Football Focus

Saturday 27 February
12.15-1.00pm BBC ONE

Dan Walker previews the weekend's fixtures and looks at what's been happening in football over the past seven days. This afternoon's games include an intriguing clash between Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge, which sees Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Mancini lock managerial horns for the first time since their Milan derby days.

There is also a look ahead to Wednesday, when England play Egypt in a friendly at Wembley in their first international since the World Cup draw was made. The Egyptians did not qualify for the World Cup but winning their third consecutive Africa Cup of Nations title last month proves they will provide a stern test for Fabio Capello's side. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland also have midweek games, while the Republic of Ireland meet Brazil at the Emirates Stadium in London on Tuesday.

Please note: Due to coverage of Six Nation's Rugby, today's Final Score can be seen on BBC Two.

Six Nations Rugby – England v Ireland

Live event/outside broadcastHigh Definition programme
Saturday 27 February
3.30-6.00pm BBC ONE

John Inverdale is at Twickenham this afternoon where England host current Six Nations champions Ireland in the day's second game.

The Irish have triumphed in five of the last six meetings between these sides, including a hard-fought 14-13 win in Dublin last year. England paid for their indiscipline that day and Martin Johnson's furious reaction to the sin-binning of Danny Care was one of the abiding images of the 2009 Championship.

Eddie Butler and Brian Moore provide the match commentary.

Steve Jones and Claudia Winkleman host as more celebrities pay homage to iconic dance routines

Claudia Winkleman and Steve Jones host the second instalment of the celebrity dance extravaganza as another group of stars pay homage to iconic dance routines in a bid to wow viewers with their moves and get through to the final.

Each week the celebrity acts (a mix of solos, duos and groups) recreate a number of famous dances from music and movie classics, such as Single Ladies (Beyoncé), Greased Lightning (Grease), Smooth Criminal (Michael Jackson), Bad Guys (Bugsy Malone) and Jai Ho (Slumdog Millionaire). They're hoping to rise to the Sport Relief challenge when they take to the floor, and give the performance of their lives in front of a live studio audience and the panel.

After three heats the series culminates in a spectacular final, in which one act will be crowned champion of the dance floor. Each week viewers vote for their favourite dancers to go through to the final, which will see the six finalists dance for their chance to be crowned the Let's Dance For Sport Relief Champion on Saturday 13 March. Proceeds from the voting go to Sport Relief.

Last week saw Katy Brand, Rufus Hound, Willie Thorne and Dennis Taylor take to the dance floor. Others due to take part over the series include comedian Shappi Khorsandi, some of the nation's favourite Grumpy Old Women – Jenny Éclair, Linda Robson, Lesley Joseph and Susie Blake – and footballing greats Peter Shilton and Rodney Marsh.

Comedian Robert Webb was crowned 2009 champion when he wowed the public and judges in last year's grand final with a spectacular dance routine to Flashdance ... What A Feeling. Will tonight's show feature a performance from the Let's Dance Champion of 2010?

It's Kieron's first day and he's desperate to impress Jordan. While dealing with a young diabetic patient who refuses anything other than synthetic insulin, Kieron takes a big risk by covertly administering a normal insulin dose to prevent the girl falling into a coma.

Meanwhile, Jordan overhears Matt's persuasive advances towards a disbelieving Zoe; Alice thinks she's made an emotional breakthrough with Adam when he admits that he is finally going to visit Harry's grave for the first time; and Jeff makes a big announcement to a stunned reception and Dixie.

Match Of The Day

Saturday 27 February
10.30-11.40pm BBC ONE

Gary Lineker introduces all the goals and highlights from today's Premier League fixtures. Former Italy team-mates Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Mancini have faced each other other as managers in the Milan derby and today they met for the first time as Premier League bosses, with Ancelotti's Chelsea hosting Mancini's Manchester City.

Arsenal travelled to Stoke, having lost at the Britannia Stadium both in this league fixture last season and in the FA Cup in January. Portsmouth's win over Burnley in December was their first under Avram Grant – could they do the double today at Turf Moor?

Birmingham versus Wigan promised plenty of goals as the Blues won this fixture 3-2 last season and also prevailed by the same scoreline at the DW Stadium earlier in this campaign. Wolves were at Bolton in the day's other top-flight game.

My Life – Young Mayor Of Newham Ep 2/6

Saturday 27 February
11.30am-12.00noon BBC TWO

Blue Peter's Andy Akinwolere narrates the second programme in CBBC's My Life documentary strand which follows the lives of extraordinary children from across Britain, each with their own unique and personal story to tell. Today's programme follows the campaign to elect the third young mayor of Newham.

Each young mayor in Britain presides over a youth council and Newham's has a budget of £25,000 to spend in their borough on youth initiatives. They are also on hand to advise, enlighten and influence the adults who run the borough on youth issues.

Newham will be home to the 2012 Olympics and it is the most ethnically diverse district in the UK and has more young people under 18 per head of the population than anywhere else in the UK, according to Newham Council's website. With so many youngsters living in the borough the competition to become the next young mayor is fierce. In this film, 56 hopefuls start the election trail and put their manifestos online to allow students to vote for their favourite candidate.

They are whittled down to 15 who have to start campaigning in earnest as the day of the election draws near. None of the 15 will miss out as they will make up the youth council with one candidate taking the lead as the young mayor.

My Life follows Rosie, Mariam and Adil as they battle it out to be selected and captures the final nerve-shredding moments as the 7,000 votes are counted and the next young mayor receives his or her chain of office.

The other films in the My Life strand are Billboard Kids, which tells the story of four children with facial disfigurements who have been chosen by a charity to be the figureheads of a new poster campaign to help challenge perceptions of facial disfigurement; Karate Kids, which features three disabled friends who have embraced martial arts at their school, transforming their mobility and their confidence; My Dad In Prison, which examines what it is like to be a child with a father in prison and follows the work of an innovative new prison homework club; and, finally, Children Of The Road, which follows a group of Irish traveller children at one of the biggest traveller sites in the country.
