DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

Joanna & Jennifer: Absolutely Champers (BBC Two, 10pm)

Absolutely Fabulous stars Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders are actually more like their characters Patsy and Edina than we realise. The pair of them, who are obviously massive fans of champagne, head to France to explore the Champagne region and learn more about the drink they’ve been knocking back for decades now. Along the way, they share stories and anecdotes from their personal lives and careers.

Philomena (RTÉ One, 9.30pm)

Drama recounting the true story of Philomena Lee, a Catholic woman who gave birth out of wedlock in 1950s rural Ireland, resulting in a life of hardship. Philomena was abandoned by her family, forced to live in an abbey, where nuns sold her child for adoption, and felt that she needed to keep her secret for fifty years, until journalist Martin Sixsmith helped her begin a journey to track down her estranged son.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (Channel 4, 8pm)

As the name suggests, this is the sequel to the 2011 comedy The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Sonny wants to expand business while he still has time, but he also has to prepare for his wedding with Sunaina. With surveyors scrutinizing his business and deepening financial trouble, Sonny has a lot on his plate.
