The Apprentice

Million Dollar Wedding Planner

Thursday 9pm – 10pm, BBC2

This documentary goes behind the scenes of the exclusive world of Lelian Chew  – organiser of weddings for the super-rich in the Far East. Such is the exclusivity of her services, she only takes on 10 ceremonies a year, each with an average cost of $1million each! It is not unusual to find exquisite dresses designed by multiple designers, bespoke Cartier jewellery or hundreds of thousands worth of flowers at weddings she plans. But her personal and tender touch in balancing the requirements of traditional Chinese marriage customs and the wants of young, wealthy aristocrats is really what makes her stand out.


My Posh Date

Thursday 10pm – 11.05pm, Channel 5

This one off show sets out to understand if love can bridge the opposite ends of the British class system.

However, this tie will be a much tougher test for Gareth Souhtgate’s men – the hosts have won both group ties at home.
