A repeat of the 2012 documentary about the late Anne Kirkbride, celebrating her life and soap career. Looks back at her most popular storylines and her beloved character Deirdre Barlow. #DeirdreAndMe 

The Jump (Channel 4, 8pm) 

Strangely compelling reality skiing show where celebrities take on the slopes of the Austrian Alps. #TheJump 

Lochra Gael (TG4, 8pm) 

A profile of the Gaelic footballer and basketballer Liam McHale is the jumping off point for this new series. Once described as good enough for the NBA McHale played for Mayo from 1989 to 1997, but never got his hands on an All Ireland medal. #LochraGael

Everybody’s talking about… #Catastrophe


The third episode of this Channel 4 comedy from Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney and it was funnier than ever. From Sharon’s pregnancy horn to an awful ex boyfriend to the appearance of a Second Captains t-shirt.
