Who Do You Think You Are? (BBC One, 9pm)

Tv judge Robert Rinder is known for his no-nonsense approach in the courtroom. In this episode, he’s taking a break from that to follow the story of his grandfather who survived the Holocaust and managed to move to Lake Windermere. He will also travel to Latvia to look at the dark history that surrounds his great-grandfather where he will uncover a history of mental illness and trauma that shaped some of his family later on.

Tropic Thunder (TG4, 9.30pm)

Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr, Jack Black and Steve Coogan star in the 2008 comedy. When a movie based on the Vietnam war is over budget and behind schedule, the director decides to send the actors into the jungle and film them fighting guerilla-style.

Ruby Rose has deleted her Twitter account again. The Orange is the New Black actress revealed she only re-made the account after being announced as the new Catwoman but she’s gone again.

There’s been a fair bit of backlash to her casting, particularly as Catwoman is a traditionally Jewish character and Rose is not.  A lot of people aren’t impressed with the backlash that Rose has faced with one user tweeting that she was ‘bullied’ off social media.

Catwoman as a standalone series is expected to air in 2019 and will focus on her alter-ego Kate Kane.
