Its first run earlier this year performed relatively sluggishly. But the BBC have a lot invested in Nick Grimshaw – they’ll be hoping for slightly more from this returning panel show. But maybe the format is the problem. There are just so many panel show and so little distinguishing them from each other. Maybe commissioners need to think about an altogether new delivery mechanism for their talent.
Grimshaw’s a likeable enough character and he’ll be rejoined by Rochell Humes and Melvin O’Doom for this survey of life’s small irritations. But much like the subject matter, there’s just something inessential about this scenario.
John Bell & Croyden
After two centuries of dishing out cures to Londoners’ maladies, age started to wither this venerable pharmacy: cue a multimillion-pound revamp that balances an imposing heritage with a new range of products. Intriguing bits of antique paraphernalia are dotted among of-the-moment wellness fads – JB&C houses a royal prescription book, so you can gawp at Queen Victoria’s beauty secrets (cold cream and Coraline toothpaste, FYI). The store is also home to a globetrotting selection of fancy brands, from French cult favourites including Embryolisse and La Roche Posay to under-the-radar Antipodean suncare. You might come in looking for blister plasters, but you’ll leave with a bathroom-cabinet’s worth of loot. As featured in the 100 best shops in London
