Channel 4 Daytime kicks off autumn with a bang!

Phil Spencer: Secret Agent

It’s a daytime bonanza on Channel 4 this October, as a brand new property series, three popular celebrity spin-offs and a special twist to a daytime classic all begin to make those autumn days brighter.

Channel 4 favourite Phil Spencer kicks things off making his home in the daytime slot with brand new property series, Phil Spencer: Secret Agent. Coming to the aid of homeowners across the UK trapped in properties they just can’t sell, Phil will act as a secret agent to work with sellers and buyers in order to help get the market moving again…

The most famous coach on television gears up for another outing for the second series of Celebrity Coach Trip, with legendary tour guide Brendan Sheerin and ten new famous faces, all set for a two-week romp around the Mediterranean. With an ex MP, an X-Factor finalist, a former TV entertainer and Big Brother alumni comprising this series’ eclectic bunch, it is set to be the most entertaining series yet.

Celebrity Come Dine with Me makes a welcome return to daytime with two weeks of culinary showdowns. From 10 October, five famous Come Dine with Me newbies lay down their gastronomic gauntlets in a bid to win the charity cash prize.

Then, just when you thought it was safe to go back into the kitchen, the most calamitous celebrity hosts return on 17 October for a very special week of second chance dinner parties. Cue costume changes, tantrums, dubious cooking and a Titanic sized pavlova.

Finally, for the first time ever in the programme’s history, Channel 4 will air live shows of the popular game show Deal or No Deal. At the helm of this live extravaganza will of course be Noel Edmonds, and as always the dastardly Banker will be keeping an eye on proceedings endeavouring to thwart the attempts of the contestants to win big.
