What to watch on TV tonight: Saturday

Here’s the telly that everyone will be talking about tomorrow.

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

Glastonbury Live (BBC2, 5.30pm and 8pm)

The second night of music sees coverage of the headliners Foo Fighters leading the way. Also playing the Pyramid Stage will be Katy Perry, The National, Craig David and… Jeremy Corbyn. Other stages see Liam Gallagher, Solange and Hothouse Flowers strut their stuff. Yes, it’s all set to be quite an evening at Glasto, as the show runs on BBC all the way until 1am. Bunker in. #glastonbury2017

Get Him to the Greek (RTÉ 2, 9pm)

A record company employee is given the dubious task of making sure a manic, sex-crazed British rock star gets from London to his comeback concert in Los Angeles without causing too much mayhem along the way. His task is made all the more difficult by his charge’s infatuation with a model. Comedy, with Russell Brand reprising his role from Forgetting Sarah Marshall alongside Jonah Hill and Rose Byrne.

Bridesmaids (RTÉ One, 9.40pm)

More movies! A disorganised woman is asked to be maid of honour at her best friend’s wedding. Taking charge of the prenuptial bridal celebrations, she resolves to give her pal and accompanying bridesmaids the time of their lives, but as her efforts slide into chaos she finds the wife of the groom’s boss is keen to usurp her position. Comedy, with Kristen Wiig, Rose Byrne and Melissa McCarthy. #bridesmaids


Everybody’s talking about: the moment at Glastonbury last night during Radiohead when a Jeremy Corbyn chant spontaneously began

The chant to the tune of Seven Nation Army was predicted to dominate the festival and sure enough on the first night – and in front of the BBC cameras – the crowd obliged.

Ooooooh Jeremy Corbyn.
