The BBC's brand new Saturday night entertainment show Tumble promises to be a goodie. Ten celebrities, from Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding to Mr Motivator, Amelle Berrabah to John Partridge, will be vaulting, tumbling and flipping head-over-heels in a bid to win the public’s votes. In the first edition of the show, the celebs will have to give one of two routines: five will do acrobatic floor shows and the other five will perform on the aerial hoop. If you're a gymnastics or circus fan then this is just the show for you!

The Simpsons, SKy1, 7.30pm

The much debated Simpsons LEGO mash-up makes its debut tonight on Sky1. And as Homie says himself, “It’s not selling out! It’s co-branding! It’s co-branding!” Entitled Brick Like Me, it airs tonight on Sky1 at 7.30pm and is the 550th episode of the long-running cartoon comedy. Homer introduces us to a Springfield from an alternative universe, one where everything and everyone is assembled from the popular plastic building blocks. However, he is troubled by memories of a pre-Lego existence and he can’t shake the feeling that all is not right . . .  Does it look like a classic episode to you or has the shark been well and truly jumped?
