Our expert TV journalists have picked the best things on TV tonight… 

Best TV shows on TV tonight

John Le Mesurier: It’s All Been Rather Lovely, 6.45pm (NI, 7.15pm), BBC2

TV tonight It's All Been Rather Lovely

John and co-star Arthur Lowe

John Le Mesurier will always be remembered as the laidback Sgt Wilson, the counter to the bristly, irritable Captain Mainwaring, in one of Britain’s favourite sitcoms. This documentary, showing before an episode of Dad’s Army, looks at the life of the actor, including his marriage to Hattie Jacques, with contributions from Clive Dunn and Ian Lavender.

Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light, 8pm, BBC1

TV tonight Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light

Our Eurovision entrant, had it gone ahead, James Newman

So here’s the good news: the UK definitely isn’t finishing last this year. But nobody’s getting any points at all, because international lockdown means no Eurovision. Instead, this special broadcast serves as a showcase for the 41 songs that would have been competing, only without the voting/results. If you have a desperate urge to vote for something, Graham Norton hosts Eurovision: Come Together at 6.25pm, where viewers get to have their say on the best Eurovision song of all time…

★★★★ HD

ITV Football Classics, 5pm, ITV

Football fans have had to become accustomed to watching matches from the archives over the past few weeks and, to their credit, ITV and BBC have picked some top-notch ones to show. Today on ITV Football Classics, you can see Cameroon v England at the 1990 World Cup while, earlier, World Cup Rewind (2.05pm, BBC1, not Wales) has highlights of vintage matches including Netherlands v Argentina in 1998. 

★★★ JP

Best box set to watch on TV tonight

Doctor Foster, two seasons, BritBox and Netflix

TV tonight Doctor Foster

Suranne Jones as Doctor Foster

There’s the chance to see Killing Eve star Jodie Comer in a more conventional role – as the younger woman who GP Gemma (Suranne Jones) is convinced her husband Simon (Bertie Carvel) is having an affair with in this compelling drama of a marriage falling apart.

Best film to watch on TV tonight

Made in Dagenham, 10.30pm, BBC4

TV tonight Made in Dagenham

Sally Hawkins’ Rita is out to make a difference

A film about a 1968 strike may not sound particularly appealing, but this is a hugely entertaining film. It follows no-nonsense sewing machinist Rita (Sally Hawkins) as she leads her fellow women workers at the Ford Dagenham car plant to strike in protest against sexual discrimination. Incidentally, despite the strike’s unpopularity in some quarters, the women did manage  to make a difference, with the introduction of the Equal Pay Act two years later. 

If you watch just one thing on TV tonight… 

Don’t miss Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light on TV tonight, at least we won’t come last!

Charli D’Amelio Accidentally Deleted — Then Quickly Reclaimed — Her Massive Instagram Account

  • Post category:Other

A self-owned blip in the wee hours of the morning temporarily wiped away the massively-followed Instagram page of TikTok’s reigning champ, Charli D’Amelio. D’Amelio, who recently turned 16, counts 56 million followers on TikTok and 18 million followers on Instagram — with the latter tally temporarily disappearing in the wake of the accident.

Dexerto reports that after D’Amelio’s page disappeared early this morning, family members took to Twitter to explain that, contrary to popular assumption, she hadn’t been hacked. D’Amelio’s mother, Heidi — a TikTok star in her own right with 825,000 followers — wrote at 4:00 am ET that she was awoken by her daughter simultaneously laughing and crying about what had happened. It’s still unclear how exactly D’Amelio managed to delete her own account, though as of now it’s back up and running, with all of her followers still in tow.

D’Amelio, for her part, laughed at the mishap. “I am not the brightest,” she self-deprecatingly tweeted. Her older sister, Dixie, (24 million TikTok followers) had a similar — though slightly harsher — response. “I live with the biggest idiot ever,” she wrote. “Dummy.”

The D’Amelio sisters recently confirmed that they had parted ways with TikTok creator collective The Hype Houseon a business level. In addition to their massive growth on TikTok, the D’Amelio family recently signed with American Idol producer Industrial Media for a family-based reality show.

Houseparty Throws 3-Day Livestreaming Event Featuring Katy Perry, Snoop Dogg, Addison Rae

  • Post category:Other

Katy Perry, John Legend, Terry Crews, Snoop Dogg, and Neil Patrick Harris are among the more than 40 celebrities that will join fans during Houseparty’s three-day livestreaming event.

Epic Games’ social video app has gained more than 50 million new users since the March onset of COVID-19 lockdowns, and now it’s riding that wave of traffic by offering a weekend stacked with live performances from dozens of traditional and digital stars. The event–called In the House–is tightly scheduled, with streams slated back-to-back from early morning to evening May 15, 16, and 17.

The reason for that, Houseparty co-founder and CEO Sima Sistani told Variety, is because the company wants viewers anticipating streams the way they used to anticipate a new TV premiere.

“We are bringing back appointment viewing…trying to capture that feeling of sitting on the couch for that special show with your family or friends on a Friday night,” she said.

It’s not surprising, then, that Houseparty has debuted a new feature for the event: co-viewing, which will let users add any In the House stream to a group call so that all participants can watch together. (This is not Houseparty’s first collaborative feature; it already lets users play a variety of mobile games together during video chats.)

Sistani added that Houseparty believes In the House is different from other recent celebrity streaming events because it’s not strictly performance-based. There will be some performances–for example, Perry will sing her new song, “Daisies”–but viewers can also expect to see glimpses of celebs’ homes live, plus content that’s not strictly a show. Crews, for example, is using his session to share a workout routine, longtime Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough and TikTok star Addison Rae will offer dance instruction, and Snoop Dogg and Zooey Deschanel will use their time slots for cooking.

Like the rest of Houseparty, In the House will have no advertising, and will be free to use via iOS/Android apps or on the web. (Houseparty has previously said it expects to generate revenue from in-app purchases.)
