All the telly you’ll be tweeting about.

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

The Supervet At Christmas (Channel 4, 8.00pm)

As the festive season approaches at Fitzpatrick Referrals, Professor Noel and his team treat three special patients. A one-year-old crossbreed puppy rescued by a charity from Romania is in need of complex surgery, with no guarantee of success. An eight-year-old Dalmatian needs work on its spinal cord, and a Labrador from Switzerland is having trouble walking. Noel’s investigations reveal problems with both shoulder and elbow, an unusual combination that requires dramatic intervention.

A Hotel for the Super Rich & Famous (BBC One, 8.00pm)

In the conclusion of the documentary about London’s Corinthia Hotel, the restaurant is not doing as well as it could and needs a big-name chef to compete with other establishments. Enter Tom Kerridge, most famous for his upmarket fish-and-chips – which is not the usual fare for a five-star hotel. However, he has brought along his artist wife Beth to enhance the space with her sculptures. Will the guests enjoy the new food and art? Meanwhile, managing director Thomas Kochs makes an annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas to a five-star trade convention where he hopes to raise the hotel’s profile among the 6,000 delegates.

Walking The Walk (RTÉ One, 10.15pm)

In March, Dublin priest Father Tony Coote was diagnosed with motor neurone disease. He immediately decided to walk the length of Ireland to raise awareness and funds for sufferers. This documentary follows his journey, as he comes to terms with the impact of the condition and leads a growing army of supporters.

Everyone’s talking about: ‘thank u, Jeff’

No, that isn’t a disastrous typo. James Corden wrote a parody of Ariana Grande’s ‘thank u, next’ to show his appreciation for his favourite Jurassic Park actor, Jeff Goldblum.
