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

Gogglebox Ireland Does 80s & 90s (Virgin Media One, 9pm) 

The Irish Goggleboxers sit back and take a trip through the TV archives in this Gogglebox special tonight, and receive a comical reminder that Ireland was a very different place back in 1994, when lovely ladies were going head to head to win Calor’s Housewife of the Year competition. After that, we’ll see if Gay Byrne’s instruction on how to use a condom from 1987 is still enough to make audiences cringe. 

Operation Transformation (RTÉ One, 9.35pm) 

Although it’s a staple of January TV, in recent years we’ve been all been offered more and more information about diets and healthy methods of weight loss. An increasing number of viewers are feeling a bit conflicted about shows like Operation Transformation, despite their feel-good factor. Even Elaine Crowley, who took part in the celebrity version of Operation Transformation spoke out earlier this year, saying she regretted going on the show because “Psychologically, it can be quite damaging to be weighed in such a manner.” Nonetheless, the show returns tonight for a brand new series, and as always it’ll follow a group of people as they try to shed some weight and get fit with the help of a dietitian, fitness instructor and a psychologist. 

An Balla (TG4, 9.30pm) 

A brand new series in which Síle Nic Chonaonaigh visits the border between the US and Mexico, which stretches for almost 2,000 miles from the Pacific Coast to the Gulf of Mexico. While here, she meets locals and hears moving stories of not just love and loss, but hope and compassion. As it stands, there are currently 750 miles of impenetrable wire fences, concrete walls and iron barriers along the border, but President Trump remains insistent that he wants to extend the wall along this boundary to keep out the hundreds and thousands of people who cross into America illegally each year.


Everybody’s talking about… Netflix revealing a new Bandersnatch outcome. 

Last night Netflix decided to share a little tip for Bandersnatch viewers on Twitter.

If you want to go home and test this out yourself later on, stop reading now.


If you’re too lazy to watch the show again, keep reading and prepare for a SPOILER. Here’s what happens if you pick up the family photo twice while watching Black Mirror: Bandersnatch: Jerome F. Davies, author of Bandersnatch, appears to Stefan in a dream and forces him to retread and pick up the book, ushing viewers back onto the main path of the story, according to Pedestrian. However, some Twitter users have claimed that one of the outcomes of this is JFD stabbing Stefan, too. As well as all of this, Netflix have apparently added a scene that’s completely inaccessible to the vast majority of viewers, and hardcore fans are now desperately trying to discover how to find it.
