Celebrity Coach Trip: Monday at 5pm on Channel 4
A rather random bunch of (mostly) familiar figures join loveable Brendan for a two-week expedition around the Mediterranean. Sure to attract the most attention is controversial ex-entertainer Michael Barrymore, who's partnered it up with his Strike It Rich producer Maurice Leonard. Former MP Lembit Opik, horse racing pundit John McCririck and X Factor's Wagner are among the others along for the ride. First stop on this explosive trip: Monaco!
The Vampire Diaries: Tuesday at 9pm on ITV2
If you're a fan of The Vampire Diaries, you're probably already counting down the hours until the show returns for its third season. If not, you're missing out on one of the most inventive, thrilling shows on the box - no joke. After a shaky start, The Vampire Diaries really came into its own and is full of twists, shocks and sexual tension. In this season premiere, Stefan's still off on a rampage with Klaus, but Elena's determined to save him. And Jeremy's got to deal with those ghostly visitors who are hanging around... Brilliant stuff.

Southland: Thursday at 9pm on More4
Hurrah, Southland is back! Yes, yes, it's another US cop show, but Southland is one that's actually worth watching (it's weird to think that Ben McKenzie used to be The OC's Ryan instead of a Los Angeles police officer). In this season premiere, Lydia's got a new partner, John and Ben end up in a shootout, and Nate and Sammy are working on a double homicide. Stunning and horrifying in equal measure, Southland is most definitely worth your time.

Spy: Friday at 8.30pm on Sky1
Sky's still going all out with its original commissions, and here's the latest - Spy. The show stars Darren Boyd (who you might recognise from Green Wing, Whites or Dirk Gently) as a single dad - and a bit of a loser - called Tim. Unfortunately for national security, though, Tim bungles into landing a job with MI5. But perhaps he should be less worried about his targets and more about his bizarre boss (played by My Family's Robert Lindsay). Something to check out.

The Comic Strip Presents... The Hunt for Tony Blair: Friday at 9pm on Channel 4
Legendary comedy troupe The Comic Strip returns for the first time in six years with this political satire / film noir spoof. New addition Stephen Mangan plays Blair, on the run from two coppers (Robbie Coltrane and James Buckley) after being accused of murder. Mangan is terrific in the title role, as a frustrated Blair keeps bumping people off - all the while trying to do the right thing! The likes of Jennifer Saunders (as a saucy Maggie Thatcher), Harry Enfield and Ross Noble also star.
