What to watch on TV tonight: Friday

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.

Love Island (3e, 9pm)

I’m SORRY but TV is brutal tonight and Love Island is brilliant. So. Tonight, two of the boys are getting ditched from the villa. Newbie Alexandra has a tough choice to make. Will she pick Doctor Alex to stay, despite the fact that he seems incapable of giving off any sexual energy whatsoever? Or will she pick one of the new boys, shit-stirring Idris or the other one. Kieran, that’s it. Tune in and see.

Eight Out 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4, 9pm)

Tonight’s 8 Out of 10 Cats is a very special one. To mark 100 years of women’s suffrage, it’s an all-female episode. Katherine Ryan is taking over Jimmy Carr’s hosting seat, and is joined by Roisin Conaty, Jessica Hynes, Sara Pascoe, and Lolly Adefope. Brilliant.

Mrs Doubtfire (e4, 7.30pm)

Had a rough week? Planning on legging it out of the office at 5pm to get straight into your pjs, order a pizza, and sip a bottle of wine? What better movie to accompany you into the bright evening than Mrs Doubtfire. A true gem.
