 Britain’s Best Home Cook: The Final (BBC One, 8pm)

The bar is raised tonight, so that Mary Berry, Dan Doherty and Chris Bavin can decide who they’re going to crown as the winner on tonight’s episode. First up, there’ll be a recipe challenge, then the cooks will have an opportunity to show off their inventiveness and creativity with two key ingredients: chicken and mushrooms.  Finally, contestants will have three hours to prepare the best dinner and dessert combo that they can come up with, and judges will make their final decision.

Supershoppers (Channel 4, 8pm)

A look at some money-saving tips that all savvy consumers should know. The Suppershoppers tonight look at waterproof boots that can’t be trusted to keep your feet dry, and reveal some tips on how to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your wifi subscription. They’ll also show us some of the ways we’re being scammed by major companies, including the case of when one bestselling British lager company were watering down their beer to reduce costs, and how chocolate brands are making us pay more for less.
