What to watch on TV tonight: Monday

Here are the shows that’ll be on your Twitter timeline this evening.

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

Simply Nigella, Christmas Special (BBC2 8pm) 

Slow cooked black treacle ham, three cakes, parsnip and spinach soup, sprout stir fry… Nigella, it’s almost too much. As an added bonus, it’s an hour-long special.

The Ring (TG4, 9.30pm) 

The one where the girl crawls out of the telly. A proper scare from 2002. So festive!

Tested on Humans (RTÉ 2, 9pm) 

Breakfast Republic presenter Keith Walsh and model Claire Tracey try to settle who handles pain better, men or women. And you know what that means? Yep: simulated labour pains.

Everybody’s talking about… The X Factor Final

Adele’s haircut, Harry’s suit, and the perennial accusations of a fix.

And of course, Cheryl and Simon acting like they were at mass for the first time in years.
