TV OF THE WEEK

RuPaul's Drag Race star Courtney Act gets her first big presenting gig on brand new bisexual dating show The Bi Life and of course is our TV of the Week as it sounds totally unmissable!

It's more about love and romance than Love Island (where they're all competing for money really!) and should be a cute bi 101 for the uninitiated. This plus The Bisexual on Wednesdays 10pm on Channel 4 and it's a big week for being bi on TV.
