Home   /   Which show are you destined to watch this spring based on your zodiac sign?

By Katrin Johannessen

In these times lockdown good streaming options are paramount. These shows are all free to stream on BBC iPlayer. Have a look at which show the stars have in store for you.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Bats, Balls and Bradford Girls

There is nobody who can tell you what to do, and if they don’t know just yet, then they will soon find out. You do everything off your own bat. There is also nobody who can tell the girls from this show, that they can’t start a cricket team. The show’s combination of sports and determination is right up your energetic and athletic alley.  

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Ready Steady Cook

Sweet sleepy bull, it might be lazy to recommend a food programme for you, but the hungry Taurus is a cliche for a reason. Don’t fight it, just snuggle up with some snacks and a warm blanket and watch some nice people cook.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)


On the one hand you are quick witted, curious and chatty; or in other words a big gossip. Newsflash, having to mediate between your two personalities, has really honed your communication skills! Stay updated and get the latest. You are the zodiac’s special correspondent.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Eating with My Ex

Your sign is symbolised by the crab. You may be hard and cold on the inside but mushy and delicious on the inside. You are a true romantic and to be fair I could just eat you up. You have a love of nostalgia which means you could have a hard time getting over your exes. It might be best to live vicariously through the people on this show instead of attempting their stunts at home. 

Leo (July 23 – August 22)


You are ruled by the sun and you certainly shine like the sun itself. People might accuse you of being selfish and dramatic, but what would the world be without some drama and razzle-dazzle? Not much can compare to you in terms of sheer sparkle, but if anything comes close it must be the glitz and glamour of old school musicals. 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Snow Animals

The planet might be doomed, but just take your anxious mind of it for one evening. I know it feels like without you everything would just fall apart, but you should treat yourself for once. Your love for nature and animals will be truly gratified by this wide cast of charismatic animals.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

The Split

Symbolised by the scales, people might have called you indecisive or even accused you of always sitting on the fence. However, deep down you know that you are only weighing each option in order to be fair and just. If everyone in the judicial system was like you, then justice would always be blind. Daydream about that while watching this legal drama. 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Murder 24/7

Scorpio, you are the sign of death (..and rebirth and sex, but let’s forget about that for a second). Not many can match you in terms of persistence and sheer focus. You also have a curiosity for all things morbid. All these qualities combined make you the perfect person to solve any crime. What could be better for you than spending an evening acting as an armchair detective?

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Race Across the World

You love travel and adventure. Being a student (read: poor) and being a compulsive gambler might not always mix so well with this fact. But fret no more. Now for the low cost of nothing, only the tv licence, you can travel across the whole world. 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Money For Nothing

You’re a hustler baby. Not only are you ambitious, but unlike other signs, you also work hard. Some might call you boring, but just wait, you will have the last laugh. As the most resourceful sign of the zodiac, if there is anyone that can make money out of nothing, it has to be you. 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)


It’s the Age of Aquarius. You are all about the collective and rebelling against authority. People call you weird, but honestly you thrive on that. The strange and obscure facts you’ll pick up watching QI, will impress both friends and strangers, and isn’t that a great reason to watch any programme?

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Sex, Drugs and Oil Paint

As the last or oldest sign of the zodiac you contain all the other signs within you. That is a lot to carry for two little fish, which might be why you are known as the sign of escapism. You might do this through drugs, sex or anything that floats your boat. But at your healthiest, you channel it through creativity and art. A show about all of them should not make you feel like a fish out of water.
