What to watch on TV tonight: Wednesday

Here are the shows that will be on your Twitter timeline later.

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


The Great British Bake Off (BBC One, 8pm) 

In the most hyped TV return since Game of Thrones, Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood and co are back in the tent for another tense round of baking. Will there be another #bingate? Who will be this season’s most hated contestant? WILL THE SQUIRREL BE BACK? #GBBO 

One Born Every Minute (Channel 4, 9pm) 

Slide directly from the comforting telly duvet that is GBBO into the screaming and emotional depths of the labour ward. This week sees a mam with Cystic Fibrosis give birth, and an unexpected turn of events during labour. #OBEM #OneBorn 

Casino Royale (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

Daniel Craig’s first outing as Bond, James Bond. Is this the one where he comes out of the sea in the pants? *checks internet* Yes, yes it is. You’re welcome. Eva Green, Mads Mikkelsen and Judi Dench also star. #Casino Royale


Everybody’s talking about… #Rubberbandits

The Limerick pair have signed a deal with ITV for their own game show this autumn.

The Almost Impossible Gameshow comes from the producers of Total Wipeout and will see those taking part “pit themselves against our incredibly simple yet fiendishly difficult games designed to test the most competitive contestants out there”.

The Rubberbandits have told The Limerick Leader:

It’s basically loads of Brits falling over in the mud and us laughing at them. Haven’t a clue when it’s going on TV. But we are looking forward to taking the piss out of the Craic and Tans.
