What to Watch on TV Tonight: Monday

This is the telly everyone will be talking about.

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

The Manchurian Candidate (TG4, 9.30pm)

A remake of the 1962 thriller. Starring Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep, the film tells the story of a Gulf War veteran who – following a series of strange nightmares – is convinced that he and his comrades were the victims of untoward events while in combat. Investigating his suspicions proves difficult as figures in the political world do their best to thwart his attempts.

Liam Bakes (Channel 4, 8pm)

Cupcakes, bread and butter pudding and salted caramel shortbread are on the menu tonight. So, let’s talk details: Liam’s cupcake is inspired by a cherished childhood dessert, his pudding takes on a tropical twist while his shortbread can be used to play dominoes. No, seriously.

People Just Do Nothing (BBC Two, 10pm)

Miche plans a meal with the gang for Grindah’s 33rd birthday while the Kurupt boyos organise a screening of their music video at a student party in an attempt to prove they’re not past it. 


Everyone is talking about…. Harry Redknapp

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here came to an end last night, with Harry Redknapp being crowned the first King of the Jungle since 2014.

Harry pipped Emily Atack and John Barrowman to the post for first place, and by the look of things, viewers are confident the right person won.

As the 71-year-old reflected on his time in the jungle, viewers at home took to Twitter to announce their delight over this year’s winner.
