    Scott says: “The Masked Singer, but for housing”

    “This show is somehow great and terrible at exactly the same time. It's essentially The Masked Singer, but for housing. The joy is not just trying to work out who is the real owner of the property, it's hearing all the improvised lies the others make up in a panic to convince us that they are the owner.

    "A number of obstacles are thrown at them, such as 'this is your husband, act if you are married.' It's made weirder by the fact that they cannot respond to all of the lies, so they usually look uncomfortable from the whole affair.

    “The best bit is that the…

    Hayley says: "This one won't hold your attention"

    “No it's not a must watch. It's fine but it's nothing special. It's that basic ITV detective drama thing with all the usual clichés, which is not inherently a bad thing. I usually love all that exhausted detective stuff (I could watch Nicola Walker being exhausted in The Unforgotten forever) but this one won’t hold your attention, or at least it didn't hold mine. It’s an OK watch if you're just sitting around, eating a pizza and playing with…

    Scott says "A well paced, really interesting thriller"

    “I really enjoyed this. The plot is ludicrous, but that's very much its appeal. The heart of the story is about what happens if someone has been murdered whilst you were asleep next to them, but you have no idea how. What follows is panic, as flight attendant Cassie Bowden (Kaley Cuoco) flees the scene and the country. She also does everything wrong, taking vital evidence with her. I know that sounds like quite a dark premise for a show, but it's a dark comedy.

    “I think it is a really well paced, really interesting thriller. There are quite a…
