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

 Plus Sized Wars (Channel 4, 8pm) 

Three high street brands and their response to the demand for larger clothes sizes. Includes contributions from plus size bloggers and models. The Daily Mail called it a “horrifying Channel 4 documentary”. Of course it did. #PlusSizedWars

Super Garden (RTÉ One, 8.30pm)

Suffering from Room to Improve withdrawals? Maybe jazzing up a garden will float your boat instead. The first episode travels to Bettstown in Meath. So glam. #SuperGarden

One Born Every Minute (Channel 4, 9pm)

Tonight’s cohort of new mams includes a teenager who didn’t know she was pregnant until she was six months along. Prepare to clench. #OneBornEveryMinute #OneBorn

Everybody talking about… #Aidan Turner’s chesticles

And his scything skills.

It turns out that the Dubliner’s topless gardening in Poldark has upset scything enthusiasts (yes, really) who say his grunting and bad technique has tarnished the art. (Irish Mirror)

Meanwhile it also turns out that Turner didn’t audition with his top off for the role of Ross Poldark. It was just a cheeky bonus for the programme makers.
