Best TV shows on TV tonight
Jamie: Keep Cooking Family Favourites, 8.30pm, C4
Jamie Oliver has more tasty treats on the menu in this new 10-part series. He gets down to business with a roast chicken dinner recipe inspired by the flavours of margherita pizza. And just wait till you see what he does with the potatoes! He also takes prawn toast to another level by turning it into a toastie! But will the chef’s harshest critics – his kids! – give dad the thumbs-up?
Unforgotten, 9pm, ITV
Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar are back as DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan for the fourth series of this compelling crime drama. Having made the decision to retire, Cassie then learns that if she doesn’t complete 30 years service, she won’t be eligible for her full pension. So it’s back to work when a body that had been stored in a freezer for 30 years is discovered in a scrapyard. With Sheila Hancock, Susan Lynch, Phaldut Sharma, Liz White, Andy Nyman and Lucy Speed all playing characters who may have known the deceased, we can’t wait to see how the story unfolds.
DIY SOS: The Big Build, 9pm, BBC1
Davey McCreight from Bangor, Northern Ireland, is a real-life superhero. He looks after his disabled wife, Mandy, and their teenage kids, Ben, who has autism, and Kara. Like their mum, they have Ehlers-Danos syndrome so both have mobility issues, too. Davey cares for all three of them, and is suffering from a bad back himself. Can the team make the house wheelchair-friendly and give Mandy (and Davey) some much-needed freedom?
