Prepare yourself to grieve as Ghosts is in its fifth and final series, be scandalised by satirical drama Partygate, or engrossed by the antics in the Big Brother house.
Channel 4, 9.30pm
Partygate serves as both a Fresh Meat reunion (Kimberley Nixon and Charlotte Richie will be starring) and a troubling visual on what really went on behind the doors of No.10 back in 2020.
This "factual drama" is based on "meticulous research," with Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia’s Lucy) and Ophelia Lovibond (Guardian of the Galaxy’s Carina) portraying two fictional special advisors who act as an amalgamation of real figures.
The series will combine dramatic re-enactments with archival footage and documentary interviews, featuring impressionist Jon Culshaw (Dead Ringers) as the voice of Boris Johnson.
All Creatures Great and Small: Series Four
Channel 5, 9.00pm
Based on the life and works of veterinary surgeon James Herriot, All Creatures Great and Small details the lives of vets working in the late 1930s Yorkshire Dales.
The looming Second World War of the previous series is now beginning, as tensions begin mounting in Europe. Newly qualified vet Tristan (Callum Woodhouse) will not be returning to Darrowby, or the series, as he has enlisted in the Royal Army Veterinary Corps. His absence is felt by all, and soon they need an extra helping hand at the surgery, with undergraduate vet Richard (James Anthony-Rose, Slow Horses) travelling from London for a new life in the countryside.
Ghosts: Series 5
BBC One, 8.30pm
Alison (Charlotte Richie, Fresh Meat) inherited Button House from a long-lost relative. She also inherited a series of long-dead relatives (and unfortunate Button House guests), who she had the pleasure of meeting after an incredibly near-death experience of her own.
Setting up a hotel in a house populated by needy ghosts was never going to be easy, and for the last four series Alison has had to cope with unfortunately-timed lightning strikes, scheming neighbours, and zorbing-gone-wrong. In its fifth and final outing, haunting problems are the least of their worries…
Have I Got News for You: Series 66
BBC One, 9.00pm
Paul Merton and Ian Hislop are back for their 33rd year on the job as team captains. Have I Got News For You asks its panels of celebrity guests questions about the news of the week. Whether they get that answer right is not important, as they are awarded points if their answer is wrong but witty.
Everyone from Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch to ex-Prime Minister Boris Johnson has hosted the series (including, once, a simple tub of lard). Comedian Victoria Coren Mitchell will host the first episode.
Big Brother is watching a new cast of housemates over on ITV, after five years off our screens.
Joined by hosts AJ Odudu (The Big Interiors Battle) and Will Best (Dance Dance Dance), 17 ordinary people will move into the Big Brother house and be completely isolated from the outside world. This series’ line-up of contestants includes DJs, Deaflympics gold medallists and professional flutists.
Monitored closely by cameras and microphones, their every action will be condensed into six weekly shows on ITV2 and streamed live "into the small hours" on ITVX.
