What to watch on TV tonight: Thursday

This is the TV everyone will be talking about tomorrow. rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice (Channel 4, 10pm)

Jo Brand reviews the events of Italian week – which saw *spoiler* scientist Yan get the boot. As well as talking to this week’s eliminated baker, Jo will be having the chats with her celebrity panellists, getting their thoughts and inviting them to taste the audience bakes.

Trauma: Ireland’s Medical Emergencies (RTÉ 2, 9.30pm)

New series. This documentary follows the work of emergency medical teams at four Irish hospitals. Broadcaster Ronan Collins is taken to Beaumont in need of emergency surgery, and after a violent attack a man arrives at the Mater Hospital carrying part of his ear, hoping it can be reattached. Brace yourself.

Titanic (Film4, 9pm)

No Apprentice spoilers here, just enjoy Sugar.


Or flick over for...

  • Mr Mercedes (RTÉ One, 11.15pm) The fourth episode of the Stephen King adaptation starring Brendan Gleeson.
  • Educating Greater Manchester (Channel 4, 9pm) We're coming to the end of the series, and tonight we meet mischievous friends Tiger and Billy.
  • Find Me a Home (RTÉ One, 8.30pm) Trying to find a gaff in Ireland - so difficult that a documentary needed to be made about the struggles.
  • First Dates Ireland (RTÉ 2, 10.30pm) Even if it is a repeat, it's still better than most things on air.
