THIS weekend's schedule may be all about King Charles' Coronation but there's plenty to watch once the celebrations are over.
In fact, The Sun's TV Mag has got a whole host of options for you to enjoy over the next seven days.
Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Okay, let’s start with the bad: the irrepressible force of nature that is Christine Quinn won’t be returning to the Oppenheim Group office in this sixth season.
We you’re going to miss her scheming and scowling. The good news is: everyone else is back, hurrah! Chrishell, Mary, Heather, Amanza, Davina, Chelsea and owners Brett and Jason will also be joined by some new faces, including Nicole Young, who’s actually worked for the Oppenheim Group for more than 10 years but hasn’t felt comfortable appearing on camera, until now.
So sit back, relax and enjoy another blast of bitching, bonding, relationship dramas and maybe even some sales of swanky Hollywood properties.
During the Nineties and Noughties, blonde bombshell Anna was everywhere – magazine covers, fashion catwalks, movies and music videos. Gossip pages were filled with stories about her too, thanks to a surprise marriage to 89-year-old billionaire J. Howard Marshall, the shock death of her 20-year-old son Daniel from a drug overdose and an alleged addiction to prescription medications.
Tragically, in 2007, Anna’s dramatic life came to a premature end, when she died from an accidental drug overdose, aged just 39. This new documentary combines never-seen-before footage, home movies and interviews with those who knew her but have never spoken out before, to reveal the real woman behind the headlines.

In this new series, former President Barack Obama investigates the different ways in which we find meaning in what we do for a living, and how our experiences and struggles in the workplace connect us all.
Along the way he’ll spend time with ordinary people at every level, from service jobs right up to the boardroom, to find out what their work means to them. The result is an intimate and surprising portrait of people’s everyday lives.
PRIME VIDEO Hapless – Available from Monday
Anyone who’s watched the first series of Hapless will understand why this cringe-filled comedy has been dubbed the British version of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
It follows the day-to-day disasters of north-London freelance journalist Paul (Tim Downie), who has an unfortunate habit of saying exactly what’s on his mind, however hurtful, misjudged or offensive.
Even the most straight-forward social situation is likely to spiral into something truly embarrassing for Paul, who’s aided and abetted by his best friend Simon (Josh Howie) and sweary sister Naomi (Jeany Spark).
The second series features guest stars including Sally Phillips, Ronni Ancona and Linda Robson, and finds Paul crashing his awkward way through situations like going on a blind date with a blind woman, joining a gym and replacing his toilet seat. Painfully funny.
The Never Ending Murder – Available from Wednesday
On the 14 December 1991, 18-year-old mother-of-one Nicola Payne went missing while walking the short distance from her boyfriend’s home to her parents’ house in Coventry.
Fast-forward 32 years and, after an epic investigation, several arrests, a court case and two acquittals, Nicola remains missing, and no body has ever been found.
This documentary series shines a new investigative light on Nicola’s disappearance and includes interviews with family, including her father John and brother Nigel, and two detectives who previously worked on the case.
The timing of the documentary is particularly poignant as Nicola’s mother, Marilyn, died in March, having never given up hope that she would find her daughter. An affecting, perplexing true-crime series.
The Three Drinkers In Cognac – Available from Thursday
Three, it’s said, is a crowd, but when you’re checking out the best beverages, food and culture on the planet, the more the merrier. Yes, it’s the return of The Three Drinkers – otherwise known as drinks journalists and connoisseurs Aidy Smith and Helena Nicklin, plus a guest drinker – and this series they’re headed to the glorious, picturesque French region of Cognac, where they’ll sample that famous spirit and learn how it’s produced.
Joined by Eddy Temple-Morris and Eulanda Shead-Osagiede, they’ll also check out local gin makers, tuck into some regional culinary specialities and try their hands at everything from watersports and beekeeping to chocolate-crafting and shoe-making.
PARAMOUNT+ The Stallone Family – Available from Thursday
His late mother Jackie was one of the greatest Celebrity Big Brother housemates of all time, but Sylvester Stallone has stayed away from reality TV – until now.

How does Sly cope in a female-dominated household? Is that really Rocky grooming the family feline in the trailer? And what is Al Pacino and Dolph Lundgren’s involvement during their series cameos?
All – and more – will be revealed in what promises to be the most intriguing celebrity fly-on-the-wall series since The Kardashians.
No Escape – Available from Thursday
From The Beach to The Serpent, many a tense tale's been told where young Westerners discover that paradise can quickly become a nightmare.
Now here's , based on Lucy Clarke’s bestselling novel, which sees best friends Lana (Abigail Lawrie, Tin Star) and Kitty (Rhianne Barret, The Outlaws) flee their lives in the UK. Hopping aboard a romantic yacht, The Blue, with an enigmatic crew sailing through Southeast Asia sounds ideal – until events turn deadly.
Filmed in Thailand and with a cast including Jay Ryan (It: Chapter Two) and Susie Porter (Wentworth Prison), this looks set to be an addictive thriller, despite the familiar-sounding set up.
APPLE TV+ High Desert – Available from Wednesday
Grief can make people do some unlikely things. Take semi-recovering drug addict Peggy (Patricia Arquette) – after the death of her beloved mother she finds herself needing to get a job to help pay the mortgage.
So after realising she has a talent for deduction, she decides to become a private investigator, convincing washed-up local PI Bruce (Brad Garrett) to give her a chance. Cue a chaotic, funny and regularly heart-warming investigation into the potential theft of a famous painting.
Featuring Matt Dillon as Peggy’s roguish small-time crook ex-hubby Denny, Rupert Friend as an eccentric newsreader turned mystic and Christine Taylor as Peggy’s stiff sister Dianne, it’s star-studded, eccentric and very enjoyable.
Stillwater – Available from Friday
The third series of this charming and calming kids’ animation is here to pacify any grumpy, grizzly pre-schoolers you might know. Life can sometimes seem confusing and challenging for siblings Karl, Addy and Michael.
But when things get tough, at least they can call upon their next-door neighbour Stillwater – a wise and patient panda – to help them find answers to their questions and solutions to their problems.

AMAZON FREEVEE Primo – Available from Friday
We’re not exactly short of coming-of-age comedy-dramas on TV these days, but this new series is fresh, funny and different enough to stand out from the crowd.
It follows the formative adventures of 16-year-old Rafa (Ignacio Diaz-Silverio), who spends his days juggling high school, falling in love and trying to be the first person in his Mexican-American family to go to college.
He’s also got a pretty full-on life at home, where he’s brought up by his single mum Drea and his five overbearing uncles. Filled with warmth and off-the-wall humour, it should come as little surprise that the series is produced by Michael Schur, the man behind shows like Parks & Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Good Place.
DISNEY+ White Men Can’t Jump – Available from Friday
The ongoing rush to remake as many classic movies as possible – rather than, say, maybe try to come up with some new ideas – continues.
Yes, forget the 1992 original version of sports comedy White Men Can’t Jump, which starred Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson, because there’s a fresh, updated take to enjoy. In this incarnation, rapper Jack Harlow stars as Jeremy, a gifted basketball hustler who makes money by tricking people into thinking he can’t play.
But the stakes get bigger when he teams up with another player Kamal (Sinqua Walls) in the hope of winning a lucrative basketball tournament. And while it was always going to be a tough ask for the two leads to match the charisma of Wesley and Woody, they definitely give it a shot.
The Chi – Available from Wednesday
Chicago’s South Side provides the backdrop once again as the fifth season of gritty but heartfelt drama The Chi drops. If you’ve never seen it before, the show centres on a group of complex and diverse young characters linked by their location and the struggles that life regularly throws in their paths.
The new season finds Emmett (Jacob Latimore) and Tiff (Hannah Hall) growing apart as Tiff becomes closer to Rob. Meanwhile, Kevin (Alex R. Hibbert) discovers love where he least expects it, Jemma and Jake adjust to life as a couple, Jada moves forward post-cancer and Trig weighs up a political run. Raw and riveting.
