Gogglebox Ireland: Celebrity Special (TV3, 10pm)

Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, John Lithgow and Mel Gibson are very special guests on Gogglebox Ireland tonight. The cast of Daddy’s Home 2 sat down to examine Irish telly when they were over on their promotional tour last week – and it includes their thoughts on Fair City, with Ferrell commenting: ”It’s just dawning on me… in Fair City, nothing’s fair”. Wise words.

The Apprentice (BBC One, 9pm)

It’s said every single year, but this edition genuinely does have a claim on having the most incompetent contestants in the history of the show. Tonight, Sugar tasks the candidates with running a selection of their own services for dog owners. Based at an established pooch-pampering venue, the teams must try to tempt discerning dog owners to part with their cash for services. Bound to go well.

The Secret Life of the Zoo (Channel 4, 8pm)

The keepers try to work out why male red panda Jung is losing weight, with a full medical examination scheduled after a special diet fails to solve the problem. West African mandrill JC is being challenged for his dominant position by his sons Ludo and Jareth and, while JC is taken for some health checks, Ludo gets ‘over-friendly’ with his dad’s girlfriend.


Everybody’s talking about: Jack Maynard being kicked off I’m A Celeb

Only two days in and the YouTube star has been removed from the camp after a series of homophobic and racist tweets were discovered on his Twitter account.

As The HuffingtonPost reports:

His publicist confirmed his exit so he could be made aware of allegations against him and have the right to defend himself, adding he agreed with the decision “made by his representatives and ITV”.
In a statement, his publicist said: “In the last few days Jack Maynard has been the subject of a succession of media stories which, given his position as a contestant on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! – filmed in the Australian jungle, with no contact with the outside world, he has been unable to respond to.

The Mirror is reporting that Maynard has already began his journey back to the UK.
