C4, 9pm There’s elec­tion fever at Har­rop Fold School when head teacher Mr Povey an­nounces the first-ever search for a head girl and boy.

Talk­ing to the Year 10 stu­dents, he ex­plains: “This is about the best per­son for the job. The past doesn’t mat­ter, your fu­ture mat­ters.”

But there are so­cial is­sues to con­sider. Self-con­fessed geek Re­becca won­ders if she will be made fun of for ap­ply­ing. She’s go­ing up against Chelci, who is des­per­ate for the job. Mean­while, there’s ten­sion be­tween long-time ri­vals Josh and Leon. Josh says: “Leon wants to win, I want to win. That’s ri­valry at its best.”

But as the can­di­dates are be­ing short­listed, Girhan throws his hat into the ring and could be the dark horse – he’s Mr Pop­u­lar.

They all have to en­dure a rig­or­ous in­ter­view se­lec­tion process and a nail-bit­ing live de­bate in front of ev­ery­one.

Watch­ing the teach­ers rally to push these pupils to achieve their best is great telly, and you’ll be root­ing for the stu­dents. REV­E­LA­TION Stephen Moyer
