What to watch on TV tonight: Saturday

This is the telly everyone will be talking about tomorrow.

Image: amy rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

Live Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor (Sky Sports Box Office, 12am)

Unless you’ve been in hibernation, you’ll know that McGregor is fighting Mayweather tonight. The coverage kicks off at 12am on Sky Sports Box Office and it’ll set you back €25 to get it in. The two will spar sometime after 4am, but whether it can go longer than a few rounds remains to be seen. If you don’t want to feel left out tomorrow, you’ll stay up.

Women’s Rugby World Cup Final (RTÉ 2, 7pm)

Ireland may have had a somewhat lacklustre Rugby World Cup, but we’ll still be tuning in to see England and New Zealand face off in the final live from Belfast’s Kingspan Stadium this evening.

Michael Collins (RTÉ One, 9.10pm)

Get hyped for McGregor by watching the one and only Michael Collins. UP THE IRISH!

Everyone’s talking about… Celebrity Big Brother

Sarah Harding was crowned the winner of Celebrity Big Brother last night


The former Girls Aloud singer triumphed with 35% of the vote beating Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson and The X Factor’s Amelia Lily.

It was a controversial choice with some likening the vote to, er, Brexit.

Congratulations Sarah!
