Today's TV highlights...

The Last Leg (Channel 4, 10pm)

What started as a companion show during the 2012 Paralympics has become one of the most popular light entertainment series on the box.

This week The Last Leg returns for a 14th run, and in the first of nine episodes, usual suspects Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker will be poking fun at the week's news, while in social media land, members of the public will be asking "Is it okay?"

And yes, there will be more big names dropping in to discuss topical issues and no doubt plug their latest project.

Obviously the team are keeping their powder dry until 10pm, but there's a good bet Donald Trump will be featuring prominently in their discussions, along with the rest of the week's most controversial, or delightful newsmakers.

Over the years the trio have been praised for their reaction and topical coverage of the week's most harrowing news stories, as well as their ability to open up the conversations surrounding disability through their coverage of the Paralympic Games and beyond.

Their coverage of the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro and 2018 Winter Paralympic Games in Pyeong Chang proved especially unmissable.

Of course there's never a shortage of issues worth sending up or attacking head on. From the most controversial US Election in living memory, to the snap General Election in 2017, and the Brexit Referendum, the views of Hills, Brooker and Widdicombe have become essential viewing, or in a lot of people's cases, listening.

Reacting to horrific stories like the Westminster and the Manchester attacks, as well as the Grenfell blaze could have put the team on very thin ice. However, by addressing issues that some comedy shows might avoid, many would say they've emerged as a stronger show.

Over the years the team has received plenty of gongs for The Last Leg, including the Royal Television Society Award for Best Entertainment in 2018, 2017 and 2015.

Aside from TLL, Adam has no shortage of other projects to keep him busy. He's part of a rugby league disability team in Warrington, which he's hoping will become the basis of a documentary.

Hills has also been working on Best Foot Forward, an autobiography which is due out next month.

The multi-talented funnyman thinks people will be amazed when they realise how long he has been doing comedy. He's included stories from when he started making people laugh almost 30 years ago.

"I think it's going to surprise people how long it took me to make it," he explained recently.

If the host ever wanted to go solo on TV, Adam and the Rants wouldn't be a bad title for a show, as some of his venting about everything from a female Doctor Who to a certain celebrity sending a badly judged Tweet has made for compelling viewing.

It's anyone's guess what we can expect from the new run, but if previous instalments have been anything to go by, there's a good bet that Trump swear jar will be fit to burst by the time the closing credits roll.

Unsung Heroines: Danielle de Niese on the Lost World of Female Composers (BBC4, 8pm)

The soprano explores the lives and works of five female composers, from the middle ages to the late 20th century, who were famous in their lifetimes but whose work was then forgotten. Traditionally, western classical music is seen as a procession of male geniuses, but the truth is that women have always composed. Hildegard of Bingen, Francesca Caccini, Clara Schumann, Florence Price and Elizabeth Maconchy all battled to fulfil their ambitions and overcome the obstacles that society placed in their way, but then disappeared into obscurity and only some have found recognition again. Contributors include pianist Lucy Parham.

Cruising with Jane McDonald (C5, 9pm)

It's not a bad life being the star of this show. After all, not only does she get paid to travel the world, but with a Bafta under her belt, there's little chance of producers pulling the plug for a good year or more. In the first of a two-parter, she's exploring South America aboard a luxury ship. Beginning in Valparaiso, Jane enjoys a street art tour, before travelling south along the Chilean coast. A few days later she oohs and aahs over a glacier on Laguna San Rafael, and partakes in the traditional drinking of whisky on ice directly from the glacier. In deepest Patagonia, she stops off in Punta Arenas, and then once back on board the ship, Jane enjoys a tour of the bridge with the captain as they head for the Falklands.

The Bridge (BBC2, 9pm)

Pressure mounts as Tommy's uncooperative mother cannot be held much longer without the supply of evidence. Niels Thormod's name re-surfaces in the investigation as it transpires a private detective he hired hoping to find something more than the police has gone missing. Lillian is hard-pressed to solve the case and it seems there is an inside source leaking information. Saga is called to Sweden when a young man wanting to confess to killing his father, has a connection to Henrik's family's past. Crime drama, in Danish and Swedish, starring Sofia Helin and Thure Lindhardt.
