Best on the Box highlights for Saturday November 30th.


ONE TO WATCH: STRICTLY COME DANCING, BBC ONE at 7.10pm

For one weekend only Borehamwood becomes Broadway… it’s the all-singing, all-dancing Strictly musical special! Craig ‘Dolly’ Revel-Horwood dons his glad-rags and leads the judges, pros and the celebs in a group dance to a musical medley from Hello, Dolly! Craig dragging up a wonderful two-fingers to those 200 viewers who recently complained to Ofcom about the two-male dancers partnering together for a performance.

With the final now only weeks away, the competition heats up as Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman welcome the Beeb’s ballroom celebrities back to the floor.

Each of the pairs will perform a host of dancing routines from hit musicals in a bid to impress judges Shirley Ballas, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse.

The voting lines will then open and it is down to the public to save their favourite couple from the feared dance-off.

THE X FACTOR: CELEBRITY FINAL – ITV, STV and UTV at 7.10pm

It’s The X Factor: Celebrity Final, if you care – and we know it seems most don’t. Anyway for those who do tonight the remaining celebrities take to the stage in the hope of impressing the audience at home and the panel of judges one last time.

Over the past seven weeks we’ve seen stars from the worlds of music, film, sport, television and social media come together to compete to win a life-changing recording contract. This series we’ve seen Simon mentoring the Groups, Louis the Unders and Nicole the Overs, with host Dermot O’Leary overseeing proceedings and keeping the judges in check along the way.

Only one act can ultimately be crowned our champion, but who will it be?

ATLANTICS, now streaming on NETFLIX

After a group of unpaid construction workers disappears at sea one night in search of a better life abroad, the women they have left behind in Dakar are overwhelmed with a mysterious fever.

Ada, 17, secretly grieves for her love Souleiman, one of the departed workers, but she has been promised to another man. After a fire breaks out on her wedding night, a young policeman is sent to investigate the crime.

Little does he know that the aggrieved workers have come back as haunting, possessive spirits. While many of them seek vengeance for their unpaid labor, Souleiman has come back for a different purpose — to be with his Ada one last time.

LIVE RUGBY UNION: WALES V BARBARIANS, CHANNEL 4 at 2.15pm

Former Wales head coach Warren Gatland returns to the Principality Stadium to say farewell, but this time as coach of visiting team The Barbarians.

So it falls to Wales’ incoming head coach, Wayne Pivac, to make a good impression on the fans against his predecessor’s side. There’s no pressure there, then. And, if that weren’t Welsh interest enough, world-renowned referee Nigel Owens will be keeping the players of both sides honest in his first adjudication of a match involving his home nation.

This is also Wales’ first appearance since their run to the semi-finals of the World Cup, so the fans will be out in force to show their appreciation for their star players.

Lee McKenzie presents, Ed Jackson reports, with Nolli Waterman and Shane Williams providing commentary.

CASUALTY, BBC ONE at 9.10pm

Rash can’t stand it when Mason saves the day, Charlie is shocked to learn that Duffy can’t look after herself, and Rosa realises her mum has lied to David.
