Guilt bows out, more big twists in a new series of Inside No. 9 and some blockbuster action from the Russo brothers in Citadel.
I’m A Celebrity… South Africa
I'm A Celebrity is back to rekindle some careers with an all-star edition in South Africa, which ITV promises will be "bigger, tougher, and the environment harsher" than ever before.
There will be no public vote this time, so Amir Khan, Jordan Banjo, Helen Flanagan, Carol Vorderman, Fatima Whitbread, Paul Burrell, Phil Tufnell, Janice Dickinson and Shaun Ryder will be competing against one another for the title of 'I'm A Celebrity Legend'.
The Curse S2
Channel 4, 10.00pm
Tom Davis and James De Frond's retro comedy caper hits the Costa Del Crime for its second series, re-joining the gang eighteen months on from the calamitous finale of series one.
Albert (Allan Mustafa), Tash (Emer Kenny) and Sidney (Steve Stamp) are meant to be on the run, but they're living it up in the Costa Del Sol due to the lack of extradition treaty with the UK. While they're busy investing the gold money into restaurants, hotels and bars, Big Mick (Davis) is awaiting trial in the clink, albeit still enjoying his newfound infamy thanks to his involvement in what was the biggest gold heist in history.
Unable to make any arrests, Detectives Saunders (Geoff Bell) and Thread (Ambreen Razia) are forced to go undercover to gather as much evidence as they can.
BBC Two, 9.00pm
Mark Bonnar and Jamie Sives make their final outing as the two estranged brothers who were united by guilt when they accidentally ran over an old man.
Neil Forsyth, who recently won plaudits for historical heist caper The Gold, has penned another four episodes of the comedy drama, which see enemies old and new push the brothers into ever more drastic measures. Max and Jake will have to dig deep into their past to free themselves from danger and each other.
Inside No 9 S8
BBC Two, 10.00pm
Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton serve up another series of their taut and twisting anthology, some funny, some frightening, with each self-contained story set in a Number 9 of some kind.
The likes of Amanda Abbington (We Are Not Alone), Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey) and Asim Chaudry (People Just Do Nothing) are on the line-up this time. But in this first episode, Pemberton and Shearsmith star as the sons of East End villains digging up the skeletons from their parents' closet, while Phil Daniels guest appears.
Prime Video is going big with Citadel, a new sci-fi spy series which, as of 2023, is the second most expensive series of all time. With a budget of $300 million, and the Russo Brothers executive producing, we can expect some blockbuster action in the vein of their MCU films.
Richard Madden (Bodyguard) and Priyanka Chopra Jonas (Quantico) star as the elite agents Mason Kane and Nadia Sinh, who both had their memories wiped when they narrowly escaped the downfall of their independent spy agency, Citadel. They've been hiding out since, living new lives and unaware of their pasts, until Stanley Tucci's Bernard Olick, a former colleague of Mason's, tracks him down to enlist him in the fight against the threat of a new world order.
