The Longford Phoenix (RTÉ One, 6.30pm)

On Christmas morning in 2009, the people of Longford awoke to the news that their beloved St Mel’s Cathedral had been gutted by fire overnight. It finally re-opened this year on Christmas Eve. This documentary charts the five-year journey to restore the beautiful building to its former glory. #longfordphoenix

Charlie Brooker’s 2014 Wipe (BBC2, 10pm)

From ISIS to Dapper Laughs to ice bucket challenges, the perennially cynical Charlie Brooker is back to remind us just why 2014 was sh*t. Even the good parts were sh*t. Believe it. #2014wipe

Come Dine With Me: Christmas Special (Channel 4, 7.05pm)
