First Dates Ireland (RTÉ 2, 9.30pm)

It’s Thursday night, so it’s time for your weekly trip to The Gibson Hotel. The First Dates Restaurant will play host to Rory and Peter, who may or may not have crossed paths in the past. Then we have Kristi and Conor, and Suresh and Patricia who are all willing to put their fate in Cupid’s hands. Will love blossom among this week’s batch of hopeful romantics? 

Celebrity Apprentice for Comic Relief (BBC One 9pm)

If you normally experience withdrawals once The Apprentice draws to a close each year, then it’s time to whet your appetite with the Celebrity version. Alan Sugar will be putting the likes of Rylan Clark-Neal, Sam Allardyce, Russell Kane, Omid Djalili, Ayda Williams, Rachel Johnson and Amanda Holden through their paces tonight. 

Bobby Sands: 66 Days (RTÉ One, 10.15pm)

Directed by Brendan Byrne, this 2016 film tells the story of Irish Republican, Bobby Sands, whose 66-day hunger strike attracted global attention. In 1977, Sands was imprisoned for 14 years for possession of a revolver, and four years later in 1981, he conducted a hunger strike – in an effort to change his status from criminal to political prisoner – which ultimately claimed his life.

It’s been one of the most talked about documentaries in recent times, and last night the first episode of a two-part documentary examining abuse allegations levelled against Michael Jackson aired on Channel 4.

The programme, which featured interviews with two men who allege the singer sexually abused them as children, began trending on Twitter last night.

The second episode of the two-part documentary will air on Channel 4 tonight at 9pm.
