What to watch on TV tonight: Friday

The TV everyone will be talking about tomorrow. rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

The Holiday (RTE One, 9.35pm)

The ultimate Christmas romcom, surely? Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz are both at their wits ends with their current lives, with the latter coming out of a failed relationship while poor Kate is in the depths of despair over an unrequited love. They find each other through some sort of house swap website and essentially switch lives over the Christmas holidays. Add Jude Law, Jack Black and some wholesome emotions, and you’re laughing.

The Graham Norton Show (BBC One, 10.40pm)

The host is joined by one-time Fresh Prince Will Smith, who is currently starring in sci-fi police drama Bright. Also taking up residency on the sofa is Jenna Coleman, who is set to return in the title role of ITV’s drama Victoria, and chef and restauranteur Jamie Oliver, who talks about his new book 5 Ingredients. Plus, ex-Keane frontman Tom Chaplin performs Midnight Mass.

TOTP2 Xmas 2017 (BBC Four, 7:30pm)

Ignore the insane amount of abbreviation and appreciate the choons. Mark Radcliffe narrates a celebratory compilation of festive hits, featuring the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl, Wizzard, Slade, Mariah Carey and the Flying Pickets. Plus, other classics by the Darkness, Skepta (?) the Spice Girls, Coldplay and Wham!
