So You Think You Can Dance

Live event/outside broadcast
Saturday 16 April
7.10-8.10pm BBC ONE

Cat Deeley and judges Nigel Lythgoe, Arlene Phillips, Louise Redknapp and Sisco Gomez continue the search to find Britain's favourite dancer with the fourth programme – and the first live edition – of So You Think You Can Dance.

The finalists have been whittled down from thousands of entrants and the dancers need to go all out to make that crucial first impression. With all 20 finalists showcasing their talents and proving to the public that they've got what it takes, the heat is on. The Meet The Top 20 show sees contestants dancing in a curtain-raising group extravaganza in which they are grouped with dancers sharing their specialism. Routines include contemporary, hip-hop, jazz and Broadway, and there's the chance to see the boys and the girls in separate routines.

Ultimately it's the public who will decide which dancer is worthy of realising their dreams of dancing in Hollywood and who deserves to take home the cash prize at the end of the competition. But for this weekend only, none of the dancers will face the prospect of elimination, so there's a chance for viewers to sit back and relax as they get to know a bit more about them.

Casualty – A Real Shame

Saturday 16 April
9.00-9.50pm BBC ONE

Jay receives his cancer results and Jordan and Miriam go head to head in a popularity contest, as the medical drama continues.

Jay's results have arrived but he is too scared to open them. Receiving an irate call from Charlie about his lack of commitment to Ruth, Jay decides to visit her. Ruth wants to know where he has been but Jay is unable to tell her the truth. Eventually, Miriam persuades Jay to let her open the results for him and she is delighted to reveal that he has the all clear. Perhaps now he can confess to everybody what's been bothering him for the past few weeks.

It's time for the board to decide who should be the sole Clinical Lead and Jordan is angry to learn that they will take the staff's appraisals of him and Miriam into account. Jordan knows that he won't win in a popularity contest and behaves like a bear with a sore head all day. With the results revealed at the end of the day, will frosty Jordan or people-friendly Miriam prevail?

Jay is played by Ben Turner, Jordan by Michael French, Miriam by Cheryl Campbell, Charlie by Derek Thompson and Ruth by Georgia Taylor.
