade jewellery at Portobello Market to securing a desirable business deal with a high-end national retailer. Encouraged by a fashion editor's feedback, Jo and Nick soon recognise that while Claire is an incredible British talent, she only makes just enough money to survive. They call upon top celebrity jeweller Stephen Webster to help Claire focus on both her collection and her business acumen. Having only eight weeks to turn her business around, will Claire's intense journey end with an invitation to pitch for a place on the high street?

High Street Dreams is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.

Inside Sport – The Last Taboo

Monday 24 May
11.20-11.50pm BBC ONE (Schedule addition 18 May)

Rugby star Gareth Thomas has revealed he is gay, and a number of other sportspeople from around the world have "come out", this has led some to argue that the professional sporting arena is now a place where homosexual men and women can participate and enjoy the same freedoms as everyone else.

But with the world's most popular game, football, still outwardly 100 per cent heterosexual, journalist Mark Chapman investigates whether we really are seeing the smashing of sport's Last Taboo.

Mark journeys across the UK and Ireland meeting gay and straight sporting figures including Gareth Thomas, Donal Cusack and Martina Navratilova, to find out why it is so difficult for gay athletes to be open about their sexuality, and the consequences if they are.

It's a journey that leaves Mark with some surprising conclusions as to why gay professional sportspeople still prefer to keep their sexuality hidden.

Great British Menu Eps 36-40/45

Monday 24 May
6.30-7.00pm BBC TWO

Three top chefs from London and the South East provide the competition in the final heat to find a chef to cook at a fabulous banquet celebrating the wealth of delicious UK produce, hosted by HRH The Prince of Wales.

Tristan Welch (Launceston Place), Tom Kerridge (The Hand And Flowers) and Anthony Demetre (Arbutus and Wild Honey) are the last of the 24 chefs who have been fiercely battling it out, with the added challenge each week of sourcing ingredients from new suppliers in their region to reflect this year's focus on truly local produce.

Anthony Demetre bases the search for his new suppliers and ingredients at Mottisfont Abbey in Hampshire. As Mottisfont is the home of fly fishing, estate manager Phil Marshall takes Anthony fishing for brown trout, which he features in his fish course of wild brown trout with sweet onion tart. Anthony's starter is breast of lamb with crisp lambs' fry; his main course is slow cooked belly of pork with haslet, rhubarb and beetroot jelly; and his dessert is rosewater scented cheesecake with strawberries and crystallised rose petals.

Tom Kerridge's hunt for produce begins at Waddesdon Manor. Inspired by a duck dish which was served to Queen Victoria on a visit to Waddesdon, Tom goes in search of the perfect duck to use in his main course of slow-cooked duck with duck fat chips and gravy. He visits Richard Waller, the last remaining producer of authentic Aylesbury ducks (used for cooking) in the country. Richard's family have been breeding ducks for over a century and his grandmother's dowry included the ducks. Tom's menu also includes beer-braised oxtail with land cress custard, radish and crisp bone marrow; crayfish Scotch egg with wild garlic mayonnaise; and duck egg sponge with poached gooseberries and lemon thyme ice cream.

Tristan Welch's hunt for ingredients begins at the Polesden Lacey estate in Surrey. On a visit to the nearby Denbies vineyard he meets estate manager Sue Osgood and is inspired to use the herbs that he discovers growing under the vines, in his dessert of sweet herb set cream with sparkling wine. His menu is completed by ham, egg and chips; brown trout, crayfish and watercress pie; and honey slow-roasted duck with orange thyme and baby gem lettuce.

Veteran chef Jason Atherton judges the dishes, awarding marks out of 10 for taste and technical ability, and the chef with the lowest total score leaves the competition on Thursday. The two remaining chefs then cook for the Great British Menu judges – Oliver Peyton, Prue Leith and Matthew Fort – on Friday.

Everything's Rosie Eps 16-20/26

Monday 24 to Friday 28 May
9.35-9.45am CBEEBIES
1.35-1.45pm CBEEBIES

Another week of fun and games with Rosie and her friends begins with something getting up poor Oakley's nose. He can't stop sneezing, rattling Rosie and Raggles' playhouse and sending the poor Little Acorns flying down the hill. When a giant sneeze sends Little Bear flying away on a kite, Rosie is determined to find the cause.

On Tuesday, Saffie plans to invite the Little Acorns over for a sleepover but, as Saffie and Oakley are so far apart, Saffie cannot ask Oakley herself and is relying on Rosie and Raggles driving to and fro in the Twooter. Rosie tries to think of a better solution but Bluebird can't help as she is too busy creating the newest designer nest and Holly and Will are supposed to be helping Big Bear to skip. Will Oakley ever get Saffie's message?

Rosie and Raggles are Looking After Little Bear on Wednesday so that Big Bear can build Little Bear his first scooter as a surprise. But Little Bear proves to be quite a handful and they are all exhausted by the time it is ready. Luckily, Raggles rallies his friends so that Little Bear can test run his first-ever scooter.

There's a new hero in town on Thursday – SuperWill. The only snag is that no one seems to need his help, so Will takes matters into his own hands and flies Raggles's kite into Oakley's branches. He just means to rescue it unharmed but, when the kite is ripped and torn, Will feels terrible. But then Little Bear goes missing and a real hero is required...

Finally this week, Bluebird thinks her nest has been stolen. She accuses Will of taking it, but when she catches Big Bear with a big pile of sticks she's convinced he's the culprit. They all decide to make Bluebird a replacement nest... until her real nest is discovered – exactly where she left it! Forgetful Bluebird!
