The BBC's centenary continues with How the BBC Began, it's semi-final time on The Voice, there's more Angela Scanlon's Ask Me Anything, Michael McIntyre's The Wheel returns for a new run, and there's a bit of a Coldplay night on BBC Two . . .

TV maths geek and Countdown star Rachel Reilly joins Angela and Jason on the couch and tells them about her favourite tipple, and reveals her PTSD experience since appearing on Strictly Come Dancing.
