What to watch on TV tonight: Thursday

All the telly you’ll be talking about in work tomorrow. rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

First Dates Ireland (RTÉ2, 9.30pm)

It’s our favourite time of the week – First Dates time.

This week is obviously a very special Valentine’s Day edition of the show and sees one couple accidentally meeting up on the Luas before their date and a Limerick woman convinced there’s been a mistake as she’s paired with a Dublin fella she says she has ‘nothing in common with’.

The Secret Life of the Zoo (Channel 4, 8pm)

A flamingo chick is the cause of worry after her mother loses interest in taking care of her, leaving it all to her dad. The zoo keepers also worry about a foal whose health takes a turn, before they help a Sulawesi macaque monkey give birth to a baby only to find it is not welcomed by the other high-ranking female monkeys.

Dating: No Filter (E!, 10pm)

Looking for more first date banter? Well, here’s the American attempt at it which is kind of like a First Dates and Gogglebox hybrid.

The show follows a number of singletons going on a first date, all the while comedians are sat watching live footage backstage and narrating the first encounter for our enjoyment.

The first two episodes of the brand new series air back-to-back tonight.
