What to watch on TV tonight: Thursday

This is the telly everyone will be talking about tomorrow.

DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

Who Do You Think You Are? (RTÉ One, 10.15pm)

Singer and former X Factor judge Cheryl takes part in the popular genealogy documentary, in which famous faces trace their family trees. The one-time Girls Aloud member knows little about her heritage, beyond her sense as a true Geordie, so she sets out to trace her roots in the North East of England. On her father’s side she discovers a seafaring ancestor and a family tragedy. On her mother’s side, she learns the story of her long-forgotten great-grandfather, a soldier in the First World War who fought in one of the most famous battles on the Western Front.

Celebrity Sextortion (Channel 4, 10.00pm)

In November 2016, former ITV breakfast host Dan Lobb was shocked when a video of him committing a sexual act, filmed without his knowledge, was leaked online. It was taken from a Skype session he had years before with a Twitter follower he had been flirting with online. Here he sets out to discover the truth behind the video, having discovered that other male British celebrities had been targeted in the same way.

The Handmaid’s Tale (RTÉ Two, 9.30pm)

Offred is sent to a familiar place. Nick is rocked by Gilead’s brutal response to a crime. Emily is assigned to a mysterious new house. Last in the series.


Everyone’s talking about: Love Island and the World Cup

The islanders have been keeping up with the games, just FYI.

Recent dumpee Adam Collard revealed that the islanders grill new arrivals – even when they’re not supposed to.


“When Sam Bird came into the house we pestered the life out of him and then he told us the England score for the first game…

“The girls in Casa Amor told us the second score, but the producers really don’t tell us anything.”

Yeah, maybe don’t tell them last night’s result so. (Digital Spy)


Or flick over for …

  • Love Island (3e, 9.00pm) Who will win over new girl Alexandra?
  • Keeping Faith (BBC One, 9.00pm) New series. Lawyer, wife and mother Faith Howells is drawn into a mystery when her husband and business partner Evan disappears.
  • Mock The Week (BBC Two, 10.00pm) More topical LOLz with Dara O’Briain and Hugh Dennis.
