Game Of Thrones Series 2: Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister

There's a little something for everyone in this week's TV picks, with the new series of epic fantasy programme Game Of Thrones nestling next to some comedy from both sides of the Atlantic and the return of a reality TV favourite.

On top of that, we've gone just a bit intellectual and plumped for something from BBC Four - captivating interview series Mark Lawson Talks To - so that we've got all bases covered. Read on for the full rundown...

Game of Thrones: Monday at 9pm on Sky Atlantic
The surprise hit of 2011 returns, with new episodes of HBO's fantasy drama reaching UK screens just one day after airing in the US! Ned Stark is long gone, but his son Robb (Richard Madden) is determined to get revenge against the Lannisters in season premiere 'The North Remembers'. Meanwhile, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) faces a harrowing journey and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) continues his trek beyond the Wall with the Night's Watch. We've missed Game of Thrones and boy, is it good to have it back!

Made In Chelsea: Monday at 10pm on E4
Totes amaze! Everyone's favourite poor little rich kids are back for a third series this week and they've brought a new friend along, studly entrepreneur Richard Dinan. The premiere sees Caggie ignoring Spencer after their Christmas love-in, a confrontation at a party to celebrate Gabilicious's breast reduction (dear Lord) and the arrival of a potential romantic interest for Jamie. The synopsis alone sounds more interesting than the entire last series of TOWIE, so crack open the champers and just enjoy the ride.

Morgan Spurlock's New Britannia: Monday at 10.10pm on Sky Atlantic
Stay tuned to Sky Atlantic once Game of Thrones has ended - there's a new topical comedy show from Super Size Me filmmaker Morgan Spurlock that we think is worth a watch! New Britannia has been described by Spurlock himself as a "celebratory criticism of all things British" - each episode will explore (and poke fun at) a different aspect of British culture. Episode one is all about 'Foreigners' and sees Morgan joined by comedians Ruby Wax, Andrew Maxwell and Shappi Khorsandi.

Mark Lawson Talks to Mark Gatiss: Tuesday at 10.50pm on BBC Four
The quality of BBC Four's Mark Lawson Talks To... series is very much dependant on the calibre of guest, but you couldn't hope for a more urbane, witty and charming interviewee than Mark Gatiss. The comedian, actor, writer, documentary maker and all-round renaissance man covers the length and breadth of his career in an entertaining and insightful 60 minutes, discussing everything from smash hit drama Sherlock to film disaster Sex Lives of the Potato Men. Well worth a watch.

Benidorm: Friday at 9pm on ITV1
We're just as much in love with the Benidorm gang as when the holiday began five years ago, so it'll be sad to see them pack up their bags for another series. At least the finale's a good 'un, as Joyce (Sherrie Hewson) becomes convinced that a new guest (Kate O'Mara of Doctor Who and Dynasty) is a hotel inspector and attempts to make sure their stay goes without a hitch. Suffice to say, she fails. We've also heard that there's a bit of an emotional karaoke-based finale, so come prepared to be touched as well as amused.
