Image: PA Wire/PA Images rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

The Graham Norton Show (BBC One, 10.35pm/10.55pm)

An ~eclectic~ mix on the sofa tonight: heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua, Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz, actor Martin Freeman and comedian Greg Davies are all in the house. While Shawn Mendes performs There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back. Not a stellar line-up, but we’ll make do.

The Last Leg: Elegtion Special  (Channel 4, 9pm)

This extended edition deals with yesterday’s UK General Election, and sees regular hosts Adam Hills, Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe go through the thrills and spills of the results with special guests including Steve Coogan, Jamie Oliver, Jon Richardson, Jessica Hynes, Brendan Cox and a host of politicians. Sit back and wait for the Theresa May jokes.

The Kennedys After Camelot (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

No Late Late tonight, so get stuck into the first part of the drama detailing the life of former First Lady of the United States Jacqueline Kennedy in the aftermath of the 1963 assassination of JFK. Katie Holmes, Ted Atherton, Kristin Booth, Matthew Perry and Ari Cohen all star.
