The BRIT Awards 2019 (UTV, 8pm)

Everybody’s talking about… The first trailer for the new Michael Jackson documentary, Leaving Neverland. 

On Wednesday the 6th of March, the documentary will air, with testimony from the men who allege they were abused by Michael Jackson. Last night HBO finally released the first trailer, which some viewers may find upsetting.

Everybody’s also talking about… The actress who played Heather Trott in Eastenders begging RTÉ for a role on Fair City.

Cheryl Ferguson (who you’ll definitely remember from her days in Eastenders) is a huge fan of Fair City, apparently. She visited the set of Carrigstown in RTÉ’s studios and pleaded with the broadcasters for a spot on the show, even if they decide to kill her off in six month’s time. Really strange, but then again, considering how close we’re getting to Brexit, she might just be looking for some secure work in the EU.
