Welcome to the All That Glitters edition of Cluedo where the result is always Solange Azagury-partridge in the Indoor Judging Conservatoire with a Statement Necklace.

It’s Alternative Materials Week, which is always the best week of any design based competition! Let crafty Hell reign!

Glow Up Series 3, Episode 1: Soap Opera Bruise

Hands up if you’ve ever tasted setting powder.

I’m so glad they’ve managed to find a way to safely film Glow Up as well as putting in measures to make it that much more inclusive, which has of course angered certain branches of Mumsnet but we can only count that as a win.

All That Glitters, Series 1, Episode 1: Eternal Doom Mistress

I think we can safely guess that Katherine Ryan’s decision to do this show hinged entirely on being able to wave around the bangle measuring tool.

All That Glitters is finally here and it is very much putting my inability to spell the word “jewellery” correctly to the test as well as the fact sawing sounds put my teeth on edge.

Blog Update: Posting Schedule

Just a short bit of housekeeping ahead of a particularly congested TV schedule! As you might have known both All That Glitters and Sewing Bee start this week and I am planning on recapping both of them. The slight hitch is that the MasterChef Finale airs tomorrow at 8pm, the same night as Sewing Bee. I pride myself on offering next day recaps but I’m not sure I’ll manage a full MasterChef Finale and Sewing Bee recap on Thursday so for this week I will be prioritising the MasterChef Finale with Sewing Bee going up on Friday. I feel like that’s the fairest option.

You would think that would be the only thing but alas, The BBC have apparently decided that it’s The TV Power Hour and have announced that Glow Up, the makeup brand of their competition formula, airs on iPlayer on Tuesdays and I wanted to recap that too – the recaps of Glow Up will probably only go up on Fridays because I think I’ll be prioritising All That Glitters and Sewing Bee.

So, to reiterate, once we’re over the MasterChef hump:

Wednesdays: All That Glitters Recaps.
Thursday: Sewing Bee Recaps.
Friday: Glow Up Recaps.

This is permitting that The BBC or Channel 4 don’t surprise us with a series of Britain’s Next Top Cobbler.
