The Sinner (BBC Four, 9pm) 

If you haven’t seen this on Netflix yet, it’s time to catch up and find out what all of the hype’s about. The crime series follows detective Harry Ambrose as he tries to make sense of a startling murder that has unexpectedly taken place in public. During an afternoon at the beach with her husband and son, a woman (played by Jessica Biel) is consumed by a fit of rage and commits an act of stark violence without understanding why. 

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! (Virgin Media One, 9.30pm) 

Declan and Holly host the week’s celebrity survival challenge as week two at camp comes to a close and another Bush Tucker Trial appears on the horizon. 

Extract (TG4, 9.20pm) 

Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig and Mila Kunis star in this indie romance about a factory owner who seems to have it all, but really doesn’t. He finds his relationship is under stress, as he’s not receiving the sexual attention he’d like from his wife, and conjures up a convoluted plan to get her to cheat on him so that he can have an affair with one of his employees without getting into trouble. The employee that the factory owner falls for turns out to be a con artist, who’s trying her best to take him to the cleaners.
