It’s Easter, which means a four-day weekend for many of us. The weather is going to be rubbish, so ED! is giving you all permission to stay on the sofa and indulge yourself with loads of chocolate and top telly – there’s plenty to tune into (for once!).

Good Friday sees the end of a bad, BAD man as soap’s most notorious serial killer finally comes a cropper, following his looooooooong reign of terror…

We’re not sure how we feel about Phelan being bumped off on the same day as Jesus – hopefully this is one TV villain we won’t see resurrected in three days!

Wife Eileen finally learns the truth about his murderous ways, but as she confronts him, both their lives are in danger… Miss Friday’s Coronation Street, ITV, 7.30pm and 8.30pm at your peril.

When Saturday comes, treat yourself to a takeaway in your belly AND on your telly, as Declan Donnelly flies solo for the first time in his presenting career.

Saturday Night Takeaway, ITV, 7pm, minus Ant McPartlin, will reportedly feature extra from supporting presenters Scarlett Moffatt and Stephen Mulhern.

There’s the return of an old classic on Easter Sunday, as Mel and Sue – er, resurrect, The Generation Game, BBC1, 8pm.

The show – previously presented by Bruce Forsyth and Larry Grayson – sees guests from Martin Kemp to TOWIE’s Gemma and Arg getting up to all kinds of mischief.

If you’re in the mood for a touch of wildlife with a side order of fluffy, Attenborough’s Wonder of Eggs, Saturday, BBC2, 8pm, sees the great Sir David explore the evolution and variation of different species’ eggs. It’s, um, eggsellent.
