Haven't seen 2018 yet. I've seen last year's with Prue Leith, who I enjoy just as much as Mary Berry. Don't tell me any spoilers!

Emirates NBD. Their cards give you a lot of discounts at restaurants around Dubai.

Standard Chartered. Best cashback card is the Platinum Mastercard - shopping, school fees, dewa, etisalat, salik, speeding fines
Depending how much you spend on it, of course. Also, their Xtrasaver is giving 2%, no restrictions.
Customer service can be pants, but nothing unique there.
