1/ Walk on the Wild Side

When?
BBC1, Saturday 5.50pm

Why should I watch it?
Do you like watching jaw dropping natural history footage? Do you like comedians? And finally do you like watching animals, which aren't animated, with dubbed regional accents? If you don't you'll probably find Walk on the Wild Side funny anyway. Sure it's not a new idea, but boy have they executed the tried and tested 'talking animals' routine well. During the half hour programme you'll get acquainted with the marmot suffering from inoffensive touretts (tap in Alan, Alan, Steve, Steve into youtube) the panda (Stephen Fry) full of his own self importance, and maverick eagle cop Jack Hawk who's forever trying to get his beak into criminal, Eddie Lizzard.

Comedian Jason Manford and friends, plus special guest Stephen Fry, do the voices and they are funny, but without the animals they are NOTHING. Brilliant hangover comedy that will leave you giggling for hours on end. Because when you're hungover everything is funnier.

2/ Celebrity Wife Swap

When?
Channel 4, Sunday 8pm

Why should I watch it?
Woah woah woah woah. Hold off from scrolling down to the next paragraph, just a moment. Sure, Celebrity Wife Swap is not on FHM's usual weekend playlist, but just wait. Last week's episode documents Ron Atkinson, aka Big Ron, shacking up with someone that is not 60 year old, domestic lovely, Maggie, and is in fact Olympic gold medallist Tessa Sanderson. We all know that Ron made a serious faux pas which ended his commentating career in 2004; he failed to observe the red light blinking next to 'On Air' when he decided to have a good old racist rant at Chelsea player Desailly.

Lucky for us, he's now been reduced to reality TV stardom, so you can watch the former football player, turned manager, turned pundit, turned pariah of the sporting world, huff, puff and have a good old groan, at his lippy temporary wife, who takes none of Atkinson's buffoonery. Do enjoy the moment when Ron squirms in front of the camera, after being asked about his life changing racist remarks, all the while trying not to offend the first black woman ever to win an Olympic gold medal. It's terribly cringey.

Quote to watch out for: Ron barks at Tessa after being told to mop the kitchen floor. "If you don't shut up I'll ring you out really dry".

3/ Athletics World Championships

When?
BBC2, Sunday 9am

Why should I watch it?
Because we only won a gold medal in the heptathlon. Jessica Ennis is a bloody amazing athlete and she absolutely bossed it at the Athletics World Championships in Berlin. Just 12 months ago, the Sheffield beauty - isn't that an oxymoron or something? - suffered a triple fracture to her right foot. At 22 she thought it was over. Kabloowi. But not so. From her graceful hurdling technique to her jaw dropping shot put throw, she really did Blighty proud.

She isn't, however, the fastest human being on the planet. That title goes to, yes he's a bit of a twat, but he can get away with it because he's bloody brilliant, Usain Bolt. He smashed his own world record by crossing the line, properly this time, after just 9.58 seconds. Sure, but could he beat FHM's chubby triumvirate? Apart from that, it's just half naked females in the best shape of their lives playing with long poles, heavy balls, and running about very fast. Hmmmm. We hope they've forgotten their sports bras.
